Job Description

We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative and pro-active individual with experience teaching children to run one of our weekly ESOL classes for Spanish/Portuguese speaking children who have recently migrated to the UK. The post-holder will be responsible for planning and delivering creative and interactive ESOL classes for up to 10 children aged 5-7 years old OR 8-12 years old.

Some children on the project are still waiting to start school in the UK and coming to IRMO is often the only time in the week they have fun and learn with children their age. For this reason, it is particularly important that our ESOL Teachers understand the challenges migrant children face and show empathy.

The overall aims of the ESOL classes are to equip children with the English Language skills they need to: thrive and integrate more easily into their new schools; reach their full potential; make new friends; feel part of the wider English-speaking community; and rebuild their lives in the UK.
