Advanced English Teacher

The Advanced English programme at ISSOS is for students with a very high level of English and who need to focus more on their written English. The Advanced English Teacher will be responsible for designing a syllabus that will include improving the formation of coherent arguments and structure in formal essay writing and exploring a range of writing styles.

You will provide daily instruction, support and feedback to each student in order to ensure their continual improvement. ISSOS is looking for applicants who can provide a nurturing yet challenging atmosphere with individual attention and strong classroom management skills.

As an ISSOS teacher you have your own class of international students aged between 13-18 years old. ISSOS ensures that classes are kept small in order to provide individual attention, personalised instruction and create an encouraging and supportive environment for students to learn while having fun and making new friends from around the world. Although we provide every teacher a guide as to what each lesson should achieve, we encourage teachers to bring their own experience and personality to each class and create their own stimulating and challenging lesson plans.

ISSOS is looking for charismatic, inspirational individuals who are experienced in their field and have experience in leading, motivating and encouraging a group of young people.
