You should be able to read, speak and write English fluently in able to understand our notes, and should also be able to have basic IT skills in order to manage the laptop.
- You should be able to understand the brief of a client who will come to us for training, and prepare the specific teaching courses accordingly.

Ideally you should be flexible (if we give you at least 1-2 weeks notice) to work from 1 day up to 3 days in a row, occasionally (rarely) more. Occasionally we have overseas bookings and then we will arrange with you (in advance) for these dates).
You should speak a excellent level of English. You will be representing the school and we teach, write and communicate in English.

- Ideally you should be based in London or Greater London, but we are open to applications outside of this. However around 70% of our training takes place in London or surrounding areas.
Varied day rates depending on the training. For training taking place outside of London and surrounding areas, additional rates for travel/overnight expenses will be covered. We are currently looking for UK based applications for teacher training days.
The next teacher training day is taking place on the 15th of June 2018 - you would be invited to join this day and then after completion be invited to work with Polo & Tweed as a trainer.
