Each year the Centre for Global Engagement offers native speakers of various languages the chance to participate in free professional tutor training and language teaching practice.
Being a tutor is an extremely rewarding experience, so if you are a native speaker of a foreign language and passionate about sharing your language and culture, we would love to hear from you.
What's on offer
Trainee language tutors will receive:
- Tutor training for 3 weeks intensively (in July) or for 12 weeks (from October)
- An exciting opportunity to pass on your language and cultural knowledge
- Opportunities for paid work on successful completion of the course
The tutor training will cover topics such as student-centred learning, class dynamics and interaction. You will also cover digital learning and teaching, which will help you to develop and improve your communication, leadership, and organisational skills. In turn this will improve your understanding and knowledge of other cultures.
Please note that applications for trainee language tutors are NOW OPEN. Recruitment takes place in March and September each year.

What our tutors say
I remember the little teaching experience I had when I first started - the lack of confidence would surely not help me become a wonderful tutor. However, I have been fortunate enough to take part in this incredible training for tutors that Linguae Mundi offers. It has been a fantastic opportunity so far and I am positive it will be a valuable asset and recommendation for any future jobs I plan on applying for. I have completely changed as a professional person and developed my interpersonal and work skills as well as cultural awareness greatly. I strongly believe that Linguae Mundi is a brilliant program for both students and tutors.
