Idiomaster is a professional and dynamic language school with an established reputation. It is a Trinity College London examination centre and Cambridge ESOL Examination Preparation Centre. It is affiliated to ACEIA – the private language schools association in Andalucia – whose purpose is to guarantee a quality private language education, with a commitment to professionalism and honesty. It is also affiliated to FECEI, the Spanish Federation of language schools.
We have two schools. The first opened in Lucena in 1989 and the second in Montilla in 1990; there are approximately 700 students between the two schools. Young learners and teens make up about two thirds of the total, the rest are adults from beginners up to proficiency. Class sizes are small, generally no more than ten students, to ensure the best possible learning environment. Many learners continue to study at our academy for a decade or more and we strive to help students achieve the very highest levels of language learning on a consistent basis.
We also also offer baby English, one-to-one private classes, and some off-site business and technical English to companies in the area.
What we’re looking for:
Idiomaster want passionate, dedicated, and reliable teachers who are invested in their students’ success. We work primarily with younger learners and teenagers and we look for teachers who enjoy the challenges and rewards of working with these age groups.
We’re proud of our school’s commitment to professional development and seek out engaged, enthusiastic teachers who are equally keen to improve their skills.
In addition to this, we require that our teachers:
- be proficient English speakers (C2).
- be eligible to work in Spain.
- have a university degree and Cambridge CELTA/Trinity College TESOL qualification or equivalent. (We also consider applications from teachers with a teacher training qualification and some teaching experience.)
- preferably have a minimum of 1 years’ teaching experience.
- preferably have some experience of working with younger learners and/or a genuine interest in doing so.
Although not strictly necessary, a working knowledge of Spanish, driving licence, and experience of Trinity or Cambridge exams is always a plus.
The majority of the classes take place between the hours of 4.00 and 10.00 in the evening, although there are a few morning classes. The contract is exclusive, runs from mid-September to the end of June, and is for 25 contact hours (34 hour full-time contract).
Any notice period for both parties will be one working month. Contracts are drawn up according to Spanish employment law for the private teaching sector.
On arrival we give full assistance in finding accommodation, obtaining your residence card and social security number, setting up a bank account and registering with a doctor.
