WHAT YOU’LL DO
You might work in a few kinds of schools, which could be bilingual, kindergartens or private after-school centres. You’ll also have the chance to teach at business English schools if you want to work with adults.
If you work in a kindergarten, you’ll teach during regular school hours. Most private training centre or business English school classes take place during weekday afternoons and evenings and during the daytime on weekends. Whatever your schedule, you’ll get two days off each week, on certain weekdays.
From beginners to intermediate learners, you’ll work with a range of abilities across all age groups. The best part? As most positions are in after-school centers, most students want to be there, so they’re usually well-behaved.
Your salary will depend on how many hours you work each month, but it averages around 4500 PLN (£800) per month for new arrivals. This is a comfortable salary for living in Poland, and it’ll increase the longer you stay.

HAVE YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES?
Who we’re looking for
While we’d love to help everyone who wants to launch a career in Poland, we’ve got to follow the rules. So, as Polish employment laws state, this program is only open to applicants who:
Are from a country where English is an official national language
Have some teaching experience
Have the funds to pay for the program and associated costs
That’s not all – given the way the Polish market works, you’ll also need to be adaptable, resilient and willing to ride the wave of working on a freelance basis.
No degree? Good news – you don’t need one!
All you need to know about what’s included
If there’s one thing we believe, it’s that you should never have to pay to work. And with us you won’t have to; but, to be able to offer the support, guidance, training, and resources we’re known for, we require all participants to pay a program service fee.
