Milano - San Donato has been an affiliate member of the International House World Organisation for over 20 years. We are an authorized Cambridge English Language Assessment Platinum centre and an authorized IDP IELTS centre carrying out more than 12,000 Cambridge Exams and IELTS tests combined per year. IH Milano-San Donato is an established and well-known school in the city, offering general English and business English both online and face-to-face, exam preparation, and YL courses both on site and in state schools. We have a thriving teacher training department which runs 8 CELTA courses per year as well as annual DELTA module 1 and 2 courses. We pride ourselves on continuous professional development and provide a rich schedule for our teaching staff. Our San Donato premises is located in a quiet suburb just 8 metro stops from the city centre, while our Brenta premises is located in a residential neighbourhood on the same metro line. Both are purpose-built.
Milan is the financial heart of Italy and a European capital of the fashion industry. It is stylish, innovative, creative, and always on the move. From the elegant city centre to the charming Naviglio canal district to the latest neighbourhood gentrification project, there are always pleasant surprises to be found in Milan. World-class museums, fashion, and theatre are the norm, but so are hidden corners, secret gardens, and artisanal shops. In Milan, aperitivo is an institution, looking good is an art form, and the lack of a parking space is a chance to get creative!
Are you looking for a management role in Italy? We are looking for an enthusiastic and inspirational Director of Studies to help our teachers to be their best and to ensure high quality delivery of our courses. The Director of Studies manages a team of approximately 10 teachers and a YL coordinator and while overseeing the planning and development of courses for adults, teens, and young learners (YL). The ideal candidate will be a motivated self-starter who is a team player able to make independent decisions and use their own initiative.
Please contact our Deputy Director, Sarah Stats, firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss this role and for a full job description.
About the school and city
IH Milan was founded in 1982 by Sieglinde Wolkan and Claudio Tedesco, and they still run the school today. There are two main premises - one in the city centre (just a stone’s throw from the Duomo Cathedral) and one in San Donato Milanese.
CELTA courses are held at a purpose-built centre located a convenient 100 meters from the Brenta metro stop. Brenta is centrally located and easy to reach via a metro from Duomo.
Teacher training is key to what the school does, and since 2007 IH Milan has organised a conference for teachers from the state and private schools sector. This conference, dedicated to the teaching of languages, attracts internationally renowned speakers and really does put IH Milan on the TEFL map.
Away from these big events, IH Milan is a working language school and teacher training centre which maintains a friendly, supportive and positive atmosphere.
