Summer Work Experience (paid) for 16 -18 year olds.

Do you want…

- some enjoyable, paid work experience this summer?

- something different to write on your CV or university application?

- to meet young people from overseas?

Alba English School is looking for study assistants to work with their teachers and students this summer.  The role involves assisting the main English Teacher of Activity Leader with classroom and cultural activities with young people from overseas (mostly aged 14-17) while they are learning English in Edinburgh.  No experience is required as you will be guided by the class teacher.  They are looking for people with a friendly, helpful and enthusiastic approach.

This would be a fantastic opportunity for anyone who is interested in a career in teaching or languages.

See Mrs O’Connell for further details.
