Full-time EFL Teacher Needed in Kassel, Germany
Date posted:2012-02-02 | Writer: Finer English | Email: email@example.com
An established, thriving language school in central Germany is seeking a full-time EFL teacher to teach small groups of business professionals according to their individual learning needs. Finer English is an established, thriving language school started by Joe Finer in 1998. The school's success is built on a structured approach to teaching, centered on language audits to determine not only the students' competence in English but also the specific work activities for which English is necessary. All students are taught according to their individual learning needs. Focusing primarily on companies in Kassel, Germany, the school's teaching team now numbers 25, including teachers for six languages besides English.
Finer English is a virtual school - we have no school building and no staff-room where teachers can swap ideas at lunch-time. Lessons are taught on our clients' premises - all of which are reachable by public transport from Kassel city centre.
Because teachers do not meet daily, regular communication by telephone and e-mail is essential. Teacher training sessions are held about every two months to develop teaching skills, exchange ideas and reinforce the co-operative team spirit.
Teaching according to each student's specific business needs means we use no set text books unless specifically requested. Teaching materials appropriate to the needs of each individual student are provided by Finer English.
Applicants should be native speakers of English and have relevant teaching experience.
A formal EFL qualification, such as TESOL or TEFL is preferable.
Personality is important. We are seeking dynamic, energetic, open-minded teachers with a passion for both teaching and the English language.
Applicants should also have a good knowledge of world events and business terminology.
Finally, candidates should also be excited both to learn new things and continually improve themselves as teachers.
The advertised vacancy is a freelance position. Starting rates are commensurate with the teacher's experience.
Finer English is pleased to offer teacher support and has a member of staff for that purpose. We will gladly assist the successful applicant with the red tape process and help find suitable housing.
Please send your CV and a recent photo to Peter Schimunek (Assistant Director of Studies) at the address given on the job heading to start your application process.
