Small, friendly, British Council accredited school


ABC School of English is looking for TEFL qualified teachers to join our team.

The position is to teach English as a foreign language using the Callan Method (a fun, fast direct method, based on speaking). The Method was established in the 1960s and is very popular among students. Full training will be provided. Full time and part time positions available, 7, 50 minute lessons per day from 08.30 to 16.20 (full time), or 4, 50 minute lesson per day from 08.30 to 12.20 (part time).

Location: Covent Garden, London

Applicants must be prepared to undergo an in-house training course. The training will last for three to five days, with paid employment starting immediately after, for successful applicants.

Training will be between 21st and 25th October 19.

The training will involve watching experienced Callan Method teachers and teaching practice (among fellow trainees, not with actual students). Candidates must attend the full training course. We are looking to train now, with immediate start after successful training.

Acceptance on the training course does NOT guarantee a job at the end.

Paid employment for successful trainees will commence immediately after training.

Please send covering letter and full CV including two referees. At least one reference will be acquired prior to employment. Please also send a scan of your TEFL certificate as we can only accept recognised qualifications.

Teachers already trained to teach with the Callan Method very welcome.

Rate per hour: £12

Please note:
references will be followed up
all gaps in CVs must be explained satisfactorily
proof of identity and (where applicable) qualifications will be required
reference requests will ask specifically whether there is any reason that they should not be engaged in situations where they have responsibility for, or substantial access to, persons under 18

We will contact you if we would like you to attend an interview. If you do not hear from us within a week of submitting your application, please assume you have not been successful on this occasion.
