The CALEDONIA School of English is looking for a qualified and motivated EFL teacher for YLS and teenagers. We are a prestigious, award-winning Cambridge Premium Preparation Centre on the SW Spanish coast, and we teach YL to C2 levels in a friendly, professional school. You’ll enjoy working in modern, spacious premises, with excellent resources and cooperative students. We offer a Monday-Friday teaching timetable (max. 24 class hours p/w), on-going training and the very best working conditions.

The Caledonia School of English, a Premium Cambridge English Centre and international, award-winning School was set up in 1993. We are situated on the beautiful Costa de la Luz and widely regarded as a centre of academic excellence in this area. We are members of ACEIA.

Our school-age students are aged 6-18 (more than 90% of our annual intake) and all our classes are face-to-face in groups that never exceed 12 students.

Our library is also well stocked with a huge variety of back-up materials.

Our school, this delightful historical town and its coastal location make life here very attractive and our area enjoys the highest sunlight hours in Europe.

Applicants should be university graduates with an appropriate TEFL or teaching qualification (e.g. Trinity CertTESOL) and be committed to working in a close-knit team.
