- Paid national bank holidays, pension contributions as per national contract

- Italian National Contract for Private School Teachers for the Academic year 2019/2020.

Social and Cultural Benefits:

Kiosk is based in the city centre of Ragusa, one of the most picturesque parts of Sicily. Ragusa Ibla is one of the UNESCO-listed Baroque towns of south-eastern Sicily with a new airport in Comiso, ten miles away, and only 20km from the coast. Following the great earthquake of 1693 that destroyed most of Ragusa Ibla’s ancient buildings, the town was rebuilt on higher level ground. Today, Ragusa has two parts namely Ibla and The City of Ragusa which is the modern upper town from where the view over Ragusa Ibla is quite breathtaking.

There are lots things to do in Ragusa such as wandering through the ancient medieval/baroque town of Ibla with its labyrinthine lanes, eating out in stylish restaurants, stopping for a drink in an olde worlde pub or sunbathing on the wonderful sandy beaches in Marina di Ragusa only half an hour drive from the city centre. Quality of life is one of Ragusa’s biggest assets. The weather is typically Mediterranean, the food is fresh, locally sourced and its quality is recognised all over the world. Finally, it is important to remember the cost of living is low compared to the rest of Italy meaning your money goes further.


Qualifications such as CELTA or equivalent TEFL level 5 are essential. Experience with Cambridge English exam preparation at A2, B1 and B2 levels is key to the role. The successful applicant, if not already up to date, will be required to become familiar with the 2020 A2 and B1 exam changes and undertake on average 25 hours a week contact time. Recent police/discloure checks is essential given the work will be predominantly with school age students.

How to apply

Contact Director of Studies Amalia Sigona at or alternatively by phone (‭+39 329 9145787). Candidates are required to send an up to date CV, cover letter and a digital copy of the CELTA certificate or equivalent.
