About this exciting opportunity

We are seeking expressions of interest from ELICOS Teachers to deliver our English courses (Monash English and Monash English Bridging) for students on a pathway to Monash University across our Bourke Street and Clayton campuses. This is a fantastic sessional teaching opportunity to be part of a well-known and reputable education provider, with a great support network. We have multiple positions to teach on our 20 week term one intake from 6th January 2020 to 29th May 2020 January 2020 across our Bourke Street and Clayton campuses.

Shortlisting will commence prior to the closing date and exact number of positions are subject to student numbers, hence early applications are encouraged. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend an interview day on the 19th of November 2019.

Our Monash English course is ideal for students who have not met the English requirements for their pathway program (minimum IELTS score of 3.5 required) and need further time to develop their English. This course provides students with a direct pathway to Foundation Year and Monash English Bridging (for Diplomas). Our Monash English Bridging course (minimum IELTS score of 5 required) is a direct entry program, designed for students who have met the academic requirements for Monash, but who have narrowly missed the English language requirements. Students will learn to develop the English language and academic skills required for pursuing diplomas, undergraduate, graduate coursework and graduate research degrees at Monash.
