Diverbo – More than Pueblo Inglés

Spanish students reported that their hundreds of hours of traditional class do not prepare them for putting their language skills into practice in their daily use of the language, their trips abroad, nor at business meetings or conference calls. The frustration and anxiety that they felt while trying to express themselves had to be addressed! As a result Pueblo Inglés created an immersion course, where students could practice conversation English among English natives in beautiful Spanish countryside venues.

Diverbo ReceptionistOur company has been running “Pueblo Inglés” programs since July 2001 and thanks to our 12,000 English natives that have been involved, we have made it a more than English experience for our students!  This program is unique and anyone who has been spent 8 days with us can confirm this!  But what else do we offer that makes working for us a bit different?

Since 2003, we TEACH English to students who work in the most prestigious companies in Madrid.  Because we are young,  we are still very energetic and strive to provide an English language experience that goes beyond the traditional learning methodologies.

We customize our programs, collaborate with the best English teachers in Madrid, train them to give them the personal touch to fit the client’s needs. The result:  We provide a personalized service – and our clients and teachers are hooked to the English learning experience!

Since October 2012, we have expanded to new horizons by adding other languages to our portfolio:  French, German, Spanish and Chinese.
The Pueblo Ingles program is still the essence of who we are, but to include these new languages and different ways of communicating, from now we will be Diverbo. A new name conveying diversity, fun and language, the foundations on which we started with Pueblo Ingles eleven years ago.

We offer:

  • Centrally located offices where teachers can use facilities to prepare their classes.
  • A young yet professional and  friendly working environment, which is important to create a sense of community within our teacher network.
  • Training and workshops for all the teachers
  • Support  from the Academic  Department
  • Continuous follow-up and performance appraisal, with pay revision
  • A selection of material available, both ours and from other publishers, which will help reinforce everything that needs to be transmitted in class (grammar, reading, vocabulary and listening material for each level).
  • The opportunity to teach in different types of programs. We have  in-company claseses, but  we also offer 1 or 2 day seminars, weekly intensive courses, a Masters program (9 months), residential courses (weekend and weekly), Kids & Teen camp. 
    Check all the details here: http://www.diverbo.com/en/jobs
    For newbies: we provide a welcome pack on how to get around in the tedious paperwork when first starting to teach!
  • Pay - all our teachers HAVE TO BE OFFICIAL FREELANCE/ AUTOMONO. We offer competitive rates – depending on class location, the type of course and the teacher’s experience.



FAQs:



Diverbo Classroom

When can teachers start?
Our high peak recruiting season is in September/October and January/February, but we recruit year-round if work is available.

  • In-company classes:  On-going. The cores of the classes go from September or October until the end of June or July. Nevertheless, depending on demand, courses can start anytime during the year. January is also one of the peak moments of the year.
  • We have groups of the different Masters programs starting in: February, and October.
  • Seminars: Throughout the year.
  • Residential Courses, "Villa Inglesa": Almost every week and weekend throughout the year, including the summer.
  • Kids and Teens: summer months;  Day Camps during the school year;  Weekends.

Do teachers have to be an autónomo or can I work under a contract?
All of our teachers collaborate with us as "autónomos" (freelance) because they rate per hour even after paying social security is higher and it allows teachers to collaborate with other companies.

How do teachers get paid?
Like other freelances and external suppliers – as “autónomos”, teachers bill us at the end of the month for the hours they have taught with our clients. Taxes are automatically deducted at 15% at billing and Social Security (between 180€ and 260€ a month) is paid separately.

Diverbo Reception

Do teacher need to speak Spanish?
In the case of our ESL teachers, no. In fact we prefer that our teachers have a low level of Spanish or do not speak it at all. Teachers with a high level tend to translate in class, which is detrimental to the students’ listening comprehension and learning of vocabulary.


Can we collaborate with non–EU workers?
Teachers posses an EU passport or an EU work permit. Furthermore, to set up the autonomo status, teachers must have a valid residency card which contains an NIE number (Numero de Identidad Extranjero) and paying taxes in Spain.

Employment Information:

Qualification requirements for employment?
Most of the teachers have university degrees, and/or a CELTA certificate, which is highly valued.

Experience requirements for employment?
Depends on the course and classes assigned.

Hire at a distance?
We can do a first screening interview by phone/Skype, but eventually we only collaborate with teachers who are already living in Spain because a face-to-face interview is required. We recruit many of our teachers from our selection of volunteers in Pueblo Inglés.

Hire Americans and do their papers?
Unfortunately no, but they are more than welcome to volunteer in our Pueblo Inglés immersion course!

Preference for British or Americans? Why?
None. It’s the clients' requests that matter most. If a client requests a particular accent, Pueblo Inglés does its best to comply.

We do however require native or totally bilingual teachers.

Estimated teachers hired yearly:
Currently have over 50 collaborators.

Teachers at Pueblo Inglés for over 4 years?
Yes, more than half of the staff.

Number of students:
Over 2,000 in teaching, over 10,000 in our immersion courses.

Best part about working at Pueblo Inglés:
The best recommendation that can be given to Pueblo Inglés is that their own teachers give them a lot of word-of-mouth and attract other teachers there. It's a good company which provides a lot of support for their teachers. They feel like they are a part of a company in which all of the parts are inter-connected and equally important.

Of course, the staff makes every effort to get their client companies to block their hours, and not unmotivate teachers by sending them on 3-hour bus rides just to do hour-long classes.

Other Benefits?
Teachers who stick around a second year get better blocks and salaries, depending on the evaluations and management of administrative tasks such as handing in papers at the end of every month. Pueblo Inglés respects seniority and people who do a good job. There are also good prospects for promotion.

Offer teacher training or development along with job?
Yes, the duration depends on the teachers experience.

Starters' average salary?
Teachers make between 19 and 25 euros an hour / gross depending on a number of factors such as experience of the teacher and location, length and type of the classes.

    Diverbo English Teacher in Villa Inglesa:

    VILLA INGLESA, the intensive residential program that takes place in our rural hotel in Segovia (Casón de la Pinilla).

    Program Objectives:

    Only one out of every ten Spaniards can honestly say they speak English if the question is asked in a job interview. The objective during our grammar programmes is for each student to learn enough to handle any situation comfortably, even a job interview.

    The starting point when a student sign up to this course is a personalised evaluation of the client’s level of English. After studying his/her needs and availability, we design a customised course that will help to:

  • Gain more agility in the grammar structure.
  • Gain fluency and confidence when speaking in English.
  • Once we know a student’s level and his or her needs, we set objectives for their 5-day or weekend programme and create a study plan to ensure that they are met. Each group (made up of 2 to 4 students with a similar level) will be assigned the same number of teachers of different nationalities and backgrounds in order to expose the students to an array of accents and approaches.

    Our intensive English programmes cover a wide range of needs (if the client specifies); commercial, financial, technical or any other type of English a student may require. Otherwise, we follow a GRAMMAR and ORAL fluency-based program according the students level.

    There are two residential formats:

    Weekly – 5 days, from Sunday to Friday:
    A combination of 35 hours of classroom English with another 35 hours of social English.

    Weekend - 2 days, from Friday to Sunday:
    A combination of 12 hours of classroom English with another 16 hours of social English.

    As a new teacher, you will be working as an observer/collaborator the very first time getting half the pay. You can read all about it here:
