International House Riga is looking for an enthusiastic and experienced teacher who is interested in Academic Management and Teacher Training.
The role of Senior Teacher combines teaching with management responsibilities such as exams, young learners, social activities and technology. There are also opportunties to give training seminars, train as a trainer for one of the many courses offered by IH and attend conferences and training days.
A Senior Teacher teaches up to 108 academic hours per month and is also available for 12-15 hours of management duties over the same period.
We provide group (up to 12 students) and individual lessons for learners of all ages. Whilst the majority of our students are young learners (3 to 18 years old), we do have a number of adult classes.
Where possible we try to arrange teacher timetables according to teacher strengths and preferences and avoiding split shifts.
We also offer a number of specialist programmes such as 'Professional English' for adults and IELTS preparation.
The school is open six days a week (09:00 - 21:00 Mon-Fri, 10:00 - 16:00 Sat). Teachers have two full days off per week (Sunday plus one week day).
IH Riga provides academic support in the form of weekly training seminars (compulsory for full-time teachers) and both formal and informal observations. We are also able to provide a number of IH courses face-to-face and assist financially with IH online courses.
