Job Description: 

Post open only to those with the right to work in the EU.

Overall aim: As an  EFL TEACHER (YOUNG LEARNERS) you will plan and deliver effective English lessons to a range of students (mainly aged between 6 and 15, although there may be some preschool classes) both on the school premises and in local state schools.  Average teaching hours per week are 24 hours and an additional three hours per week are dedicated to professional development and meetings.

Working with us provides the opportunity to:

  • Gain experience with a variety of class types and sizes (depending on experience and preferences).
  • Work in a friendly but professional environment where there is a variety of class types and ages to help you broaden your experience.
  • Learn from friendly, motivated peers (there is a full-time teaching staff of 19, including Senior Teachers, a Young Learner Coordinator, and a Director of Studies), whose experience is wide and varied and who all believe in the school's ethos of putting the learner at the centre of everything we do.
  • Develop through regular observations, appraisals, and professional development sessions. (On our Facebook page you can find details of our most recent training sessions with leading names in ELT such as Adrian Underhill and Jon Hird and we were also delighted to be the hosts of the IHYL Conference March 2018) 
  • Access a wealth of resources, including Interactive Whiteboards, designated YL rooms, Computer rooms, data projectors, and an up-to-date and well-stocked library.  Laptops and audio equipment is also loaned to each teacher for the duration of the contract.
  • Settle into the school and the city by attending a fully-paid induction period and free, weekly Italian lessons (held on the school premises with a qualified teacher)
  • Possibility to attend the IH Certificate in teaching Young Learners and Teenagers in the first two weeks of September 2018 at our school (course fees fully covered by the school) and, for teachers whose experience matches the requirements of Cambridge English Language Assessment, the possibility to be trained as a Speaking Examiner for Cambridge exams.

Depending on the successful applicant's experience, the school will offer either a fully-subsidised DELTA Module 3 (subject to your application being accepted by the DELTA provider) or one of the IH World online training courses.

As some of the teaching involves external (off-site) courses, this role does require a certain amount of flexibility and cultural sensitivity, so the ability to deal with changes and diversity in a positive manner is essential for this role. Where offsite courses are not within reasonable walking distance (10 mins) of the school, teachers are accompanied from,and back to, school by car.  Travelling time is counted as working hours.

Reggio is right on the “toe” of Italy, just across from Sicily, and its museum is home to the world-famous “Bronzi di Riace” – two full-size, Greek, bronze statues dating back to 460 BC.  Reggio has a Mediterranean climate and the temperature rarely drops below 10 degrees.  With its proximity to the Aspromonte mountain range, and in particular Gambarie, you can easily visit the mountains and the sea in the same day.  Like most places in Italy, the food is great and the restaurants in Calabria are especially renowned for their abundant portions and never-ending antipasti!
