If you are able to fulfil these requirements (full terms and conditions can be found here), you will need to send a 500-650 word letter of application detailing the following, either to the regional coordinator at (Brazil) or (Levant), or alternatively via our apply page:

  • your motivation for applying

  • your future career aspirations

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to partake in a short interview, after which a final decision will be made regarding your application.

If you are passionate about English and share our belief that knowledge should be available to all, then we sincerely hope that you will consider applying for a place on one of our scholarships and joining our community of educators around the world.

My very best wishes,
