I'm a qualified secondary school teacher looking to go away and work and travel for the months of July and August. What are my options? Id be pretty easy going and would go anywhere if I had the advice.

Camp America and Usit would offer summer camp jobs and they take care of most of the paperwork if you are uneasy about dealing with visas and so on. The pay wouldn't be anything to write home about. You'd probably only cover the cost of the flight in what you earn but you have food and board so it would be more the experience you would be there for.

If you are thinking more the Europe direction again there are plenty of residential summer camps.

The careers service from your college can send you a newsletter with opportunities for graduates if you sign up to it. One opportunity I saw on mine recently was for a camp in Italy. I am not endorsing this particular camp as I haven't been to it. Just posting the information for it to you as it was advertised recently and the dates seem flexible.

English Language Summer Camp Tutors required

Bell Beyond are currently recruiting native English speakers to join our Summer Camp programme in Italy as English Tutors. We specialise in English language learning for Italian children throughout the country. Bell offers summer camps in which we facilitate learning through games, songs and creative activities such as arts & crafts and performance showcases. “Edutainment” is at the heart of our work. A typical day at camp starts and ends with the students singing English songs all together. The rest of the day is divided between the children working in small groups with their own personal tutor and taking part in big activities with the rest of the camp. The overall aim of the camps is to give children the motivation and the confidence to speak the language.
