We have a vacancy to begin mid September for a qualified teacher in a small but growing language school in Elche, Spain.
The position would involve teaching students of different levels as well as different age groups but mainly children and teens. I am especially keen to find someone who enjoys working with younger learners.
There is a maximum of 8 students in each group. We can offer between 18 and 24 teaching hours a week subject to your experience. Most of our classes are in the afternoon from 4:30-8:30 (Monday-Thursday) and there is an option to teach other classes in the school or online too.
Some classroom teaching experience is required and the ideal candidate must be professional and passionate about teaching with a motivation to develop. We are looking for dynamic language teachers to work with our students in a friendly yet professional environment.
We offer salaries which are competitive and you’ll have the opportunity to develop professionally.
We are interested in hearing from experienced teachers who can hit the ground running or even those who are starting out and need some more guidance and support. We recognise that character and other experiences are just as important as hours spent in the classroom!
Our school is small but growing quickly and therefore, there will be some great opportunities for teachers who wish to take on some managerial responsibilities and potentially, run their own academy.
Salary and benefits
Salary is negotiable depending on experience and what you can bring to the role. The rates of pay are above the local average and can be reviewed after the completion of the first term. Initially, there will be a minimum of 18 contact hours per week with an option to take on more hours and responsibilities if desired.
You will receive a contract with Social Security contributions.
The contract is for 9 months from mid September until mid June and includes 3 weeks paid holidays at Christmas and Easter. There may be an option to work in the summer too. For information about the term dates see www.englishwithkaty.com/info

– Participating in social activities with students
– Producing materials for online conversation courses
