Star English Academy S.L. is a small, friendly school based on a business partnership between Caroline Nixon and Jim Kelly, both of whom actively participate in the running of the school and the teaching of students. There are two schools open, one in Murcia city centre and the other in El Palmar (a town some eight kilometres outside Murcia). Both schools are official Cambridge exam preparation centres.
We pride ourselves on our excellent teaching standards and the personal attention we give to all of our pupils. We have a very high success rate in the Cambridge exams at all levels, and collaborate extensively with Cambridge University Press in the publication of their ELT materials.
Caroline Nixon and Michael Tomlinson are Cambridge authors. They have written six titles in their photocopiable series Cambridge Copy Collection: Primary Activity Box, Primary Vocabulary Box, Primary Grammar Box, Primary Communication Box, Primary Pronunciation Box, and Primary Reading Box. They have also written the successful seven-level series for Young Learners, ‘Kid’s Box’, for Cambridge, and the recently published seven-level course, ‘Power Up’. Caroline and Michael give teacher-training talks all over the world.
‘Kid’s Box’ is the course book we use here at Star English with our young learners.
We are looking for qualified, dynamic, inspired and inspiring teachers who can teach up to C2 level with confidence.

Degree (preferably in modern languages);
