Peartree Languages, Cardiff, Summer 2018

June 5, 2018

Nicky Partridge, the Centre Manager of Peartree Languages, has written regarding summer teaching jobs in Cardiff:

“We are looking for EFL tutors to join our teaching team for the 2018 Junior summer school. Peartree
Languages was opened in 2005 and this will be our 8th year of operating junior summer schools in
Cardiff. We have an excellent reputation that we are very proud of. Teachers on this programme
should be willing to take on the challenge of classes of juniors (aged 12 – 17 years old), separated
according to level and divided into classes of 10 – 17 students.

Tutors are expected to be enthusiastic, energetic and creative, while also following the scheme of work
set and liaising with the Junior Programme Coordinator and the Academic Manager.

The curriculum is largely based around task based learning, projects and incorporating aspects of the social programme into the day to day lessons, as well as teaching relevant language points (grammar, lexis etc). You should be prepared to bring ideas and care into the classroom that enable students to have a successful, enjoyable and safe learning experience.

To view our school and services, follow this link to watch our new video!”

A guest posting from Eleri Williams, Wales Cities of Sanctuary Swansea Development Worker

Swansea and Cardiff are proud to be Cities of Sanctuary and to offer a place of safety and welcome for all. However, we know that there are many, many barriers that people seeking sanctuary face to fulfilling their potential and taking their place in our community.

This is particularly true of young people who are building lives in Wales, growing up with groups of Welsh friends but who face constant uncertainty about their adulthood. Issues include access to further education, physical and mental wellbeing and opportunities to access extra-curricular activities. I am writing to invite you to join us to explore some of the issues faced by young people seeking sanctuary in Wales and to identify ways we can work together to provide some solutions.

When: Wednesday 13th June, 12:30-3:30pm

Where: Mount Pleasant Campus, Swansea, University of Wales Trinity St David

Please see attached flyer in Welsh and English for more information.



To register, please sign up at

Please do share this with your networks – everyone interested in youth provision is welcome. 

Best wishes,
