We are looking for a English language assistant in our school for the following periods:

- one assistant from January to March 2024.

The intern (from one of the EU states ) would assist the English teachers, take charge of groups of maximum 15 students for conversation classes and oral work ; he/she would also organise an English club during lunchtime and contribute to cross curricular work in collaboration with other subject areas (History, Arts, Geography, Technology... ). The intern would also give language lessons to the adults of our school (levels varying from A2 to C1 ).

Mastery of German or Spanish (either as a native language or C1 level) would be greatly appreciated in order to assist the other language teachers, and run a German or Spanish club during lunchtime too. Any other native language is welcome, to set up a beginner's club in that language, either for the pupils of our school or the adults. Additional skills with music, either playing an instrument or singing would be an added bonus to our school and specifically to our music teacher to help with choir practice.

We are looking for someone with a passion for teaching, and languages. Candidates should have an excellent command of English, C1 in European Framework and a mininum level of B2 in French. A referent will be provided to help settle in, and with administrative matters. No previous experience of teaching is required, however we are looking for someone who is interested in education, and is used to dealing with teenagers.

The financial compensation will consist of accommodation (hosting in the students' families), lunch at school on schooldays, and a buspass for easy access to the beautiful city of Nantes, and to the Atlantic beaches.

We are looking forward to hearing from you. If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

To apply, please send your CV and a cover letter, stating which period you would be interested in.
