The Spanish government organises a programme that allows Australian students or Australian graduates to work as English language assistants in Spain. Language assistants help teachers mainly with speaking or other group activities and do not teach entire classrooms by themselves; they are always supervised and supported by a teacher. Knowing Spanish is an advantage but it is not a requirement to participate in the programme.
English language assistants are placed at government primary, secondary, or language schools and usually work for up to 12 hours per week and they get a salary and medical insurance. The language assistants are placed at a school between September and May, although Australian applicants also have the option of starting in January instead of September.
