Every year more schools all over the world look for a native or native-level English teacher not only to help their students with the pronunciation and language skills, but also to promote a real cultural immersion and knowledge of their countries. In the current setting, teaching abroad opportunities have increased.
When considering teaching jobs abroad, hundreds of qualified Irish and British teachers finally decide to come to Spain. Salaries in both public and private schools are set by the government. Other European countries might offer higher salaries for teacher jobs, but due to our quality of life, unique culture (and weather!), and cheaper cost of life compared to the UK or Ireland, this decision is worth it.
- To be an English, French or German native OR native level speaker (C2).
- To have a recognized Qualified Early Years, Primary or Secondary Teacher Status in an EU country or to be able to obtain it before the first teaching day.
- To be an EU citizen or to have a valid EU working visa.
- Previous teaching experience is valued, but not required.
If you don’t meet these requirements, you might be interested in becoming a Meddeas Language Assistant instead.
