Our Careers Service

There´s is a big demand for English teachers in Spain. Compared to other European countries, the level of English here is quite low, so Spaniards need to improve their English in order to gain university entry and find a good job in Spain or abroad. This means there are plenty of  TEFL jobs in Spain!

The most important part of getting TEFL qualified is finding a job when it’s all over. We help you throughout the course and beyond to develop a foundation to be successful in the TEFL job market.

Our Careers Service include:

CV writing & interview preparation

During the course we provide a 2 hour work shop specifically designed to prepare your teaching CV, application cover letter and provide you with information and tips about finding employment in your preferred area.

Teaching practice

Throughout the course you will be required to participate in observed teaching practice, which will give you invaluable experience when contacting potential employers. After the course we offer you the option of some unobserved teaching as a qualified teacher so the experience can be added to your CV.

Accredited Certificate

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be awarded with aa accredited certificate from Trinity College London that will give you the upper hand when searching for a position in Spain and worldwide.

Letter of recommendation and referees

At the end of the TEFL course you will be presented with an official letter of recommendation. And, of course, we will act as referees for you!

Nina Krol completed her Trinity CertTESOL course on the 31st August 2018:

I found career services to be very helpful after completing the TEFL course! During the career services session you learn about so many things, including how to draft a CV and cover letter specifically for teaching positions, and what platforms to use when looking for and applying for jobs. The best part is that when you finish the course, you are added to a private Facebook page just for TEFL graduates, with multiple job openings being posted each day. Career services is always available to you even after you finish the TEFL course, and Esme is so encouraging and supportive! I was able to find a teaching position in an academy in Malaga, Spain within 2 weeks of finishing the course. I have just finished my first week of teaching at the academy, and I am really enjoying it!

Mathilda Marshall completed her Trinity CertTESOL course on the 3rd march 2017:

I found the careers service to be very helpful! I had no idea of the range of classes a teacher can cater to, let alone how to write a CV for any of them! The prospect of teaching is daunting, whether a rowdy class or a single student, and having the support of such confident, bubbly people does wonders to dispel the fear of being unprepared. I have the careers service to thank for everything! I really appreciated the CV building  with Esme. I had NO idea how to write a CV, what potential employers would be looking for or how to phrase all the skills imparted from the course. I would recommend a hundred times over to anyone.
