Assistants interested in a post in Latin America may choose from four available countries: Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico. Each country offers a wonderful opportunity to discover the Latin American way of life, as well as plenty of time to travel across the continent.
In previous years we offered posts in Chile but unfortunately due to the closure of the British Council in Chile the programme there has been suspended.
Only holders of a UK passport may apply to Argentina, and undergraduates studying a dual-language degree will be prioritised for posts
Applicants to Colombia will preferably have studied languages at University level and will have a minimum of six months of teaching experience.
- start dates vary by country and your availability over the summer, when the majority of placements start, may affect your choices. Ensure that you would be available for the assigned start date and if relevant, the compulsory induction course. You should not apply for a country if you know you are unable to start on the assigned starting date
- your knowledge of the Spanish language will be assessed using the details provided in your application in the ‘languages’ and ‘education’ sections. If it is unclear from your application how you have obtained the stated level, we will contact you directly to confirm this.
