Teacher trainers and mentors

We sometimes partner with Ministries of Education and other organisations to achieve shared goals. Our teacher trainers and mentors are not based in teaching centres, but are located in schools and teacher training colleges working with trainee or qualified teachers to develop their English language proficiency and/or teaching knowledge and skills.

Working independently, without on-site supervision and often in remote and/or rural locations these type of posts suit autonomous self-starters looking to make a difference in unique locations. This type of role is often an excellent career development opportunity for experienced English Language teachers to broaden their academic and professional skills and make that first step in to teacher training.

What we're looking for

We look for experienced EFL teachers who have done their initial teacher training (CELTA/CertTESOL) and then gained significant post-certificate teaching experience with a range of ages and abilities.

Some roles will also require experience of teacher training and development.

You will be working with primary and secondary teachers and therefore knowledge about how children learn is essential.

Relationship building is a core component of this type of work in developing strong, trusting relationships with teachers, school administrators, Ministry officers and British Council colleagues. 

How to apply

You can find vacancies on the British Council’s central job site.  If you meet the essential criteria, you will be invited to interview.
