About Program

Thanks to its laidback lifestyle and friendly atmosphere, Spain has become a paradise for many ESL teachers who wish to live comfortably in Europe’s most affordable countries.

Demand for ESL teachers has been on the rise in Spain in recent years, be it in well-established schools or as ESL volunteer teachers working in Spanish classrooms throughout the country. We recommend the latter for those without previous teaching experience or qualifications, but we still encourage them to enroll in a TEFL course before teaching as well.

Licensed teachers can teach in Spain in private international schools, although they need to have at least 2-3 years of licensed teaching experience before applying. Likewise, it can be difficult to get a job teaching in Spain without an EU passport.
