We are looking for host teachers to combine accommodating and teaching learners. Most students are from France and Italy and enjoy spending time in the UK in the summer months. They really want to improve their English for school, examination, university and/or career prospects. They normally ask for 10, 15 or 20 hours per week of individual lessons. Stays are one to one or sometimes two students at the same time. Free time is spent with you and the family and we ask that they should be taken out on local excursions a minimum of three times per week. Teachers should have either a degree, PGCE, TEFL qualification, QTS status or relevant experience. We provide course materials, resources and arrange development days.
We are also looking for warm and welcoming families to receive a student/two students in their home for short term contracts, usually a week or two weeks throughout the summer months. Students live as family and share your family life, e.g. chatting, watching TV, going for walks or shopping. It is important that there is always a family member available throughout the stay. We need clean, comfortable accommodation and people who like to show visitors a little of life in the UK.
Channel English Studies is a family run business and has been offering these courses for the last 25 + years. Many of our existing host teachers and families have been on our register for a long time and we know each other well. Equally many students also return year and after year to their ‘English families’ and strong bonds are built between the students and family members.
Finally we offer competitive fees, strong, sympathetic support on both the academic and social aspects of the courses and we are available 24/7 throughout the stays.
If you would be interested in further information, please contact us by email and we will send out a guide to hosting/teaching students, an application form and a list of fees. Please note that we need an Enhanced DBS. If you do not have a current one, we can arrange this.
