summer EFL teaching jobs at WEC: be part of a great team

We have summer job vacancies for qualified and experienced EFL teachers to join our team for the first part or all of the summer of 2019. We are looking for teachers who enjoy working with teenagers and are keen to provide interesting and motivating lessons which students love to attend.

We have a very supportive team of teachers who enjoy sharing their ideas and materials and we provide regular short workshops for teachers who want to further their skills.

Lessons are held on weekday mornings between 09:00 and 12.30 with breaks totalling 30 minutes each day.

Classes have a maximum of 15 students. Our students come from all over the world, although most are from Europe and China.

Each course has a syllabus. The lesson content depends on the level of the class, but most lessons include grammar, writing, reading, speaking and listening skills, as well as vocabulary-building. Project work is also included.

We have vacancies for teaching only as well as for teachers who wish to accompany the students on some of their afternoon, evening or weekend activities. Teachers who wish to do this extra work can choose between 5 and 17.5 hours per week.
