The SVS School for English was set up in 2006 with the aim of enabling Sri Lankans and expatriates living in Sri Lanka to develop vital, empowering English language skills to develop their confidence, to widen access to an international job market, and support them in becoming successful global citizens.
A registered charity, the English school was set up and is run by cousins Sebastian Lawrance and Mark Snellgrove, British expatriates who have called Sri Lanka home for over 20 years.

When you’re part of SVS School for English, you’re part of a family. The English school in Colombo is run according to family values, creating a close-knit, homely environment where students feel safe and supported as they build their English language skills. Students and teachers work together in class towards our vision of giving people across Sri Lanka the chance to develop their knowledge of English, the global link language.

Job Description

Creating an engaging and effective ESL (English as a Second Language) classroom requires a teacher who is not only proficient in English but also energetic and dynamic in their teaching approach. We are looking for an energetic ESL teacher who brings enthusiasm and vitality to the classroom, making learning a lively and enjoyable experience for students of all ages and backgrounds. This role involves more than just teaching grammar and vocabulary; it requires a passion for fostering a multicultural and inclusive environment where every student feels valued and motivated to learn.
The chosen ESL teacher will play a crucial role in building students' confidence in using English in real-life situations. This involves encouraging participation and creating a supportive classroom atmosphere where mistakes are seen as learning opportunities. Collaboration with colleagues is also a key aspect of this role. Ultimately, we need an energetic ESL teacher who inspires a love of learning and cultural exchange, equipping students with the linguistic tools and confidence to navigate a globalized world.
Native-level English speakers only.
