Employment Information for Native English Speaking Teachers
Teachers at the American Language Center are dedicated and collegial professionals, with their students as their first interest.  They are also knowledgeable about current teaching methodologies and dedicated to their own professional development.  Together with ALC staff, they are committed to the mission of the school and use a variety of strategies to meet their objectives.
Work is mainly English teaching in the classroom, but may include facilitating activities, serving as a program coordinator, or assisting with other administration projects.  Most teaching takes place on weekday afternoons, evenings and on weekends.  Teachers that are new to Morocco are asked to arrive in advance of the term with time to find housing and participate in orientation and training.  All new teachers are required to attend the orientation program prior to their first term teaching.

Qualifications

•Minimum University Qualifications : Native speakers must have a bachelor’s degree and a teaching certificate (CELTA preferred). Teachers with a master’s in TESOL are preferred.

•Age : The ALC is the first to recognize the value and talent of older teachers, but the Moroccan Ministry of Labor will not issue a work permit to non-Moroccans aged 60 or older, which means we cannot offer positions to teachers 59 and older.

Nationality : A teacher must hold a passport from a country whose native language is English. Most of our visiting teachers come from the U.S., the U.K., Canada, or Australia.

•Teaching experience Ideally, teachers should have two years, full-time classroom experience, preferably in the EFL classroom.
Experience living abroad and the ability to adapt to Moroccan culture: Morocco has many wonderful aspects, but it can be a challenging place to live as well. We want visiting teachers to be content in their new surroundings so that they can give their best in class.

Salary and Benefits

Full-time salaries offered by the ALC Mohammedia allow teachers to live comfortably in Mohammedia and are commensurate with experience.  Salaries are in Moroccan dirhams, but foreign nationals may convert their earnings to foreign currency once they have been working in Morocco for 3 months. In addition to the basic salary, all teachers are offered medical insurance for a modest fee, which covers 80% of most medical and certain dental expenses.  Other benefits include a monthly housing stipend either as a direct benefit or a reduction in rent, a sick leave allowance (20 hours per year), vacation pay, an end-of-contract airfare stipend, and access to free French classes through our French program. Support for professional development is provided in the form of free training, regular workshops, and a free trip to the annual All-ALC TEFL Conference.
In general, ALC teachers manage to live in a decent apartment, eat well and have enough to eat out and to travel occasionally. That being said, coming to the ALC with the intention of saving much money is not realistic. Furthermore, if you have other financial obligations, i.e. student loans, you will may find it difficult to meet these obligations on your work salary alone. It cannot be emphasized enough that this is not a job for people who have debt that they need to pay back or for people who need to save a lot of money. Also, it can take months to get a permanent residence card, and without this card you cannot open a bank account; and therefore, you cannot wire money home.

Application Process

• a CV / resume

• a copy of the front page of your passport (scanned)

• a carefully composed letter telling us about yourself, including briefly why you would like to teach at the ALC

Recruitment normally takes place in late winter and early spring for the academic year that begins the following autumn.  However, you are free to apply at any time.  We regret that we are not able to respond to every inquiry, but will strive to do so for all qualified candidates.
