Teaching Assistants in France – now open

Applications for the 2019 round of the English Language Teaching Assistants programs in Metropolitan France and overseas departments are now open!

 

This program is designed to give students the opportunity to discover a new region and culture by working alongside an English teacher in a French school environment. It is not aimed at experienced teachers, and whether or you intend to become a language teacher, it is a fantastic opportunity to gain seven months of paid international experience, which is invaluable on a student’s CV.

 

All information, including details of the role, the contract, eligibility requirements and how to apply are available on the embassy’s website here:
