How do I apply?

If you are interested in becoming a Language Assistant then check back here in October, when we open for applications. 

Before you apply

While you are waiting for the application process to open, take a look at the Where can I go?, What will I do? and Am I eligible? pages to find out more about becoming a Language Assistant. Deciding on where to travel will give you the opportunity to get a head start on learning about the country and its language.

Also take a look at the British Council Voices blog to read about the experiences of other Language Assistants.

Assessment days

Candidates who pass the first stage of selection for posts in China, Switzerland, Canada and Latin America will be invited to attend a compulsory assessment day. These will take place between January and March 2016 and in various locations across the UK – exact dates and locations will be confirmed.

The assessments will last a full day and consist of group activities in the morning and individual interviews in the afternoon. Candidates are expected to cover any costs for travel.
