Employment teaching English in Poland
Date posted:2005-05-16 | Writer: INTENSITY School of English | Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidates should possess a BA degree in English (or a related field) and/or a TEFL/TESOL/CELTA certificate. Of course it helps to have teaching experience, but it is not essential. What's more important is that you are a confident, dynamic, sociable, creative and resourceful individual.
Why teach abroad?
Teaching abroad is a unique way to travel and make money at the same time. And not travelling in the shallow, tour group, "see-it-all-as-quickly-as-possible" sort of way. Travelling in the true sense of the word: living in a completely different country, immersing yourself in a new culture and language and building lasting friendships with inhabitants of that country.
Why choose Poland?
Strategically located in the heart of Central Europe, Poland is a country of rich history, fascinating culture and untouched natural beauty. It has undergone rapid change in the last decade and a half, and is now enjoying the beginning of a new era as a member of the European Union. It is an exciting time to be here and experience first-hand Poland's future unfolding. Polish hospitality is world-renowned - the Poles are as friendly as they are proud: always more than happy to show off their country to foreigners. And rightly proud they are - there's much to see and do.
Why choose INTENSITY?
Our school is located in the picturesque city of Rybnik in the Silesian province of southern Poland. Our location serves as the perfect hub from which you can base your travels. Famous capital cities such as Warsaw, Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava are easily accessible and can be reached within about 4-5 hours. If you're interested in skiing or hiking, the ski resorts in the Beskidy mountains are only 45 minutes away! And of course Krakow, Poland's cultural capital, can be reached in an hour and a half. Public transport in Poland is reliable and relatively inexpensive.
INTENSITY is one of only a handful of schools in Poland owned and operated by native speakers of English and employing only native speakers of English. This means that there is a unique relationship between the management of the school and its teachers of openness, respect and complete understanding - we are able to empathize with our teachers. Our policy of "happy teachers produce excellent lessons" is one that has made our school a success. Despite being relatively new, we are the second largest English school in Rybnik, and are still growing rapidly.
The INTENSITY School of English is part of the Callan Method Organization based in London. The Callan Method is a direct method based on conversation, and stimulates students to speak. After some practice, this method requires very little or even no lesson preparation from the teacher. We teach mainly adult students who need English for their professional and personal use. The relaxed and lively classroom atmosphere that we create is highly appreciated by our students and encourages communication.
Every year, we assemble the best possible team of teachers, and ensure that our students are exposed to a diverse range of talents and accents, whether they may be American, British, Canadian, Australian or South African. Our team is always well-balanced, with each teacher bringing his or her own unique character to the mix. The majority of our teachers decide to extend their contracts with us and most of the recruiting we do is to facilitate growth.
- Outstandingly competitive rates of pay
The salary we offer is more than enough to live comfortably in Poland (where the cost of living is much cheaper than in Western countries) and of course to travel as you wish and enjoy Polish shops and nightlife.
- Assistance with finding accommodation
We provide full assistance in finding accommodation which suits you (single or shared apartments, with or without satellite TV etc., as you prefer)
- Guaranteed minimum weekly workload
- Full assistance in obtaining visas and work permits
- Free in-house teacher training package (both on-arrival and ongoing)
