Teach First Programme 2017

February 28, 2017

Teach First  is an educational charity that seeks to combat educational inequality in the UK. The main way they do this is to run a two-year Leadership Development Programme  – a paid route into teaching, where you work full time in a partner school, whilst being mentored and coached by the programme to achieve a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE). This leads to full UK “Qualified teacher status” QTS.

This year, Teach First are working directly with IATEFL, as the experiences that the training programme has with EFL trained teachers is very positive.  They say that:

“The skills and experience EFL teachers can bring to the programme mean that they are able to settle in to the classroom very quickly and have a huge impact from the outset, as well as gaining UK QTS and developing leadership skills which will allow them progress into managerial roles quickly…

Applications for Teach First are open for 2017 now, and there is a seminar on 2nd March 2017 exclusively for TEFL teachers – sign up is via this Eventbrite link

To qualify you need to have:

  •  a 2.1 or higher
  • the right to work in the UK for the entire duration of the programme (2 years)
  • sponsorship for overseas applicants is not available

January 20, 2017

Noel Harmsworth, the Academic Manager, EF Language Travel, has written to let us know about the opportunities available with EF Malta for summer 2017. In the summer of 2016, two Swansea CELTA graduates had good involvement with EF Malta, and returned with valuable in-class experience, having each made a very favourable impression.

Noel writes that:

“As the biggest language school on the island, EF Education First Malta is offering 3 to 10 week contracts during parts/all of June, July and August 2017 to cert.TESOL-qualified EFL teachers. This opportunity includes the provision of self-catering accommodation on top of the salary.

Anyone interested can apply by sending his/her recent CV to Preference is given to applicants who hold an EU passport and are at least 21 years of age by July 2017.

Teachers who took up this opportunity last summer really enjoyed it. Many are now making the most of the experience they have gained while teaching with EF or with other schools in different parts of the world. Some others will be fulfilling a more senior role with EF in Malta or the UK come summer 2017.”


Work placements at Szent Laszlo school, Hungary. EU Erasmus Plus scheme

January 18, 2017

This guest blog is written by Phillip Davies, of Languages Training & Development, Oxford:

“We would like to bring to your attention an opportunity for a supervised work placement with our organisation. We would be grateful if you could promote this among the recent graduates from your initial Certificate courses for teachers of English.

Languages Training & Development is a provider of ESOL to the Skills Funding Agency and offers the Trinity Certificate and Diploma in TESOL as well as the Diploma in Education. Within our portfolio, we also have a project, funded through the EU, to provide short (2-week) work placements at our partners Szent Laszlo school in Hungary where we assist the local teachers of English. This project is now in its third year.

Beneficiaries of this programme have been CELTA / Cert TESOL graduates from a number of organisations including St. Giles, International House, LTC Woking, Studio Cambridge, Manchester Academy and the English Centre Edinburgh, as well as our own trainees.

The work placement is supported in that each cohort of new teachers is accompanied by our staff, who assist in lesson preparation and observe lessons to give developmental feedback. New teachers benefit from this as well as the opportunity to teach young people at primary and secondary level within a monolingual environment in a state school. It is thus an ideal opportunity to complement experience gained on initial training.

The EU’s Erasmus Plus scheme covers travel to Hungary and accommodation in the school’s hall of residence and there is a small bursary (currently £132) payable after return.

Placements for early 2017 are planned for:

11 – 26 February

18 March – 2 April

Those interested should contact (tel. 01993 708637 after 2 pm daily) with a brief email outlining their interest and a CV. A Skype discussion will then be set up.

The Erasmus Plus scheme is available to all citizens of the EU plus a number of non-EU partner countries. There are no age restrictions. Previous attendance on an Erasmus programme does not normally disqualify applicants from this project.

Please find attached a flyer and if you wish to discuss this opportunity further please contact us.
