Vacancy Description

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.


We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Each year we reach over 20 million people face-to-face and more than 500 million people online, via broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.

Through our English and Exams work we aim to achieve more widespread and better quality teaching and learning of English worldwide and offer access to professional qualifications.


Working with policymakers, government ministers, teachers and learners across the world we help millions of people to access English by supporting the teaching and learning of English in public education systems, and through self-access materials and courses. We teach learners and teachers of English face-to-face in dedicated teaching centres and online through a range of courses. Every year three million people take international exams with help from the British Council, gaining qualifications that can open doors at leading academic institutions and improve employment prospects.  

British Council Bogotá is looking for hourly paid teachers to join our expanding operation in Bogotá.  In order to be considered for an hourly paid position, you must have CELTA or equivalent plus a minimum of 6 months post CELTA teaching experience.  We offer a very competitive hourly rate, and can guarantee you a minimum of 10 hours per week teaching during the official weeks of our academic calendar (40 weeks per year).  There are also opportunities to teach intensive courses during the holiday periods (in July/August and December), as well as additional opportunities for offsite work, cover and placement testing.   We will provide you with all necessary paperwork for your visa, so long as you commit to staying with us for at least one year.  We do not pay flights or any additional benefits for these hourly paid positions, but many of our hourly paid teachers go on to work with us as full time teachers and beyond.
