Searching for an English teacher job in London?

If you have an affinity for the Bard, mentally correct grammar and spelling in publications, and know the name of the comma just used, World Class Teachers can help match you to the ideal English teacher role in London. Naturally, native English speakers with a firm grasp of all elements of the written and spoken language are best suited for these roles.

As the official language of the UK, a strong command of the English language is vital for students not only in education but in modern society. High-quality education allows for pupils to fluently express ideas and feelings in written and spoken English, as well as development of intellectual thoughts and creativity through reading and listening.

As a Key Stage 3 or 4 English teacher, focus should be on helping students further develop a love and appreciation for reading as well as cover a variety of subjects for a well-rounded literary experience. The ability to critically evaluating texts as well as effectively expressing their own thoughts through clear, concise writing is also imperative.

Expansion of vocabulary, confidently expressing viewpoints verbally, and the ability to constructively revise and proofread peers’ and own works are part of the national curriculum.

In A-levels, English studies are broken up into English Literature, English Language and Creative Writing to best utilise students’ strengths and interests, especially of those who wish to pursue further English studies in university.

To be eligible for these roles, you must:

  • hold a teaching qualification equivalent to a PGCE.
  • be able to provide two current references.
  • if applicable, have a relevant visa allowing you to undertake work in the UK.

Candidates unable to meet these requirements will not be considered.
