Qualifications: Successful applicants will have a B.A. + CELTA or equivalent or an M.A. in a relevant field and classroom teaching experience.  A Bachelor’s degree is a minimum requirement for teaching at university level in Mexico, so we cannot consider applicants who do not have a Bachelor’s degree.  Specific TESL/TEFL training is also a requirement of the university’s Academic
Council.  Although it is not a requirement, ability in Spanish or another foreign language would be a definite asset.

Aside from providing quality instruction to students, the department focuses on both professional and community development and we are looking for motivated, self-starters who are willing to participate in projects outside of classes.

Location:  University/college campus in Huajuapan de Leon, a city of about 80,000 people situated in the beautiful state of Oaxaca.
Wage: Take home pay is approximately $13,500 – 16,000 MXN per month, depending on qualifications and experience, which is a very competitive local salary.  Teachers also receive benefits including healthcare, savings plan, bonuses and 5 weeks paid vacation.  Please note that all travel to the university, housing expenses and visa fees have to be paid for by the teacher.  The university does not pay for travel expenses, housing or visa applications (initial or renewals).

Supported 2-week work experience placement for newly qualified English Teachers – Hungary

June 12, 2017

This guest blog is by David Gorbutt, the Director of Languages Training & Development:

“We would like to bring to your attention an opportunity for a two-week work experience placement in Hungary, funded through the EU’s Erasmus Plus programme.

The programme is now entering its fourth year and we have received a large number of newly qualified CELTA and Cert TESOL teachers onto it. These have come from a wide variety of providers both in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. Programmes are organised in cohorts of around ten participants.

Flights to Hungary and accommodation while there is provided through the Erasmus scheme, which is open to all EU nationals as well as several other participating countries.

The participant will deliver a series of lessons to groups in a state secondary or primary school as well as participate in some one to one teaching. Design of lessons is guided by the local Hungarian teacher of English as well as our accompanying staff, who are experienced teacher trainers for both the Certificate and Diploma. The participants’ lessons are watched to give developmental feedback.

Previous participants have found this an excellent short term opportunity to get a taste of living abroad working in the state sector. There is time within the programme for some sightseeing and to apply for longer-term positions. We are happy to accept applications from those still working towards their certificate.

Dates for the remainder of 2017 are included in the Flyer for Cert Providers May 2017  attached.

“On behalf of UiD and SBASSG you are kindly invited to participate in our Free Signpost Training.  Please share with those that would benefit/be interested. 

Online Training Activity Here -> www.uidswansea.com/signpost-training/

With the aim of improving the capacity of individuals/organisations in supporting Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the Swansea area, Unity in Diversity (Swansea 2015) and Swansea Bay Asylum Seeker Support Group invite you to complete the following activity. Participants who demonstrate a clear understanding of appropriate referral routes will receive a digital/printable certificate of acknowledgement in using effective signposting.

Using our Directory of Services, appropriate referral routes will be identified using example case scenarios. As this is designed to improve our collective capacity participants and organisations that contribute extra information on new/existing services will have specific feedback and acknowledgement for improving the directory as contributors.

This training is provided free of charge and is open to any individual/organisation with an interest in supporting asylum seekers and refugees. Organisations that have a number of staff participating will receive acknowledgement in the form of an ‘Organisation Certificate’. It is very important to note that many of the services in our directory support the general population, not just asylum seekers and refugees.
