There’s a lot of online info on teaching opportunities in Spain. In sum, the big three programmes are: (1) the Spanish Ministry of Education’s Auxiliar de Conversación (aka North American Language and Culture Assistants programme), (2) BEDA, and (3) UCETAM.
- Intermediate level Spanish is recommended (evident in the online application process of the big three being in Spanish), though not enforced.
- Non-EU passport holders can only teach via a programme and must go through an online application process. EU passport holders can fly into Spain, throw their CV around, and begin work.
- For EU passport holders who wish to find work via a programme (as oppose to communicating directly with a school), they need to contact their affiliated national agency. In the UK, it’s the British Council.
