Summer Study Teachers

Summer Study Teachers

The Summer Study course caters for International students who test at Upper Intermediate and Advanced level of English, and covers subjects including History, Geography, Creative Writing, Science and British Culture.

Teachers will deliver 15 hours teaching per week to multinational students. Teachers will also be involved in the activity and excursion programme, residential duties, and all tasks associated with Summer School.

Hours of Work

All teachers work a 13 session week, with a session being either a morning, afternoon or evening. Of these 13 sessions, 5 are spent in the classroom, while the other 8 are spent helping with the activities programme or on excursions. In addition to this are pastoral duties, which involve working with our House Parents to ensure the safety and well-being of the students during meals, in break times, in the boarding houses and at night. This breakdown means that the majority of sessions will be out of the classroom, so it is important teaching staff are enthusiastic and ready to actively engage in all aspects of the summer school programme. All teachers will usually receive at least one full day off per week.
