As an ESL teacher you will have timetabled lessons and work with several classes across the age range whether it be early years, elementary or middle school in class sizes that are no more than 24 and work collaboratively with the homeroom or English subject teacher. There is an English Programmes Director in the school and teachers are encouraged to develop a student centered learning environment with an emphasis on developing linguistic and communication skills.
The school is 100% Turkish, very cultural where little English is spoken (and that goes for the local community too). Applicants need to adapt on a cultural level both professionally and socially. You will need to be patient, independent, flexible, creative and be a good team player. An overseas package is offered including a monthly tax free salary of US$3000, furnished shared accommodation with bus transportation, paid utility bills, state medical insurance and annual flights all wrapped up in a one year contract. Interviews will be via Skype. Please consult your local recruiter for more information.
Here are the standard recruitment criteria:
Three or four year Bachelors' Degree in English, English Language or Education plus a 120 hour ESL certificate. Candidates must be able to provide certificates bearing the subject of study as above. If the subject is not stated on the degree certificate, the teacher must provide attested certification, from a previous employer, that he/she has been employed as a specialist teacher of English for a minimum two years. OR A four-year bachelors' degree not stating the subject area as English or Education will be acceptable provided the candidate can provide evidence of competence in English teaching in the form of TEFL; TESOL, CELTA (120 hours minimum). Relevant certificates will be required. Degrees (three or four year) in other subjects plus a post graduate teaching qualification (e.g. P.G.C.E) are NOT accepted.
