If you enjoy meeting people from different countries and cultures, and you want a teaching role, this job could be perfect for you. You will need an excellent standard of English, a degree or a qualification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).

You will also need patience and a good sense of humour. As an EFL teacher, you would teach English to people whose first or main language is not English.

Your students may need to learn English to:
• help with their work or improve their conversational English;
• improve their grammar and pronunciation;
• prepare for an exam, prepare for the Life in the UK test, or for British citizenship;

In this job you would:
• prepare and teach language lessons and activities;
• produce learning resources and syllabuses;
• encourage talking to develop language and understanding;

Your working hours would vary depending on the funding we receive. Currently we have funding for 4h – 6h a week depending on the take up by students. We would like to deliver the teaching during school hours. As well as classroom teaching, you would spend time preparing lessons and materials and record-keeping. You would be based in a classroom for most of the time.


We pay £20 per hour including preparation or, if you have more than 5 years' experience of teaching, we may increase the payment depending on your qualifications and skills.
