College Teachers

College Teachers

SBC teachers are an integral part of a successful summer, and it is often their ability to engage the students both in and out of the classroom in a friendly yet professional manner that ensures students are happy throughout their stay.

Our colleges in Oxford provide high quality academic programmes, giving international students the exceptional opportunity to live and study at an esteemed University of Oxford.

Hours of Work

All College Teachers work a 12 session week, with a session being either a morning, afternoon or evening. These 12 sessions are made up of teaching one of the Morning Elective subjects (5), plus one of the Afternoon Seminars (2). They will also be involved in the excursions (2) and discussion groups revolving around the guest speakers or academic excursions (2), plus one other session which could be an evening social or graduation event (1).

Outside of scheduled sessions teachers will have an awareness of their responsibility to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the students during meals, break times, and when in the accommodation areas. All teachers will usually receive one full day off per week.
