Applications to become an English Language Assistant are closed for the 2017/18 academic year.
What is it all about?
Being a Language Assistant is a fantastic way to teach English abroad, explore another country, experience a culture different to your own, and develop invaluable, transferable skills for the workplace. Language Assistants have been placed in schools and universities all over the world since 1905. The overwhelming reaction from our assistants on returning home is that the experience has changed their lives forever, complete with memories to last a lifetime. So, whether you are keen to gain some teaching experience or would like to improve your knowledge of another country, the Language Assistant programme has something to offer everyone.
There is no registration fee to apply and no formal Teaching English as a Foreign Language qualification is required either.
Where can I go?
We work with schools across four continents, right through from Europe, Asia to Latin America, so there’s something to suit even the most adventurous amongst you. Each year, there are usually about 2,500 posts available. You could find yourself supporting the teaching of English in a primary school, a secondary school or even a university. It all depends on where you decide to go.
