Are you a dynamic & passionate EFL teacher? Can you provide a fun and unique learning experience for students from across the globe? Kingswood, one of the leading providers of residential adventure holidays with English provision in the UK, have an exciting opportunity in Colomendy, North Wales teaching English to International Students aged 7-17 years. Here at Kingwood we ensure that our students enjoy the best possible cultural experience, and are linguistically prepared for all activities and excursions in the UK. We tailor make programmes so each group can achieve Kingswood learning outcomes alongside their English lessons of up to 15 hours per week. NB This is a teaching role with no activities/pastoral duties.

Using your TEFL skills, experience and varied teaching methods you will be able to maximise student progress in an adventurous, fun filled environment whilst inspiring students to realise their full potential.

Our Colomendy centre is located in a 130 acre site in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Deep in the valley surrounded by scenic hills and woodland, brimming with wildlife and with views of Moel Famau. Loggerheads Country Park is opposite the centre and there are plenty of opportunities to venture off-centre to explore the hills and woodland. Set in the beautiful countryside of North Wales just off the A55, and just an hour away from Liverpool.

Our recently refreshed party leader bedrooms are complete with furnishings, tea and coffee making facilities and a radio-alarm. There is also a large party leader lounge, equipped with internet enabled computers, hot drink making facilities and comfy sofas to warm up after a chilly day in the woods and enjoy the beautiful view of Moel Famau in the distance and the surrounding area. Group leaders also have the opportunity to join a local art group on Thursday mornings to test their painting or drawing skills in our meeting room.

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.


Unit 7 talks about the teaching of vocabulary, grammer and function in the English class and gives me some clue about what and how to teach upon each language point. Besides, it connects well with the former units of ESA methodology and techniques and the present and past tenses. It enables me to recall and practice comprehensively with what I have learned in the ITTT on-line courses.In this unit we learned how to define the english level of our students, what are the basic skills students have in each level and how to create a good syllabus (and what different kinds of syllabuses are there). We learned about tests - how to use tests in our classroom and what different kinds of assessment tests and examinations there are. Also, we learned about course evaluation.
