We are actively looking for professional and responsive teachers who bring their energy, enthusiasm and expertise to the classroom, who thrive on direct student contact and the reward of learner progress.

We are looking for teachers who are interested in mid to long-term commitments – previous experience in Italy is a definite advantage.



Our busy schools work with a wide cross-section of adult and young learners at all levels in small, level-streamed groups. Around 75%  of teaching is in-school and we also work with corporate and institutional clients. Our success in a competitive market is down to two main factors, the high level of personal service and professionalism we provide throughout the school and the appeal of teaching programme we offer – Speak Your Mind. We have 26 years behind us as an alternative to conventional EFL, and an affinity with what we do is essential and the genuine willingness to learn is a key requirement for candidates.
