Americans teaching English in Spain
« on: August 31, 2012, 12:45:23 AM »
Greetings-
I'm new to this site.  I wanted to know if anyone is aware of a site that lists teaching opportunities for American to teach in Spain?  I have visited sites, but unfortunately most listings require an EU passport.
Thank you,
Roderick

To the best of my knowledge, due to visa issues, there are very few programs or schools legally employing non-EU citizens.

There are, however, a few options:
1. The "North American Language and Culture Assistants" program, sponsored by the central government. They bring over a thousand young people to Spain to work 12-16 hrs/week for 700-1000 eur./month. More information can be found here: http://www.educacion.gob.es/eeuu/convocatorias-programas/convocatorias-eeuu/auxiliares-conversacion-eeuu.html

2. The association of Catholic schools in Madrid also hires language assistants: http://www.ecmadrid.org/beda/Auxiliares%20de%20conversacion/iwant.html

3. A company called "Red Leaf" http://red-leaf.com/ is hiring North Americans to work in Cantabria 30 hrs/week for 1100+/- a month.


If you are a certified teacher, there are a number of American and/or international schools across Spain. The American embassy has a pretty complete list of these schools.

Best of luck!

I will have to research this more.  I am just learning more about international schools and the degree/certification requirements but I have not done official research just yet.  I take it that if one goes this route, you don't have the same issues with getting a working holiday visa in Spain or other European countries as a American?
