Founded in 1992 by its current owner, Direct English is a medium-sized academy with 7 classrooms which sees itself as a serious language school with a big heart. Our students are very faithful and keep coming back year after year and we´re even beginning to receive the children of our first students.  Children start as early 4 years old and by the time they are 12 most are already able to converse in English. We also have classes for adults many of whom we prepare to take Cambridge exams.
Torrelavega 

A town of some 60.000 inhabitants, Torrelavega is at the heart of the region of Cantabria, just 10 km from the coast and beautiful beaches, some renowned for their surfing. The Picos De Europa mountain range is just one hour away as is the ski resort of Alto Campo. Santander airport with direct flights to London and many other national and European destinations is just 25 km away. The city of Santander is just half an hour´s train ride away.
Our teachers 

We have excellent qualified staff with an average of over 10 years´ experience who are always more than willing to give advice and support to teachers who are new to us. Occasional staff meetings where methodology is discussed take place in the mornings. Our newer teachers find they progress quickly and enjoy being able to explore their own techniques in the classroom within a not excessively strict methodological framework.  Direct English seeks an experienced  teacher with an ability to teach stimulating classes to all age groups and abilities. The installations are spacious and modern and a far cry from the cramped conditions of many inner city establishments. We are looking for someone who will know how to connect both with their students in the classroom and with their colleagues in the staffroom. Many students prepare for Cambridge exams both at junior level with Young Learners and at adult level with the whole suite of exams ( KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE).  There is a maximum of 25 hour contact hours per week. Teachers teach in the evenings with an earliest start time of 15.50 and latest finishing time 21.30 (19.30 on Fridays). There is occasionally optional morning work.
Contract dates from 25th September 2017 until 24th June 2018 , extendible subject to agreement .Holidays taken according to Cantabrian school calendar. (  In the 2016-2017 academic year this meant 15 days at Christmas, 6 days for Carnival, 10 days at Easter, plus fiestas).  Gross salary 1440-1648€ per month depending on relevant experience.
