The English Academy Fene is a private English school in Fene, North-west Spain with a small, friendly, professional team, and we are looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher to join us! If you are passionate about teaching, positive, flexible, organised, independent, and outgoing we would love to hear from you.
We work with all ages from 3 years old up to adults, from beginner to advanced learners. We love teaching creatively using songs, experiments, debates, and all manner of dynamic activities. We avoid using textbooks for lesson plans.
We are looking for a teacher to fill a full-time position.
We have classes in the afternoon (typically 16:00-21:00), which include general English and exam preparation classes. The timetable will be approximately 20 hours teaching (this could fluctuate a couple up or down) and 10 planning (also will go up or down depending). In the beginning, some of the teaching hours will be made up of training, team observation (observing senior teachers as well as senior teachers observing candidates) and feedback, and then we will transition into independent teaching.
We will also provide regular training sessions throughout the year as teacher development is a priority for our team.
Fene is a small town located close to Ferrol, both with a prestigious ship-building tradition. There is easy access to a number of incredible beaches and forests and the main city, A Coruña, is a short drive away. Our corner of Galicia is famous for its seafood, wine, folk tradition, surfing and of course the beautiful, rugged, unspoilt landscape. So, whether you prefer to spend time trying fabulous tapas in the bars of Ferrol or searching for the next wave to surf there are a whole host of activities to get involved in and friends to be made. A little further afield you have the vibrant capital city Santiago de Compostela, a University town with beautiful architecture and a fantastic nightlife. The Roman walls of Lugo, the thermal baths in Ourense and the many lively culinary music festivals all over Galicia mean you will never be at a loss for places to explore.
La Coruña (40 mins) and Santiago de Compostela (60 mins) both have airports. Public transport is economic and regular. Second-hand cars are affordable if you want a little more freedom/flexibility.
