EFL Teacher Needed For Dynamic School in Valladolid, Spain

Date posted:2017-08-29 | Writer: Idiomas Watson | Email: [email protected]

Idiomas Watson is a dynamic and growing school in the heart of Valladolid with a great combination of student ages and teacher nationalities, centering mainly on spoken English. Although we have been in business for over 20 years, our demand for English teachers is growing as more Spanish children, university students and professionals are required to speak English for their careers and find our methods of mainly spoken English highly effective.

We are looking for professional and enthusiastic native speaking teachers. The position involves teaching general English to all ages and levels and some business English. Classes include teenagers and adults in groups as well as in personalised one-to-one classes, and also teaching English to young learners. Our “target language only” policy means that English is used exclusively in class so a high level of Spanish is not essential. Although, we consider that some knowledge of Spanish, a TEFL certificate and some experience would be an advantage, greater value is given to your commitment, dedication, personal qualities and skills. Valladolid is the heart of the historic Kingdom of Castilla, the birth-place of the Spanish language, so probably the best place to improve your command of the language.


Salary is paid on an hourly basis for 20-25 hours/week, which ends up at between €800 and - €1,400 a month clear, depending on experience and the teacher’s command of Spanish. Accommodation is provided right in the city centre, just a 1-minute walk from the school.

Since consideration is given to your professional development, regular meetings are held with the Director or Head of Studies where teachers discuss best practice. New ideas are gleaned from other teachers, internet and an extensive staff library.


Applicants must be native level speakers of English. Preference will also be given to experienced, TEFL qualified teachers with E.U. passports and a good university degree. The ability to speak Spanish is useful but not essential. Familiarity with technology would also be useful.

If you are an outgoing, enthusiastic person with a love of teaching and would like to join a small team in one of Spain’s most beautiful locations we would love to hear from you.


Please send your CV by email to the address given on the job heading.

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.


In this unit i have learnt a great deal about the relationship between a student and their teacher. I have learnt how to become a good teacher and how to treat my students in various situations. I have also learnt how students can act based off of their previous learning experiences, their willingness to focus and the differences in how age can reflect their ability to learn a language.Testing is an essential tool for teachers to know what the students already know and what they need to improve on. From the beginning of the year, diagnostic tests allow teachers to mold lessons and coursework to the needs of the students. Progress tests make sure students are understanding the curriculum. Testing, when facilitated concisely, is an extremely important tool for teachers.
