Further description of role and duties:

We are a specialist English language school. Our small class sizes and high standards have resulted in a high demand for our services, as well as high levels of both teacher and student satisfaction. Teachers usually work on a Tues-Sat timetable.
Our office and classrooms are equipped with a vast array of teaching resources. Our team of teachers has consciously made the decision against using smart boards in the classroom, and classrooms are instead equipped with large whiteboards and 30-inch computer screens for slideshows, videos, etc.
We have a thorough curriculum which seeks to balance the advantages of structure and pre-prepared materials with the need for flexibility and space to allow teachers to personalize classes in response to students' learning requirements.
For those who have less teaching experience, we provide training and support.
We are a small school, but growing fast, and there are long-term opportunities for those who seek them
