More About What We're Looking For
Native level .. we consider all applications and indeed over the years have enjoyed working with many people from many different places, backgrounds and cultures. For these roles your accent, intonation, grammar, fluency, range of vocab etc needs to be a native level i.e. a native would be hard pushed to realise English wasn't your first language. We have had team members who have this level i.e. who weren't raised in an anglo setting, so it is possible.
We have other roles (e.g. teaching assistant positions) that are open to those that don't have such a fluent level.
Proven professional experience working with and teaching children,
Excellent native level English (see above), French a plus.
Ability to remain flexible, positive and fun while maintaining job performance (our team want to be able to count on you!)

Teaching diplomas and TEFL CELTA are an advantage as they show you understand how to teach and what to teach however we have a lot of these diplomas in our team. We are also looking for creative, artistic, performer type profiles who can bring a fun , interactive element to our timetable. So don't let a diploma hold you back as we will provide on the job training and shadowing as part of our own unique method .
