Recruitment NOW OPEN!!

Would you like to spend an unforgettable summer in a busy, fast-paced, varied and fun environment working with young people from all corners of the globe? If so, please read on.

We organise 6 different programmes, all of which are based in residential colleges and boarding schools with excellent on-site facilities. Our centres are located in the south-east of England and our courses cater for students aged from 6 up to 20 years old.

All of our students and staff live on the campus and in this way, you will be part of a truly international community. Apart from your regular duties, you will be fully involved in looking after the pastoral and welfare needs of the students which can give a huge sense of achievement and satisfaction - and of course, working and living with young people, there is never a dull moment!

There are different roles available but most staff join Bede's as either EFL Teachers, Activities Leaders or House Parents. There are also some positions available for Administrators and managerial positions are available for suitably-qualified, skilled and experienced staff such as Centre Director, Academic Manager, Activities Manager and Welfare Manager.

The typical working day varies from course to course and from job to job; you will find that the day is long and often quite challenging, but also varied, entertaining and fast-moving. Whatever your role, you will find working at one of our centres immensely rewarding, which is why many staff choose to join us year-on-year.

If you are hard-working, reliable, safety-conscious, professional and willing to go the extra mile to ensure the well-being of our students and ultimately the success of our courses, we would like to hear from you. Our goal is to give students an educational, culturally-enriching and memorable summer experience in a safe and supervised setting. We employ staff who are willing to accept this responsibility and who have the necessary wide-ranging skills, experience and commitment to achieve this.
