Teaching, Activity & Pastoral Staff
We are now accepting applications for staff to work on our Easter 2020 course from 1st-15th April. We have positions available for teachers, activity staff and pastoral staff.
About the Courses
Millfield English Language Holiday Courses (MELHC) offer English language tuition to international students together with a full activity, social and cultural programme.
The courses are accredited by the British Council and teachers are appropriately trained to teach English as a Foreign Language.
Our residential courses are available in the Easter holidays for students aged 10-17 and the summer holidays for students aged 6-17.
The Easter course is held at our Street campus in Somerset.
Our main focus is delivering an engaging, creative and educational English learning experience; all of the students attending our courses will participate in at least 15 hours of English studies per week. Alongside this we provide two excursions per week, a range of sporting and creative activities, extra English options and an exciting social programme for the evenings.
With an impressive range of facilities, including a swimming pool, theatre, concert hall, golf centre and a tennis centre, students are in the best environment to build on existing skills or discover new talents.
Alongside a competitive salary, we offer free accommodation, food and laundry service, plus holiday pay which is calculated at 12.07%. When off-duty staff are also able to use the facilities which include a gym, tennis courts and sports halls (facilities vary per campus). We have a clear management structure in place with induction training (paid pro rata) and a full support system during the courses.
All staff will have one full day off per week, the specific day is chosen by the Management team and will vary per job role and campus. Special requests for additional time off are considered on a case-by-case basis.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All successful applicants will be DBS checked. Overseas applicants are required to provide a Certificate of Good Conduct from their country of residence. Please read our Safeguarding Policy before applying.

Shortlisting will be based on the selection criteria for the role and compared against the information contained within the candidate's application form; this will assess the candidate’s availability, qualifications, skills, experience, knowledge, aptitudes and abilities. The capability of the individual to perform in the position will be the major factor and in certain roles the ability to work with others will be taken into account.
At least one individual conducting the interview must have completed Safer Recruitment in Education Training. Candidates will be asked both technical/competency based questions as well as questions that attest to the match of the Person Specification in the Job Description.
The interview team will ensure that candidates with a disability or special needs are fully provided for at the interview, providing notification has been made in advance.
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview in person or via Skype.
Returning staff are not required to re-interview.
Offers of appointment are subject to the receipt of satisfactory checks as outlined in the Selection and Recruitment Checklist in our Safer Recruitment, Selection and Disclosure Policy.
Pre-employment checks are an essential part of our responsibility under the Children Act and an expectation of the National Boarding Standards and DfE circular Keeping Children Safe In Education: Statutory guidance for all schools and colleges. Whilst no system will guarantee that no one unsuitable is ever recruited to Millfield Enterprises, a high standard of scrutiny should reduce the potential for harm being done to the children in our care.
Pre-Employment Checks include, but are not limited to, the receipt of two written references (one of which must be from the applicant’s most recent employer), an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check which the School considers to be satisfactory, and verification of the applicant's identity, including address and date of birth (where this has not previously been verified). For a full list of Pre-Employment Checks please see our Safer Recruitment, Selection and Disclosure Policy.
