– FEATURES & BENEFITS –

FULL TEFL CERTIFICATION 

The TEFL course in Madrid consists of 4 weeks training, and normally runs from 09:30 am to 19:00 pm (with breaks involved of course!) Once you have passed the course, you will have a full TEFL certificate meaning you can teach English anywhere in the world.

For non-EU citizens, we have a visa program which lasts for one year. It consists of the 4 week TEFL training course as above, and 36 weeks of Spanish and cultural classes which run part time (20 hours per week). With this student visa you are also allowed to work for 20 hours per week which fits around your study and leisure time perfectly!

ACCOMMODATION ASSISTANCE IS PROVIDED FOR THE 4 WEEKS TRAINING

Accommodation can be arranged during the training period and is around 500 Euros per month. This is a shared student apartment with full WiFi, and cleaning included in the rate. After the course, most employers will assist you in finding accommodation near to the place of work. Accommodation is normally not included when offered a teaching job in Spain but it is not too expensive at around 400 Euros per month for a single room/ shared apartment. You can save money if you opt to live with other teachers, if that is available.

A GUARANTEED PAID JOB TEACHING ENGLISH

Our team in Madrid will assist you in getting the right job. The job guarantee is exactly that – we guarantee that you will get a job. We will show you where to look for jobs and have links with many agencies and language schools in Spain. It’s common for people to secure a job between 0-30 days after the TEFL training. We make sure that through the Skype interview that you will be the right kind of person for teaching in Spain, so if you get through that stage you will have no worries. Commonly there are more jobs than teachers available!

Jobs pay around 1000 – 1350 EUR per month and are between 20 – 25 hrs per week. City placements and large companies can pay more and jobs in more rural areas pay a little less. Jobs are mostly available in language centres and are all year round. Language centres provide teaching to all ages, from primary classes to adults, and you can be required to teach any day of the week, but most jobs give two days off per week.

TRAIN WITH LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE

There will be another 5 trainees on your course who are all in the same boat – they have come to Europe to train in TEFL and gain life experience by exploring another culture. In this environment it’s easy to make friends. You can play hard as you study hard in becoming the best teacher you can be.

Many people you meet in the first few weeks of training become friends for your lifetime of teaching in Spain and beyond.

COST OF LIVING

You can normally save about one third of your salary each month, which can be anything from 1000 –  1350 EUR per month.

Accommodation is generally 400 EUR per month and you can opt to share apartments to cut your costs whilst you’re living and working in Spain. The team in Madrid will assist you in securing accommodation throughout the process.
