Re: Employment in Italy

Connors are good if you're an unqualified teacher. They accept more or less anybody, give them a week's training and then send them out to teach people who believe they are being taught by experienced mothertongue teachers. Their 'method' like those of so many of the schools in the area is empty. Th...

Re: Jobs in Italy - January 2014

You ask a question which is impossible to answer. How good are you at interviews? Do you have teaching experience? How good are you at teaching? Is your teaching course recognised by anybody other than the school selling it? Those answers are a starting point. Teachers are ten a penny here in Italy,...

Re: Partita iva - freelance in Italy.

A codice fiscale is a must. It means you are registered in the labour market as a taxpayer. Then you can apply for a Partita IVA. The rules state that you cannot have a partita IVA but work predominately for one company - so if you're thinking of working for a school be very carefull that you are no...

Re: CELTA and teaching in Italy

Work privately. That's how you get into the Italian tefl market. Being Italian, you have to pay for the Italian state education system's faults. Most Italians wouldn't consider taking English lessons with an Italian teacher, because they mostly experienced such teachers at school. I have taught no l...

Re: Spain or Italy - CELTA

Hmm.. Anybody looking for decent pay and holiday pay to boot would be best served giving Italy a miss. It is certainly possible to find work here and contrary to what a previous poster said, a CELTA is not required. Many schools advertise a preference for applicants to hold one, but that's for the b...

Re: British Institutes Italy?

As has already been said, British Institutes is a franchise operation. Some are good and some are not. It is a little unfair - no, it's very unfair - to therefore simply refer to British Institutes and not say which branch you refer to . BI are no different to most schools over here. Yes, some pay l...

Re: INLINGUA ITALY

Inlingua, like many other larger schools in Italy, is a franchise operation. Take each school on it's individual merits. Yes, there are a couple which are dodgy, but also some good ones. The quality of their training for non-experienced teachers may leave a little to be desired and I know their cont...
