Date posted:2006-10-02 | Writer: Canterbury School | Email: [email protected]

Canterbury School is a private language centre based in Schio, a town in the North East of Italy. We are looking for a motivated, confident, enthusiastic, and lively English native teacher to teach one to one classes and groups at all ages and all levels. Celta/Tefl/Tesol Certificate is desirable. Teachers need to have a valid EU passport.
Our school is wonderfully located. It is very close to cities like Vicenza, Verona and above all Venice. So, if you like teaching English as a second language, but you also love art, history, culture, and beauty, that's the perfect place for you because all these cities and many other fascinating sites are easily accessible and can be reached within one hour. If you love nature and sports, our charming mountains are near at hand and if you are fond of water there you have the Adriatic sea and Garda lake!
We offer full time legal contract to the end of June 2007 with a guaranteed minimum weekly workload. The salary will be between 1000 and 1200 Euros gross a month for 25 weekly work hours. Health insurance and retirement found is paid by us. The amount is enough to live comfortably in Italy, to pay the accomodation bills, to travel as you wish, to enjoy the Italian way of life. We provide the teacher with a private accommodation which is near the school; the school pays the rent but the teacher has to pay the bills with his/her salary (they are higher in winter and lower in summer because of heating, on average 120 Euros per month).
The minimum workload will be 25 hours a week and the lessons could be in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening (Monday to Friday). We usually try to concentrate them as much as possible so that when teachers come to school they work for some hours, not for just one lesson.
All teachers have free access to the teacher's resource library, computers and free in-house teacher training package (both on-arrival and ongoing).
In our school there is a nice atmosphere and a friendly working environment in a dynamic team. This position could be suitable for a person who wants to try a new exciting experience and who would like to have the opportunity to live the Italian life and culture.

So, if you think you are a responsible, patient, enthusiastic, and creative person who feels like living this new experience in our great country, e-mail your resume and cover letter by the 1st October and be ready to come here because our school needs to meet all the applicants for an interview on site.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This unit is about evaluation and testing. I learned about different tests and what to use them for. Placement Tests: To enable teachers to put students in the correct class according to their language skill. Progress Tests: To monitor students progress during the course. Diagnostic Tests: Given at the start at the course to see what students already know. Practice Tests: given in preparation for external exams.I have learned the many stages of lessons. The three parts to ESA lesson planning were well explained and I know feel confident that I could in these different ways. I also learned about when it is best to correct students. While it is important for then to be repeating the correct information, it is up to the teacher not to upset them through corrections. This lesson will help when me when I begin to teach overseas.
