English Language Assistant in Germany

GERMANY / Hermann-Lietz-Schule, Haubinda

The Hermann-Lietz-Schule, Haubinda, Germany is looking for native English speakers to work for an academic year as English Language Assistants, from 10 August 2016 to July 2018.

Haubinda is a small, rural boarding and day school for pupils aged from 7 to 20. More information about the school can be found at www.haubinda.de or www.haubinda.net

We are looking to appoint people who aren’t afraid of hard work and who enjoy working with young people. The ability to speak at least intermediate German is important, too, although language skills improve greatly over the year.

This post would be suitable for someone looking to take a year out before going to university, taking a year out as part of their course, or a recent graduate looking to broaden their experience. Responsibilities of the job include helping out in class and giving one-on-one lessons to weaker pupils.

Assistants play a large role in the life of the school and are actively encouraged to take part in extra-curricular activities, which range from sport to baking to metal-work to choir. You are encouraged to take part in field trips as a supervisor at no extra cost. You will be paid the German minimum wage, which will amount to €900 a month. This translates to a net income of €450 after room, board, health insurance and taxes have been deducted.

Accommodation is provided in a single room in a flat shared with other junior staff members. All meals are provided on site during term-time. Onsite internet access is also available.

Applications should be sent by email to Kirsten Ehinger: k.ehinger[at]hl-haubinda.de (subject: application for assistantship) In this you should describe your previous schooling, language skills, achievements, interests, previous visits to Germany (if relevant) and you should attach a recent photo (common practice in Germany).

Expires: June 1, 2017
