Just spreading the word about an upcoming webinar series for teachers I'm involved in (my session is on 8/8). Gonna be great! Easy sign up, easy to participate, and easy access to all recordings later if you can't make sessions.

Below was posted on FB by Ken Wilson ( today:


(I don't usually advertise ELT jobs, but today I'm going to make an exception. There are vacancies for teachers in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, with the New Generation group of schools. I was lucky enough to give a talk to NG teachers in April another Kazakh city, Pavlodar, and I was really impressed by the teachers, the owners and the support staff. Anyway, here are the details:

EFL Teacher
Astana, Kazakhstan
Start date: September 1st 2015

New Generation International Educational Center is looking for EFL professionals to work in Astana, the amazing capital city of Kazakhstan. An excellent local remuneration package is offered to the right candidate, who must have CELTA or equivalent and be committed to delivering high quality lessons and focused on self-development.

School Description:
New Generation International Educational Center has been providing first-class language tuition in Kazakhstan since 2000. The company has three main divisions: language schools, bookselling and the Studies Abroad department. There are three schools, two in Pavlodar and one in Astana.

Astana became the capital of Kazakhstan in 1997. Its modern architecture is striking in its scale and futuristic design, especially in contrast to the vast steppes that surround it.

Our ideal candidate for an EFL teacher position
• has a recognized EFL qualification (TEFL/TESOL/ CELTA/DELTA)
• has a university degree
• is outgoing, enthusiastic, positive, sociable, hard-working and looking for a challenge.

Moreover, experience in teaching YL and Exam Preparation (IELTS and TOEFL) is highly preferable. A Business English qualification will be an advantage, along with an IELTS Examiner qualification.

Applications from people who do not meet all of the above criteria will be considered, although only successful applicants will be contacted. We welcome applications from native and non-native speaker teachers of English.

Salary and benefits:
- Monthly salary: from KZT 220,000 (net) depending on qualifications and experience. About USD1,200 per month.

In addition, we offer the following remuneration package:
- Visa support: the school will help with and cover the cost of a multiple one-year visa;
- Economy return air fare to Astana
- Airport transfer on arrival and departure
- Free accommodation
- Free access to email and internet facilities
- 24-hour hotline emergency assistance.

Teachers will always have a senior member of staff with whom they can discuss any aspects of their work. Also, our school will help teachers settle smoothly into living in Kazakhstan and provide ongoing assistance on all matters that may otherwise prove difficult with the language barrier.

Hello CELTA grads!

An announcement (and an apology):

A few Teaching House provisional pass letters were sent out quickly, while the others encountered an admin delay and are presently getting into the mail from Detroit (where I am and had to sign them) to Boston in order to be picked up/sent out from there. Sorry for the delay! Rest assured this has nothing to do with the results, etc. Don't lose sleep over it.

If you have a change of address for this letter now, please let Maelle know. It should arrive mid-week next week at the latest. If you're picking up, expect them in Boston by Monday next week!

Hope everything in your post-CELTA life is going well. :)

Any reports/updates to share with the group, post 'em up!

Just a reminder: our CELTA day and first input session tomorrow have a delayed start at 9:30am, but the center opens at 8:30 as usual. So...while it's a slightly later start, but don't be late for 9:30! :)
