Teaching assistant leading a lesson.

Applications for the Modern Language Assistants programme 2019-20 will close at 16.00 on Friday 27 September 2019.

Language assistants are native speakers of French, Spanish, German, Italian, Mandarin Chinese and Irish who can help students in UK primary and secondary schools develop language skills and understand other cultures.

With up-to-date knowledge of their local culture and language, they can also help revitalise the skills of language teachers.
