Coach abroad โ€“ย A recruitment drive is underway for experienced multi-sports teachers who aspire to enhance their coaching skills on an international platform. This exceptional opportunity allows individuals to break free from their familiar surroundings and embark on a coaching journey in a foreign country. Successful candidates will have the privilege of coaching football in public schools during the day and academies in the evening, striking a perfect balance between two diverse coaching environments.

Public School Coaching

The position involves collaborating with elementary and middle schools in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province, South Korea, where English-speaking multi-sports classes are offered throughout the week. The primary objective in these schools is to conduct sports classes in an English-speaking setting, encouraging student participation in physical activities while simultaneously improving their English language proficiency. This role presents an invaluable chance to gain practical experience in teaching and coaching within a school-based environment, making it particularly advantageous for aspiring teachers and those seeking career advancement in coaching.

Academy Coaching

Five days a week, we conduct academy sessions tailored to children aged 4-14, focusing on football-specific training. The participants are grouped by age for effective coaching. Although the sessions are more advanced than those in public schools, the emphasis remains on English language acquisition through football. As coaches, we deliver football training sessions while conversing in English, enabling the children to absorb the language effortlessly through their engagement in the sport. It’s a simple yet effective approach.
