Our courses are full time and run from June until the end of August this summer. We offer a beautiful location to spend your days with friendly and committed staff here at Concord College, not to forget the opportunity to earn something extra during your Summer break.

We offer a competitive salary depending on your experience -  if this sounds up your street, we would love to hear from you.

- The College is situated in a beautiful rural location in close proximity to Shrewsbury and the Shropshire hills. Almost all summer course teachers are residential, and some undertake additional paid house parenting duties.
