I have a TEFL certificate but no college/university degree? May I still apply?
Yes you may. As a rule most of our teachers here hold degrees but we will consider every applicant with a standard TEFL certification.
What is the taxation like in the Czech Republic?
Flat Tax 15 %
What does the “90 day probation period” mean in practice?
A three-month period during which the new teacher can expect to be observed by a member of our Academic Office.
Do you accept applications on a short-term basis?
It depends. As a rule we don’t because with all the paperwork and student dissatisfaction when they will require another teacher during the semester, it’s simply not viable for us. However, if the candidate intends to work from, for example, mid February to the end of the school year then depending on our staffing needs we would be open to this possibility.
Do I need a Visa to work in the Czech Republic for Caledonian School?
If you are an EU citizen then you do not need a Visa. All other nationalities need valid Czech working, business or family member Visa.
Does Caledonian School have a dress code for teachers?
Caledonian School expects its teachers to be professionally dressed when they enter the classroom – whether that classroom is in one of our buildings or that of one of our corporate clients. Those clients expect their employees to come to work dressed professionally, and Caledonian School expects the same of its teachers. As a rule our male teachers should wear black trousers, a shirt and black shoes. Our female teachers should wear smart shoes, a smart skirt, a dress, or trousers and top.
What does a typical teaching schedule look like?
What are class sizes like?
We have a limit of no more than 12 students per class. In many cases, especially in-company courses, class sizes will be smaller and it is not uncommon to teach one-to-one or small groups of 2 or 3 students.
Does Caledonian School provide help in finding accommodation?
No, but we provide some useful information
I already have health insurance – will it be valid in the Czech Republic?
We recommend that you check with your health insurance provider before you come to the Czech Republic. You will definitely require valid health insurance for at least the first 90 days of your stay in the Czech Republic.
What kind of contract do you offer? For how long will I be contracted to Caledonian School?
We offer our teachers ‘open’ contracts. This means that the time period is indefinite. After the completion of every calendar year, we automatically renew and update the teacher’s contract. Like every school we deeply frown on any teachers leaving in the course of the school year owing to the disruption it causes to the students and us.
Is it possible to contact a current Caledonian School teacher?
Conrad Armstrong, who has taught with us since 2004, will be happy to share his experiences teaching in Prague. Contact him
