Why choose Italy?
- The rich diversity of Italian cultural heritage, its scenic beauty and modern cities make Italy a fascinating place. From the historical sights of Rome to the picturesque lakes, you’ll never be short of somewhere to spend your free time
- You’ll get the chance to experience Italy’s world class cuisine first hand
- You can explore the fascinating contrasts between the north and south of the country in terms of landscape, economy and way of life.
There are around 50 posts a year available in Italy in schools across the country. The majority of these posts are at secondary level although there are a small number of posts available in primary schools.
We prioritise applications from undergraduates who are studying Italian at a UK university and for whom it is compulsory to spend a year abroad. However, we will also accept applications from finalists and graduates.
Competition for posts in Italy is high and it is unlikely that we will be able to confirm any posts for finalists and graduates before July.
The general terms for a placement in Italy are:
Dates of appointment: 1 October – 31 May
Hours: 12 per week
Pay: €850 per month net
Other benefits: Some schools offer free meals and accommodation.
