What are English Teaching Jobs in Spain like?

  • Most English teachers teach 20-25 hours a week in a private language school and/or as a private tutor + an additional 8-10 hours a week lesson planning.

  • You don't need a degree in education or prior professional teaching experience, but TEFL certification is required to provide you with the skills & qualification you need to get hired as an English teacher in Spain & up to 80 countries worldwide.

  • Typical first-time English teacher in a major city like Madrid & Barcelona will earn 13-20 euro per hour or 1000-1300 euro per month; this is enough to cover basic expenses (rent, transport, food, etc), in addition to going out several times a week and regional travel on weekends or holidays.

  • Most English teachers will interview locally in Spain in September/ October & again in January; International TEFL Academy provides our students & graduates with the resources, contacts & guidance needed to set up interviews.

  • The Spanish Government's “Cultural Ambassadors” program recruits Americans to teach as part-time assistant teachers in Spanish grade schools and high schools.  Applicants apply by mid-April for positions beginning the following fall (this is one case where you do not have to go to Spain to interview in person).  Pay is lower, but participants do receive some benefits like basic health insurance and work visa sponsored by the program.
