Language assistants programme in Spain 2012-2013
The language and culture assistants programme is an initiative of the Spanish Ministry of Education devoted to providing scholarships for New Zealand university students (majoring in any subject) and graduates with some proficiency in Spanish. The Assistants will have the opportunity to teach English in Spain in primary, secondary and language schools.
Students will spend a full academic year, from October to May/June in Spain. Preferred placement in different Spanish regions can be requested.
At the same time, this program provides Spanish students and teachers of English in Spain the opportunity to study English in depth and to familiarise themselves with the New Zealand culture by interacting with New Zealand speakers.
The language assistants receive a scholarship which covers accommodation expenses (about 700 euros monthly), an orientation course and full medical insurance. Travel costs to and from the country of origin will be the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. Candidates must be New Zealand nationals, posses a university degree or be in their final bachelor’s year at the end of the academic year 2012 and be native speakers of English.
The 2012-2013 school year application deadline is March 31, 2012. There is no cost or fee to submit applications.
