SIS Education and Travel is a leader in the provision of educational travel programmes. Accredited by the British Council, we’ve been teaching English to international students for 20 years. Our aim is to provide students with a fun, friendly and safe environment in which to develop their communication skills in English. We are looking for talented and committed EFL Teachers to work on either or residential or non residential basis in one of our 16 residential summer centres across the UK. These are in Bristol, Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, Cirencester, Edinburgh, Egham, Exeter, Guildford, Horsham, London, Oxford, Winchester and York. 

We make no secret of the fact that teaching on a junior residential school is very demanding and for less experienced teachers it can be a 'baptism of fire'. However, we provide a fully-resourced syllabus with accompanying lesson plans and Directors of Studies and Senior Teachers at every centre to provide support when needed. The first 2 days of your contract are devoted to training and induction - these are paid days.


More experienced teachers may, in fact, choose to apply for a Senior Teacher position.


We have a limited number of EFL Teacher/Activity Leader roles for those teachers who would like to be more involved in the students' activity programme. This is not a role for everyone and will be discussed at interview. These posts are available at York, Edinburgh (Jewel & Esk Valley College), Guildford and Winchester 

ISIS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The postholder’s responsibilities for safeguarding the welfare of the young students for whom they are responsible will be to adhere to our Child Protection Policy. This will include explaining any gaps in your work and education history, agreeing to a CRB Enhanced Disclosure and signing a Suitability to Work with Children Declaration where you will be asked to state any criminal convictions.

All applicants must be eligible to work in the UK. We do not sponsor work permit visa applications.

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.


Useful unit providing many links to online resources. Depending on the country and the school, particular online resources would be directed by the ‘master in-change’ therefore having more local content or specific cultural significances. In teaching business language or my personal interest, First Aid to speakers of a foreign language, other online and published material will be helpful.From Unit 4 I have learned present tenses such as Present Simple, Present Continuous, Present Perfect and Present Perfect Continuous. I have learned of usage of these tenses, construction of affirmative, negative and question forms of sentences. I have observed typical student's errors and mistakes and have recognized some of teaching ideas whereby I can engage students into grammatical activities.
