Explore is an intensive, government-funded immersion program offered during the spring and summer in exciting locations across the country. The sessions are taught at accredited institutions, and students live on campus. Destination Clic is an experiential summer program for francophone students living outside Quebec. The program is aimed at nurturing their sense of belonging and identity with the francophone community and enhancing their French-speaking skills.

The Explore and Destination Clic programs at Glendon are looking for dynamic and dedicated individuals for the role of teacher. The goal is to provide our participants with an inclusive, safe, engaging, and immersive experience in French and in English. Participants from both programs attend classes, workshops, seminars, and socio-cultural activities while living on campus.

As a teacher, your primary responsibility will be to create engaging lesson plans to nurture the participants’ interest in learning their second language or, in the case of FFL, to nurture their sense of belonging to and identity with their francophone community. With the help of the language monitors, program coordinator, and curriculum developer, you will be supported in every step of the way.

The ESL and FSL Explore programs will be held from May 22 to June 23 (spring session) and July 3 to August 4, and July 9 to 29 (summer sessions). The Destination Clic FFL program will also be held from July 9 to 29. You will be working 20 hours per week for the duration of the program. There is also a mandatory training session the week before the official start of each program. Remuneration will be based on qualifications and experience and starts at $35.00 per hour.


Any interested candidates should send their resume and cover letter to Katie Ablett, Director of Continuing Education and Business Development at before April 30, 2023.
