This is an excellent opportunity for any teacher wishing to develop their career in a supportive and friendly school. The role-holder will be required to work an average of 24 teaching hours per week, with an additional 3 hours per week dedicated to weekly training sessions, professional development and admin. As an EFL teacher, you will plan and deliver effective and engaging English lessons to the students of the school. For this role, you will be teaching students from age 9 to adult and from beginner to intermediate level, although there may be the possibility to teach other levels and ages. As some of the lessons will also be held in local state schools, this is an excellent opportunity for anyone who may want to gain experience in mainstream education too.
Reggio is a warm, friendly, coastal city just in front of Sicily with a centre that is small enough so that everything is within easy walking distance. Depending on the season, and pandemic restrictions, there is plenty to do in Reggio and its surroundings: from walking along the beaches and sailing, to skiing in the nearby mountains and eating in a cosy agriturismo.
The city is also ideally situated for visiting other places in Italy. From the port near the school, you can catch a ferry to Sicily and the Aeolian Islands). There is a train station (with a fast train to Rome) and an airport (flights to Rome and Milan). If you're looking for direct international flights, Catania or Lamezia (roughly 1 hour away) have different direct connections.
