Description of school:
We are located in Ceuta (Spanish enclave), on the northern coast of Morocco. However, Moroccan border is currently closed; so the only way to come and go from Ceuta is a 45 min ferry to Algeciras. Our premises have been in operation since 2007 in a residential area, a walk away from the town centre; although, it is run by a 30-year-experienced British teacher.
At present, we have over 300 students, with a maximum of 15 per class, who come 4 hours a week. Being as young as 4 and up to 18 years old, our students usually take the Cambridge Assessment English exams in their teens from Intermediate to Advanced levels. We set up each group following two criteria: age and level of the student, guaranteeing the homogeneity of each group.
Each teacher has their own classroom fully equipped with a smartboard, computer and internet access. Besides, they have access to our own method with teaching materials… as we don’t follow any course books. Our aim is not to replicate the typical classroom environment.
Our Director of Studies holds a weekly staff meeting as we strongly believe in team work. Moreover, it is appreciated, the attendance of new teachers to pre-course induction sessions. We say this because, when possible, new teachers are welcome to come a couple of weeks in June as training (paying conditions would be discussed); and if it wouldn’t be possible, the working contract would start 15th August getting in contact with our environment and method but without students till the 1st September.
Full time contract (34 hrs. a week).
We offer a salary according to national pay agreements with two extra-pays in December and June; as well as full national health and social security cover.
Currently, contracts are 20 teaching hours per week, the remaining contract hours being dedicated to staff meeting, lesson planning, correction of written exercises, meeting parents…during the school year (starting the second half of August – till end of June).
There are two weeks’ paid holiday at Christmas and two weeks for Spring Break, as well as any local and national holiday.
We don’t mind assisting with seeking accommodation; however, it is something without our reach. However, for non-locals we pay a plus of 200e/month for accommodation.
