Work for us
Academic Camp Revision is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects its staff to share this commitment.
In the summer we employ a team of teachers who are qualified to teach their subjects and have experience in teaching one of the following: A-Level, IB, Advanced Placement or TEFL.
As well as experience we are looking for teachers that have enthusiasm and a love for their subjects. We like our teachers to make their subject options interesting and the lessons will be a mixture of theory and practical work.
We also look for enthusiastic camp counsellors/camp leaders. Ideal for this role are active people comfortable leading groups of students through activities and trips. You must be flexible throughout our course and have a few activity ideas up your sleeve!
Staff can work from one to six weeks dependant on their location. Teachers can work one to four teaching blocks a week and there is the opportunity to take part in additional counsellor work. We offer competitive rates of pay (advertised in the job description).
