The Market for English Teachers in Spain

Why now is a great time to get a TEFL certificate

5 Reasons Why English Teachers Are In Such Demand In Spain

  1. Spanish students need a B1 level in English in order to study at Spanish universities.
  2. Andalusia has one of the highest unemployment rates in Spain. This has resulted in a large number of adults considering emigrating to English speaking countries or countries where the local population have a high level of English.
  3. Spanish children study English from a young age and parents are increasingly enrolling their children in after-school English courses and bilingual schools
  4. International companies with offices in Spain generally require staff to haveĀ a high level of English.
  5. Language Assistant programmes regularly seek native-speaker teachers of English. Although a teaching qualification may not be required, many participants supplement their income through teaching in academies where an initial teaching qualification is generally required.

Which is great news for fluent English speakers with a TEFL qualification.

Although you can find work in the public sector, most English language teachers work in the private sector.
All over Spain – from big cities to small towns – you can find academies offering English language classes.
English is taught at school and universities but there is a feeling in Spain that this is not enough.

Where you can teach

English is taught at school and universities but there is a feeling in Spain that this is not enough.

Which is great for those of you who want to take advantage of the world-famous Spanish nightlife!
