I’ve been authorised to bring this opportunity from the BC to your attention:

Jonathan Wix at the BC writes:

“If you’re a recently qualified EFL teacher looking for paid employment with professional support through the first years of teaching, read on!

Following the success of our ELT training scheme, launched in September 2010, we are inviting applications from recently-qualified teachers to start the scheme on January 3rd 2011. UK or Egyptian passport essential.

We have 8 places on a 6-month training and development programme giving you high quality mentoring and support for your teaching while you develop and consolidate the skills required to take on the full duties of a teacher. On successful completion, you will move up to a full-time contract equivalent to other standard British Council teachers, with additional support if needed, for a further 18 months. Trainees joining in January will undertake the Cambridge CELTYL extension (8-21 January) before embarking on a teaching timetable.

Cairo is one of the world’s great cities, and we have excellent facilities and expertise for teacher training here. We run CELTA, distance DELTA, CELTYL extension, TKT and various management and general training courses, as well as our established support programme for newly qualified teachers. For the longer term, there are excellent opportunities for teachers to develop skills in various directions.

For the training scheme you must have a Cambridge CELTA, Trinity Cert. TESOL or equivalent TEFL qualification and either a UK or Egyptian passport. You must be highly proficient in the use of English. We will give preference to teachers with some teaching experience and/or a CELTA grade A, but these are not essential. Local law stipulates you must be less than 60 years of age.”
