Details of Position

Bucksmore Education, part of the Oxford International Education Group of companies, are recruiting for the most important role at our Summer centres - our teaching positions of EFL Counsellor and Specialist Counsellor, for our British Council-accredited summer schools in Cambridge, Kent, London, Oxford, Surrey and East Sussex.

EFL Counsellors have the opportunity to work on both the teaching and activity programmes. They deliver engaging EFL lessons and lead stimulating activity sessions at residential summer schools in the UK. All Bucksmore staff will also have pastoral responsibilities. The Bucksmore EFL Counsellor role is a demanding but ultimately very rewarding one.

Specialist Counsellors will be involved in similar programmes to our EFL Counsellors but focus on specific subject areas. At the same time, they have the opportunity to work on both the teaching and activity programmes. They deliver engaging lessons and lead stimulating activity sessions at residential summer schools in the UK. All Bucksmore staff will also have pastoral responsibilities. The Bucksmore Specialist Counsellor role is a demanding but ultimately very rewarding one. Subject areas that Specialist counsellors will need knowledge of and experience in include - Medicine, Business and Finance, Performing Arts, Media and Communication and Engineering.

Bucksmore Education welcomes individual students and small groups from over 75 different countries. For our students it is a fully immersive English language learning experience as they live, study and play as part of an international community.

Bucksmore welcome applications from staff of all backgrounds and experience but can only offer roles to applicants with a right to work in the UK/EU for our UK based courses.

Bucksmore Education has been running well regarded, high-quality residential summer schools since 1979 and 2019 is our 40th Anniversary! The results of its 2017 inspection put it in the top 10% of all English language schools accredited by the British Council.

This year we have eleven centres:

We are also running courses in Philadelphia (USA) and more information about these roles are available on request. Staff on our USA courses must have the right to work in the USA and no ineligible applicants will be considered.

Because of the 'boutique' nature of the camps and small number of students Counsellors work with, staff have the chance to really get to know and inspire the students.

Bucksmore Education strives to have a fair and equal recruitment and selection. Successful applicants will come from diverse backgrounds and with varying levels of experience but all will be able to demonstrate commitment and enthusiasm to work with children and ensure they have the complete 'Bucky' experience.

The post holders' responsibilities for safeguarding the welfare of the young students for whom they are responsible and with whom they come into contact, will be to adhere to Bucksmore's Child Protection Policy.

You will be asked to explain any gaps in your CV and any applications with significant omissions will not be considered. You should provide the contact details of at least 2 referees.
