We are looking for a Manager for our Summer Course which has been running for 46 years under the same Director.
Vacational Studies accepts about 150 young people aged 10-18 from many countries. Many of these are the children of children we had in the '70s and '80s.
Vacational Studies is Accredited by The British Council for the teaching of English as a foreign language and is a member of English UK. The spirit of the Course is summed up in this short video created by one of our formers students, now sports staff.
Children progress through the Course from summer to summer with positions of responsibility if they wish. Every member of the Sports and Social team is a former student.
The Course Director takes a hands-on role with teaching and has responsibility for staff appointments and payments. The Manager ensures the smooth running of the day-to-day administration, keeping and distributing students' pocket money and will write a report on each student.
The job is suitable to a person who is or is looking at becoming a Housemaster/mistress or deputy head. It provides huge responsibility with the support and guidance of an experienced Director. Many of the staff, including the Academic Manager, have more than a decade of experience in the role.
Vacational Studies does not advertise for students or use agencies. It relies on its reputation and is currently fully subscribed for the summer of 2019. The role has become available after ten years as a result of staff promotion.
The post is resident with board and accommodation supplied.
Salary for the duration will be based on experience and will not be less than £4000.
