Action It Theatre Company are recruiting sports coaches for their 2017 summer schools in Italy. EXPERIENCE OF WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE IS ESSENTIAL.

Teachers are required to fly to Pisa on the 10th/11th June. The summer school starts on the June 12th and will run until Saturday 1st July. One week placements commencing the 3rd September might also be available

Hours are approximately 8am/9am – 4pm Mon-Fri & some schools will also hold a Saturday morning session from 9.00-12.00. These times may change slightly depending on the school in which teachers are placed in. Teachers are required to be at the school 30 minutes prior to the course start time every day.

Teachers will be placed in a new school every week in a different town in the Tuscany or Emiglia Romagna region. A weekly fee is offered based on the current minimum wage rates plus flights are paid for and accommodation and meals will be provided with a host family.

The aim of the week is to teach English through the use of drama, art and sport and for the students to perform a final show in English at the end of the week.  The sports sessions are to help the students work as a team,increase fitness levels and enhance co-ordination.  Sports coaches will be responsible for teaching sporting terminology and rules of play in English for sports such as; football, badminton, cricket, rounders, volleyball, basketball and relay games.

During this period it can be very hot which can make it extremely hard work.  This said it is incredibly rewarding and it is a great way to practice coaching people who speak very little English. It is also a great way to see a bit of Italy in the evenings and at the weekends.

Two of the School’s students have had excellent experiences on this programme before. (See Shanie’s account here)

Teachers MUST SPEAK ENGLISH AS THEIR MOTHER TONGUE AND HOLD A CURRENT DBS OR BE WILLING TO OBTAIN ONE.

The ideal candidates must have patience, confidence, be fun, have high energy levels and enjoy working with children from 5-13yrs.

Two days training to be given in Lincoln prior to starting.

The Action It Theatre Company are looking for sports coaches for their summer camps in Italy. A number of our students have had very positive experiences of these camps in the past.

Salary: An hourly wage plus flights. Accommodation and subsistence provided with host family. All travel in Italy to and from work will be covered also.

For more details on the role, and how to apply, please see the English Theatre of Europe’s website.

Shanie Stathers, a Sport & Exercise Science student entering her third year, spent two weeks this summer coaching sport in Tuscany at camps run by the English Theatre of Europe. She has kindly shared some thoughts about the very positive experiences she had in Italy:

“ I have had the opportunity to work in two different schools in Italy, one being in a large city and one being in a small village. I never intended to teach sport, especially not to children, as I am not the best with communication and presentation when it comes to coaching. However when this job came up I thought it wouldn’t hurt to have a go.

My first week was in a large school teaching a variety of sports to over 100 children aged between 6 and 11. My second week was in a small school teaching 48 children aged between 10 to 14. At first it was hard, especially the language barrier, but once I got into the swing of things I loved every minute of it. I worked with a few different teachers during the experience and along with teaching sport I got to learn about Italian culture by living with two different host families.

The experience has taught me that if you don’t give something a go you won’t know if you enjoy it or not. I have gained new skills and built up more knowledge on the ones I never realised I already had!”

Shanie followed in the footsteps of fellow Sport & Exercise Science student Jake Gear, who worked on the same camp programme the previous summer. Both responded to adverts posted on this blog, and we will continue to pass on news of any similar opportunities offered by the English Theatre of Europe or other organisations.

P.S. We’d love to hear about any sport, exercise or health-related paid or voluntary work you undertook this summer…and what you learned from the experience. Please let us know at impresslincoln@gmail.com

We have received the following details of this position from English Theatre of Europe. One of our students was employed in this role last year and really enjoyed the experience.
