We are looking for two teachers to start work in September or October. Applications open until end of August. We would prefer to hire two individuals rather than a couple.
We're a franchise cram school striving to both improve and maintain our environment of creativity, fun and modern educational practices. We are a franchise of Shane English School and firmly believe in its ideals of professionalism, English immersion and learning through play and yet we are also quite unique; our school has a football pitch, a 4-storey climbing wall, an X-box games room, a full size table football and we make sure all of our students have a chance to pursue whatever their interested in, relax and have some fun. We have been open for 11 years, but in September 2016 we begun a new stage in our development and would love to find someone interested in helping us continue moving forward, while also developing their own teaching skills.
We will hire the best candidate available, but we are trying to build a varied team of gender, ethnicity, nationality and culture. We really love receiving video demos.
