Job title

Teacher of English (Young Learners)

Job description

For the academic year 2021-2022, small language school in the south of Italy requires a teacher of English and activities for toddlers and kids aged 4–8 years. The two branches of our language school, part of the larger network of British School Group, are located in Melfi (PZ) and Venosa (PZ) in the southern Italian region of Basilicata. Melfi and Venosa are tranquil market towns with their own castles and access to a reasonable range of facilities, services, and public transport. Like most other schools, ours too is equipped with computers, internet, projectors, photocopiers, and resource books.

Salary and benefits

CONTRACT: From September 2021 to the end of May 2022. Summer work may be available. The contract is renewable upon mutual consent. SALARY: EUR900.00 net per month. Taxes will be taken care of by the school. HOURS: 18 classroom hours per week. Lesson preparation time is already included in the salary as are any meetings that need to be attended. Should there be overtime for classroom teaching hours, this will be paid in addition to the salary. The monthly salary is fixed and paid regardless of the number of hours teachers may end up working. PAID BREAKS: 2 weeks at Christmas, 1 week at Easter, and national holidays (approx. 5 days).


We are interested to hear from experienced teachers who enjoy teaching kids, who enjoy doing activities with kids, who will be able to see the contract through to the end, and who do not mind a peaceful countryside setting.

Native English speakers, or non-natives with a clear accent / pronunciation and a C1-C2 level of proficiency in English. Proof of language proficiency may be required.

EU citizens, or non-EU citizens already in possession of valid working papers for Italy. Due to the red tape involved, we are unable to process applicants who do not meet this requirement.

A TEFL / TESOL or other teaching qualification which contains a supervised practical, hands-on teaching practice component.

Teaching experience with kids and in activities-based lessons – e.g. arts & crafts, drama / theatre, songs, and games – would be an advantage.
