Short-Term Summer Camp Role

Do you love working with children in a fun and active way? Do you want to inspire children to learn English? Would you like to immerse yourself in Italy’s beautiful culture? If yes, then you are perfect for this role!

This company specialises in providing fun, creative, and engaging English language Summer camps and are recruiting energetic, enthusiastic and dynamic individuals to spend an amazing Summer teaching English across Italy!

Their Summer camps facilitate and encourage learning through games, songs, and creative activities, such as arts & crafts and performance showcases.

The overall aim of the camps is to give children the motivation and the confidence to speak the language.
