EF Education First’s mission is opening the world through education. 

A career with EF combines the support and opportunity of a large international organisation, with the spirit and energy of a small business. We look for thinkers and doers – creative, collaborative, and motivated people who are excited by education, communication, and travel.

When you join EF, you join a multicultural and diverse community working across more than 600 schools and offices in 50 countries. In the UK and Ireland, our core presence is felt at our international language campuses and summer schools, where we welcome students from around the world to participate in language learning and cultural exchange. Whoever you are, whatever you are passionate about—we welcome you and encourage you to open the world through education. 

Your Role 

Work with the support of a professional academic team and award-nominated materials to deliver the EF academic program to classroom groups of up to 17 language students. You will be planning lessons that create an inspiring safe and supportive classroom environment where building your students’ confidence in using language is your primary concern. 

After a summer of working as an EF Teacher, you will enhance your teaching knowledge and experience by working with a team of diverse teachers and academic management. You will be adaptable and capable of solving various issues without hesitation. Working in an academic environment, you will have seen how students grow in their language, make new friends and create summer memories that last a lifetime.
