Summer School EFL Teacher (Residential)
Fixed Term; Approx. 6.5 weeks
Benefits: 5% Employer/5% Employee Contribution Pension; Free Meals and Accommodation
Start Date: July 2023
Closing Date: January 2023
In 2022, Haileybury delivered its first International Summer School and we are building on this success in 2023. The programme has an academic focus and it is aimed at international students aged 11-17 with varying levels of English. The different courses include an impressive range of activities and some exciting excursions to top-end destinations.
You will be required to deliver a top-quality academic programme. We do not use course books so teachers are expected to use a variety of resources and techniques when planning, to ensure the design and delivery of engaging, learner-centred lessons using CLIL and TBL methodology. Learners will choose a pathway: STEM or Arts, Business and Humanities and one of a number of project classes and will learn English through their chosen subjects. We also run a short ‘International Study Preparation Course which is more focussed on developing academic skills.
You will ensure all academic administration is completed to a high standard. The majority of learners will take Trinity GESE exams and you will assist with preparation for the exams.
Teachers will also undertake pastoral and activity duties as required.
The nature of a 24 hour a day, 7 days per week summer school requires staff to work flexibly. The work is intense, days are long and whether on or off duty, staff are expected to put the needs of the pupils and the reputation of the school first. However, it is extremely rewarding and enables staff to develop their knowledge and skills in a vibrant, energetic workplace.
