Seeking Teacher For Intro Engineering Classes Course Jobs Vacancy at Kingdom Education Summer School London Jobs Details:
STAFF OPPORTUNITIES – SUMMER SEASON, 2018
We have opportunities for full-time staff and in some cases for part-time staff. Where we have vacancies for the whole of our season, our preference is for staff who are available for the whole period; but some very short-term engagements may be considered, and in some cases we are only able to offer the odd week here and there.
Please be aware that we will be conducting background checks on all successful applicants. We would ask anyone who has a police record of any kind to contact us first to discuss this before making an application; subsequent discovery of a record would disqualify automatically.
Please note that our programmes operate 7 days a week. Therefore, all staff must be prepared to work at weekends. Everyone has at least one day off per week, but that could be any day of the week.
Most staff will be employees of KE, though in some cases, it may be more appropriate for them to be self-employed and contracting their services to us.
Accommodation may be available for teaching staff, but preference will be given to teachers who have their own accommodation locally (and higher rates are paid in this case).
Positions available as of January 20, 2018
We are currently looking for the following people for periods of 1-4 weeks in July. All roles are dependent upon student enrolments and selections; it becomes possible for us to confirm appointments as the booking season progresses.
Teachers: general remarks. We offer a wide range of courses, and therefore need a wide range of teachers. All courses:

- Are generally held at one particular centre
- Cater for a succession of different groups, so we start afresh each week
- Include a total of 16 hours of classroom tuition (plus project work)

- Teachers may work on a full-time basis (weekly wage) or on a more ad hoc, hourly basis.
- ‘Full-time’ is calculated at 48 hours per week; when hours are added up, for full-time staff, each hour of teaching is regarded as 1.5 hours of work, to allow for preparation time, writing reports etc.; time is also factored in for attending meetings.
- Involvement in activities is included in the case of full-time teachers; such involvement is expected to be active, not just passive supervision.
- Non-residential status is preferred, but accommodation can usually be arranged for teachers who are full-time.
- No ‘boarding duties’; no specific supervision duties beyond assisting generally to uphold reasonable standards of behaviour around the centre.
- Must be willing to do lesson preparation, attend meetings and in-service workshops and write student reports.
- At least one day off per week (but generally during the week rather than at weekends).

- if people work as independent contractors, they may add 10% to quoted fees in lieu of holiday pay (but not to bonuses or lunch allowances)
Also included for full-time, residential staff is accommodation at the study centre, together with half board (breakfast and dinner, but not lunch); if full-time staff are not taking board and lodging, their base rate is higher, as indicated below.
Board and lodging are generally not included for part-time staff. If they were provided, £100 per week would be deducted from the amount payable on the basis of the hourly rate.
