Job Description

Our teachers should be professional teachers, people who are genuine about education, people who love to work with children and get great satisfaction working with children. We are looking for teachers who are eager to expand their career in education, people who are looking to grow. Our teachers are loving, caring and genuinely interested in children. They like to interact with children be they their own students or others. Our teachers are not afraid of letting their hair down, getting dirty and hands on with the kids. Our teachers are open to new concepts, to new ideas to new methodologies and are generally open to learning and keen to learn.

Our teachers become the best teachers and they become very proud of what they do and have achieved.


  1. Teach approx. 25 hours per week (give and take)

    1. Unlike every other centre, we cap our teachers teaching hours for the sake of quality, passion and having enough energy to ensure each class is awesome

    2. We don’t state that in the contract as it reduces the centre’s ability to be flexible to accommodate for situations. However, all our centre managers do well to keep the teaching hours to 25 or under during regular term time. During the summer programme (our peak season between mid July to the end of August), you should expect to teach 28 hours (give and take). Most teachers find that if taken an average over a period like 3 months, their hours are within the informal cap.
