ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM 

The Young Learners’ operation is currently based in four locations – a 7-classroom Young Learners Branch in the historical centre of Seoul to the north of the Han river near the Seoul City Hall, a 7 classroom Young Learners branch in Mokdong, a 7-classroom Young Learners branch in Seocho, and a 7 classroom Young Learners branch in Ilsan. Teachers are anchored to one centre, but may be requested to work across centres. We currently have more than 2,800 Young Learners studying with us. Growth is planned for the near future and, as such, Young Learner Centres in South Korea are a dynamic place to work with excellent professional development opportunities.

ABOUT THE BRITISH COUNCIL

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. Last year we reached over 80 million people directly and 791 million people overall including online, broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.

Valuing diversity is essential to the British Council’s work. We aim to abide by and promote equality legislation by following both the letter and the spirit of it to try and avoid unjustified discrimination, recognizing discrimination as a barrier to equality of opportunity, inclusion and human rights.

 

All staff worldwide is required to ensure their behavior is consistent with our policies.

 

The British Council is a full member of Keeping Children Safe (KCS) and has achieved level 1 child safe certification. We believe that all children have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse as set out in article 19, UNCRC, 1989 and that every child matters - everywhere in the world. In line with the British Council's Child Protection policy, any appointment is contingent on thorough checks including criminal record checks, in line with legal requirements.
