Applications will open in January 2020! - English Experience Camps

We are looking for well-qualified and enthusiastic people to work on our English Camps abroad – mostly in Italy and Slovenia, but also in Germany and France. Normally based in local schools, these English-language holiday courses (tailored for ages 7 to 14, and 13 to 18) run from Monday to Friday over one or two weeks, generally at the beginning or end of the European school summer holidays. Our full-immersion, fun approach to learning focuses on giving every child a chance to get involved, and integrates structured classroom sessions with sports activities and art and drama workshops. So for each camp – managed by a senior team member who has worked with us before – we need to recruit both EFL teachers and activity leaders who have experience of working with children.

A rewarding opportunity to develop EFL skills abroad

Camps are well organised, offer great opportunities for professional development, and are good fun to be a part of (our retention rates are currently over 60 per cent!). We offer the following benefits:

  • competitive rates of pay
  • travel to and from the camp, from a UK airport (or from a location abroad)
  • full-board accommodation with a friendly host family
  • evenings and weekends free: all planning done in working hours
  • bespoke resources and a like-minded, encouraging team
  • support throughout, both from the UK office and a camp coordinator
  • the opportunity for returners to be promoted to a coordinator role
  • possibility of working back-to-back camps depending on your availability
  • a great experience that could be put towards building a career in EFL

What we need you to offer us

  • enthusiasm and experience of working with children
  • teachers: qualifications to teach English as a foreign language
  • activity leaders: relevant experience working with children
  • to be available for one or two weeks either in June, late August or September
  • the capability to be in sole charge of groups of up to 15 students
  • willingness to work as part of a mixed team of teachers and activity leaders
  • willingness to help organise all-camp activities and the final performance
