We are looking for enthusiastic and dynamic teachers (Residential and Non-residential) to work at our 7 British Council and English UK & Young Learners English UK accredited summer centres across the UK during July and into August.


Contracts are for 4 weeks with the possibility of an additional 2 weeks. Shorter contracts may also be available, please ask. Staff training takes place 1 or 2 days before the Centre start date.


We are looking for applicants who are committed and have a genuine interest in teaching young learners. Previous summer school experience is welcome although not essential. It is a great environment for newly qualified teachers as there is a lot of support and many opportunities for development; a wonderful way to launch your TEFL career!

Teachers are contracted to work 27 contact teaching and/or testing and orientation hours each week, though contracted hours will not necessarily be used equally throughout your contract.

Most lessons are pre-prepared and have been carefully developed to help students develop their language and 21stCentury skills. There is however some opportunity for teachers to use their own lesson plans, allowing you to be creative but not having to plan every lesson. Lessons can be repeated daily which cuts down on planning time considerably.

One of our centres (Cirencester) also caters for 7-10 years old. If you have any experience with this age group or of teaching English through performance, please mention this in your application.

Residential Teachers will also complete 1 educational excursion per week (10 hours) to go towards payment for their full board accommodation,but WILL NOT have any pastoral dutiesi.e., no night-time duties or wake up calls.
