If you’re already TEFL certified or have some teaching experience, the English Wizards program may be your ticket to take your teaching career to the next level in Europe.

Poland is one of the fastest growing TEFL destinations in Europe due to its booming economy, cheap cost of living, and charming culture complete with historic old streets and bustling modern cities.

From the minute you’re approved, we will support you in obtaining the necessary visas and paperwork to work in Poland. Then you’ll work together with our support staff to land your dream teaching job in one of Poland’s exciting cities. In addition to a job we’ll also help you get setup with an apartment, bank account, phone plan, and everything else you need to get settled.

Our program allows you to work anywhere in Poland, not just in a specific school or position. Our teachers have worked with everyone, from the youngest of toddlers all the way to older business professionals. We’re all about helping you find what you do best. Uniquely, the visa you receive will allow you to legally work at multiple schools as well as do private tutoring to supplement your income.

Prior teaching experience is highly preferred

Schedule and Dates for teaching English in Poland

We recruit teachers year-round to satisfy the constant demand for English teachers in Poland. As our program is built on flexibility, you are welcome to start at any date that is convenient for you. However we highly encourage to time their arrival to Poland for the start of the new academic year in September, or the spring semester in February as there will be by far the most job vacancies during these time windows.

At the very minimum, we require a commitment of one semester, however schools will give a strong preference to applicants who are willing to commit for an entire academic year. There is no maximum duration that you can stay with our program.

If you are not an EU citizen, keep in mind that the visa process takes a minimum of 8 weeks, so be sure to apply early.
