Language Assistants

Required: September 2017

We require enthusiastic, native speakers of French, Spanish and German to work as Language Assistants in our busy, international Languages Faculty.  Language Assistants support the work of the Languages Faculty under the supervision of the Modern Languages teachers and the Head of Faculty.  They may do this in whole class situations or independently with small groups of pupils.  The role involves improving students’ communication skills (in particular oral skills) and developing their knowledge of the society and culture of the target language.  Assistants will also help out with the Faculty’s after-school club once a week.

No special qualifications are required, but it is key that applicants have a passion for language acquisition.  Some experience of working with young people is desirable, but not essential.  Candidates wishing to stay for both a whole year or for shorter durations (eg one term) will be considered.

This position is unpaid, but the School offers free, full-board, on-site accommodation in a flat shared with the other language assistants.

Minimum Age:  18

Working Hours: Approximately 15 hrs per week over three days per week, term time only, from beginning September to end of June.  Cobham Hall School operates a two-week timetable, so working days may vary across the fortnight.  However, every effort will be made to provide assistants with a fair distribution of working days across the week.

Cobham Hall is an all girls’ boarding and day school.  As a Round Square School we are committed to its six ideals exemplified by its motto: “There is more in you than you think”.

The School is an equal opportunities employer.  We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  Successful applicants are subject to a DBS check.
