The Finnish School in Leeds

The Finnish School in Leeds offers Finnish language and cultural education for both adults and children in a friendly, informal environment. The children's classes involve various theme-based language learning activities, singing, dancing, games and crafts. Most of the children we teach are bilingual and the School provides an important way to support their Finnish language skills and awareness of their cultural heritage. The adults’ group offers more structured language lessons for anyone wishing to learn Finnish and we seek to cater for all levels, from beginners to more advanced learners.

Once face-to-face teaching is allowed, our classes will run roughly every other Saturday, 10am-12pm, at St Luke's Lutheran Church, 9 Alma Rd, Leeds LS6 2AH. We have two terms: September to December and January to June.

During the classes we run a small café providing Finnish coffee and home baked goods. A couple of times a year we also seek to organise various outdoor based activities, excursions or events for our community.

The Finnish Saturday School in Leeds is looking for a native speaker to teach Finnish to a group of ca. 10 school-aged children, most of whom are bilingual in English and Finnish, starting in September. The lessons run every other Saturday (dates tbc), 10am-12noon with a break in between, in Headingley. The teacher is expected to plan, prepare and deliver the lessons, however the School committee will help with the planning and there are lots of pre-existing materials to support the teaching. In the past lessons have normally comprised of some language learning activities combined with crafts, singing, games etc, but we are always open to new ideas.  No teaching experience is necessary, but we are looking for someone with a positive attitude, creativity and who enjoys working with children. We are a friendly group of people, and the School operates in a very informal environment.  The salary is £40-50 per session. If you’re interested or would...
