         Salary and Benefits: Teachers normally earn between €560 & €660 per week for 16 morning hours @ €30ph, plus two to three afternoon monitoring/guiding shifts @€40 per shift.

         Each teacher teaches two different classes/levels per day Monday to Friday, one in the  first part of morning    and one in the second – this is done to give students exposure to different teachers, methods, accents and of course to keep the students and teachers from getting too bored with each other. For example, you may teach an upper intermediate (C1) from 9:30 until 11:15 and an elementary class (A2) from 11:30 until 13:10. On Friday, classes finish at 10:50.

         For this position, teachers need to be flexible, creative, good-natured, safeguarding aware and professional. Our  summer courses have an international outlook and we need our teachers to have a truly global viewpoint regarding English language usage and needs. Teachers must also understand and appreciate that most of our students need English to communicate with speakers of all languages and not just another native English speakers.
