The Cultural English Centre is a well-known and successful English language academy located in Linares, Jaen. It was founded in 1987 by Sonia Lasaga, and since then has earned itself a healthy reputation for the quality of its language services among the inhabitants of the town. The school is a member of the Association of Language Schools in Andalusia (ACEIA).

The academy offers classes to students from the age of 3 to adults and focuses on preparing students for Cambridge English Assessment exams (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE).

Facilities

All classrooms are equipped with computers with Internet connection as well as projectors and eBeam interactive whiteboards. All our classrooms have air conditioning and central heating. The school recently expanded to include a computer room, which is used for class projects, exam practice and other activities.

The staff room is well stocked with supplementary books, dictionaries, files of additional material, visuals, games, etc. which are used in the day-to-day planning of lessons. There is also a library of EFL literature including resource and theory books.

The academy also has a small but popular library of books that students can borrow in order to complement their studies and help promote the use of the English language for cultural means and enjoyment outside the classroom.

Teacher Training

At The Cultural English Centre we believe that teacher development is the key to a rewarding and interesting professional life. We hold weekly workshops on a wide range of ELT-related matters and also give our teachers the opportunity to attend a number of EFL-related conferences such as the annual ACEIA conference which takes place in Seville every November, the ACEIA Jaén conference in February and TESOL Spain in March.

Qualifications

We are looking for teachers with a CELTA or Trinity CertTESOL (or equivalent), as well as at least two years’ experience, preferably working with young learners and Cambridge exam preparation classes.

Ability to speak Spanish is an advantage, as there is some amount of contact with students’ parents (although help is provided to teachers who do not speak Spanish).

 

Conditions

We are currently recruiting for a full-time teacher to start as soon as possible.

Gross salary for a full-time teacher is €1500.

Most teaching is in afternoon-evening (4:00 to 9:30), although some morning hours are also required.
