We are a new branch of English First and its first outside of Istanbul
(which is about 2 hours away). We teach a full complement of English
courses, including General English, Business English, TOEFL/IELTS and
English for Special Purposes. In the near future, we plan to expand our
curriculum to include English for Young Learners. A summer camp of
Intensive English is also being planned.
Currently, the teaching staff is small. There are three teachers here
and a small and very capable support staff. We teach Mondays through
Saturdays, but our current teacher's contract provides for two days off per
week. Wherever possible, we try to schedule consecutive days off. Classes
currently start at 8:30 a.m. and evening classes end at 9:15 pm. Again,
wherever possible, we try to schedule to try to avoid "split shifts",
though this is not always possible.
EF Bursa offers a basic salary of approximately 1600 new Turkish lira
for 100 hours of instruction per month. Overtime is paid for any hours
above that. Most classes are currently in-house, though some are located
around Bursa which has a good transport system.
EF Bursa provides subsidized housing for teachers so that individual
teacher costs do not exceed 200 YTL per month inclusive. There are also
holidays and vacation days. Airfare is reimbursed at contract end.
Contract duration is usually 12 months.
