Living and working in Prague:

How easy is it to find a job?

There is currently a massive demand for English teachers in Prague and the rest of the Czech Republic. There are many opportunities for English teachers either through a language school or by setting up private classes yourself. Our job placement department will advise and help you with all your job search requirements. Most recruitment is done locally, and most institutions require teachers to have either a Trinity Cert. TESOL or CELTA as a minimum qualification. The main opportunities lie in teaching General English, Business English and Young Learners. The Cambridge exams are also very popular, especially PET, FCE, CAE and CPE. The academic year runs from September to June. In the summer most schools offer summer courses or run camps in the countryside. Expect to do around 20 to 25 hours teaching a week and earn around 20,000kc  a month on average when you start out. This will increase after the first year and you can supplement your income through finding private students. We offer a free lifelong careers service to all our graduates and work is available year round. For more information contact us.
