International ESL Jobs
Date: 20 February 2017
Lingue Senza Frontiere Srl is an Italian company that teaches English through Theatre In Education (T.I.E.) and organises English Summer Camps throughout Italy from early June to September. Our team has been working with hundreds of schools and thousands of participants over the years.
We have solid experience in the complex organisation and the concrete realisation of an English Summer Camp.
We are recruiting for our June-July and early August-late September summer camp season.
You may wish to have a look at our website (www.linguesenzafrontiere.it) to discover more about us.
Our summer camps generally run for two weeks each.
How many weeks you do depends on both your availability and on the number of camps that we can offer.
Once arrived in Italy, you will follow a Training lasting 1 week in a beautiful resort setting by the sea. This Training is a professional educational update for teachers which enable them both to grow up under a professional point of view and at the same time to learn our educational programme, as well as the style and the philosophy of our Company and of the Italian culture.
That's why the Training is held by professional Trainers who have previously worked in our Company for a long time.
After the Training, at the end of the week, the Tutor will receive the communication of his/her Summer Camp destination and will go directly to the Summer Camp location.
Our Summer Camps are held in Italian primary and middle schools, they usually run from 8h30/9h00am to 4/4h30pm.
The children are aged 6 – 14. Each tutor has his/her own class of 12/15 children of a similar age group.
Our approach to language teaching is to use as many games, songs and activities as possible. The focus of teaching is on cultivating enthusiasm for the English language, sharing culture and above all making sure the students have fun.
Knowledge of Italian is not required but can be useful. TEFL certification is not obligatory as long as you have experience working with children and are eager to learn some new skills.
You will have no expenses to pay once you arrive here (food and lodgings are always included) except for your personal expenses.
Training is unpaid, but as already mentioned above, food and accommodation will be always provided.
Accommodation at the Summer Camp is mostly with Italian host families but it can also be in b&b or in apartments.
We do not cover your transport to and from Italy, however we do cover your transfers from Training location to your Summer Camp destination.
The pay rate for camps is of: 450 Euros per each two week camp and so on if you decide to do more Summer Camps.
Please note that all applicants must be native English speakers and hold a current valid EU passport to work with LSF.
If you are interested, please send your CV to: [email protected].
This is a unique opportunity to live Italy as an Italian, you will be fully immersed in Italy’s wonderful lifestyle, develop a great relationship with your students and with host families and make some great new friends.
