Do you have experience working with children?
Are you looking for something different and rewarding to do this summer?
Working on English Experience Camps might be for you!
The English Experience is currently recruiting both qualified EFL teachers and experienced activity leaders to work with young learners on summer camps predominantly in Italy (some opportunities in Slovenia and Germany). Contracts are typically for two weeks either at the beginning or the end of the European school holidays.

All staff are required to travel to the camp on the Saturday before the camp and working hours are Monday to Friday, typically 08:30-16:00. No pastoral duties are required.

We provide bespoke resources and you will be part of a like-minded, encouraging team. This is a chance to develop skills, and to progress into a more specialised role. It is possible to be promoted to the role of Coordinator, or Drama Coordinator. It is a great experience that could be put towards building a career in EFL.
