Job description

Looking to teach English the heart of Central Europe but still looking for that magical "way in"? Working with English Wizards provides you the option to find paid teaching jobs at schools all over Poland with a legal work visa and full support available inside and outside of the classroom.

Poland is one of the world’s fastest-growing TEFL destinations due to its charming culture, beautiful medieval cities, low cost of living, and the widespread availability of jobs for native English speakers. Navigating the job market alone can be quite difficult, especially without EU citizenship, but English Wizards makes the process easier than ever before!

Poland’s major cities, including Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk, and Wroclaw, have an abundance of teaching jobs available and don’t suffer from oversaturation of English teachers. At least not yet!

English teachers will find a wide variety of jobs available in Poland. In the private sector, there are opportunities to teach at private language schools that cater to both adults and children, business English is also growing rapidly, and many teachers are sent by language schools to teach “in company” classes. For those who prefer the youngsters, jobs in preschools and private primary schools exist as well. Private tutoring is also very popular.

In a nutshell; you have a lot of options for where to teach and who to teach in Poland! At English Wizards, we work with each of our teachers on an individual basis to find the right pathway tailored to each of our strengths. Whether you’re imagining yourself in a classroom of young children or business professionals; we’ve got something for you!


Catering to teachers of all levels of experience and qualification, we provide the following program options:


Certification Programs
If you’re looking to get a reputable TESOL certification and your first ESL job to jumpstart your career, this is the program for you. We offer CELT-P and CELT-S courses, accredited by Cambridge University, in the heart of Poland’s historical gem city of Krakow. With guaranteed job placement in Poland alongside your training, you’ll be in the classroom in no time!

Early Childhood Education
Looking to work with youngsters at a preschool or kindergarten? Our Very Young Learners’ Program, offered in partnership with International House, will provide you with a training program to make you stand out as a teacher and be immediately hirable by preschools and kindergartens all over the world. The program includes guaranteed job placement at a kindergarten in Poland, including a competitive monthly salary and more!

Freelance Teaching
If you are already a qualified and experienced ESL teacher who’s ready to ‘spread your wings’ independently as a teaching professional, our Freelance Program is for you. We arm our freelancers with all the paperwork, support, connections, and guidance necessary to assist qualified ESL teachers in finding the best teaching opportunities Poland has to offer!

Salary and benefits

Salaries for native teachers range between €8 and €16 per hour, depending on your experience and qualifications. With a typical teaching workload of 25 hours per week, a teacher should expect to earn something in the range of €750 to €1500 per month. Considering the low costs of living in Poland, this allows for a fairly comfortable lifestyle, covering various “extras” such as regional travel around Central Europe.

Additional benefits of being with English Wizards include:

• Legal work visa BEFORE coming to Europe
• Work anywhere in Poland – uniquely, the visa through our program allows teachers to teach anywhere in the country, not just at one school
• Job placements & assistance
• Onsite support from our 24-hour support staff
• Full pre-departure and arrival support services
• Arrival orientation and regular social events
• Lifetime access to a wealth of teaching resources, such as lesson materials and job guidance
• Being part of Poland’s largest community of English teachers (100+ active teachers and counting)

Requirements

All teachers must be native English speakers. We can accept non-natives on a case-by-case basis assuming that you can speak English at a native level of fluency and have a clear accent. Applicants of all nationalities are welcome to apply - we pride ourselves on having a diverse community of teachers from every corner of the globe. Currently, our teachers come from 22 countries and 5 continents.

If you are not a native speaker, please include an audio or video clip showcasing your English abilities in your application. Non-native applicants without proof of excellent English fluency will be rejected.

Most schools will require a teacher to have a TEFL certification including live teaching practice and/or prior teaching experience, and we require this for our program as well. If you are new to teaching and not yet certified, we invite you to join our world-class teacher training program in Krakow, which includes a guaranteed job placement for all graduates.
