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:
