Our mission: to help our students gain the skills they need to integrate into the international environment - whether their goals are work, study or play! We offer a mix of General English, ESP and Exam Preparation Courses, working closely with the St Petersburg IELTS Test Centre and State University Masters Degree Program. We are serious about what we do - but we have fun doing it!
Details of Position
Our teachers are a diverse group from around the world, including those with decades of experience and others just starting their teaching career. We learn from each other and our policy is to trust our teachers' expertise and to place them at the heart of what we do.

As part of the Windsor family of schools we can also offer the possibility to work in our sister schools located in Vladimir and Moscow.
