English schools in Europe
Italy - Schio (Vicenza)
School:Canterbury School <[email protected]>
Canterbury School is a private language centre based in Schio, a town in the North East of Italy. We are looking for a motivated, confident, enthusiastic, and lively English native teacher to teach one to one classes and groups at all ages and all levels. Celta/Tefl/Tesol Certificate is required. Teachers need to have a valid EU passport and a valid driving licence.
Our school is wonderfully located. It is very close to cities like Vicenza, Verona and above all Venice. So, if you like teaching English as a second language, but you also love art, history, culture, and beauty, that’s the perfect place for you because all these cities and many other fascinating sites are easily accessible and can be reached within one hour. If you love nature and sports, our charming mountains are near at hand and if you are fond of water… there you have the Adriatic sea and Garda lake!
We offer full time legal contract to the end of June 2008 with a guaranteed minimum weekly workload. Teachers are paid 10 € net per hour (which is 18 € with VAT), so the salary is usually between 1000 € and 1200€ . Health insurance and retirement found is paid by us. The amount is enough to live comfortably in Italy, to pay the accomodation bills, to travel as you wish, to enjoy the Italian way of life. We provide the teacher with a private accomodation which is near the school; the school pays the rent but the teacher has to pay the bills with his/her salary (they are higher in winter and lower in summer because of heating, on average 150 € every 2 months).
The usual workload will be about 25 hours a week and the lessons could be in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening (Monday to Friday and sometimes Saturday mornings). We usually try to concentrate them as much as possible so that when teachers come to school they work for some hours, not for just one lesson.
All teachers have free access to the teacher’s resource library, computers and free in-house teacher training package (both on-arrival and ongoing).
In our school there is a nice atmosphere and a friendly working environment in a dynamic team. This position could be suitable for a person who wants to try a new exciting experience and who would like to have the opportunity to live the Italian life and culture.
