Language Guide

We are always looking for the right people to run our language clubs. Obviously,  you need to be a native speaker or fluent in the target language.  You also need to be full of enthusiasm because our method is all about children having fun in the language rather than explanations about how the language works.

At Speak Like A Native we call a Language Teacher a Language Guide. The job is to guide children through the language in a fun, stress-free way.
A language teacher inspires children to communicate through participation in play.

Speak Like A Native language clubs are for children aged 5 – 11 (KS1 and KS2), and take place in primary and prep schools. We won’t call you a teacher but a Language Guide because your job is to guide children through meaningful games, tasks and activities.

Our clubs start in September, January and April and run for between 10 and 12 weeks in term time. We recruit all year to fill these positions.

If this sounds like it’s for you, complete the application form below.

Good luck!

Please note that Speak Like A Native is not a school and we do not offer “full time” positions. Our clubs are located in primary schools across London Surrey, Kent and Essex. You need to be able to get to the schools where we operate and be available at the specific time the clubs operate.

A typical contract during term time may be for 1 – 10 hours per week.

Working for Speak Like A Native as a Language Guide will suit somebody who is passionate about working with children aged 5 – 11 and wants to use their language skills. As our clubs are in schools spread across London and Essex and generally take place at 15.30, we cannot offer “full-time” work. Our Language Guides are usually studying or also working somewhere else and see the opportunity of building their classroom experience and enhancing their CV. We offer continual training and development as well as support in safeguarding for children.

We are interested in qualified teachers as well as trainee / future teachers or people with some experience working with children (e.g. summer camps, sporting activities etc).
