Teach English in Poland

English Wizards  
Krakow, Poland

Job Description

Looking to live and work in the heart of Central Europe but don’t have an EU passport and also don’t want to pay for an expensive program? Working with English Wizards provides you the option to find paid teaching jobs at schools all over Poland with a legal work visa and full support available inside and outside of the classroom.

Poland is one of the world’s fastest growing TEFL destinations due to its charming culture, beautiful medieval cities, low cost of living, and the widespread availability of jobs for native English speakers. Navigating the job market alone can be quite difficult, especially without EU citizenship, but English Wizards makes the process easier than ever before!

Poland’s major cities, including Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk, and Wroclaw, have an abundance of teaching jobs available and don’t suffer from oversaturation of English teachers like other European cities such as Barcelona, Prague, and Florence do. At least not yet!

English teachers will find a wide variety of jobs available in Poland. In the private sector, there are opportunities to teach at private language schools which cater to both adults and children, as well as preschools. Business English is also growing rapidly, and many teachers will sign contracts directly with a company to teach their employees. Jobs in primary and secondary schools exist as well, mostly in the form of teaching assistantships. Private tutoring is also very popular.

Schools hire teachers year-round to fill the constant demand, with peak hiring season being at the start of the academic year in September. Although summer camps are not as widespread as they are in other European countries, teachers who choose to stick around over the summer usually have no problem keeping their schedule full until the fall.

Salaries for native teachers range between €8 and €16 per hour, depending on your experience and qualifications. With a typical teaching workload of 25 hours per week, a teacher should expect to earn something in the range of €750 to €1500 per month. Considering the low costs of living in Poland, this allows for a fairly comfortable lifestyle, covering various “extras” such as regional travel around Central Europe.
