Teach English in France this summer 2013 (July – August)

There are vacancies for qualified CELTA/Trinity English language teachers to teach for 6 to 8 weeks in Eastern & Western France. This is to join already existing teachers who have done this project before.
We have been running these programmes for 9 years.

Eastern France – Serre Chevalier a mountain resort near the Italian border. Activities include rock climbing, white water rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, canyoning etc.
This resort and the activities offered to the students suits a certain type of teacher. The students are between 14 – 17 years old.

Western France – on the island of Ile d’Oleron off La Rochelle. Activities include horse riding, mountain biking, swimming, beach sailing etc. The students are between 12 – 15 years old.

The work involves a 5/6 day week with 3 hours per day lesson time with a maximum of 20 hours per week. There is a short unpaid break towards the end of July before the restart in August and teachers may remain on campus or use this period to travel. The students are French and it takes place in a summer camp context. Involvement with after lesson activities is required, however, our teachers will not be required as organisers but as participants. The centre has specialised staff to run the after lesson activities.
