Spain the GAP
Creator of working gap year experiences.
Spain the Gap is now offering the gap year experience of a lifetime for qualified English teachers. Not only will you gain valuable teaching experience, but you will also be able to visit some of the greatest places Spain has to offer during your stay.
We are located in Spain, so the English that will be taught is, of course, as a second language. However, the specific students that would be given to the chosen candidates have been studying for a minimum of 5 years and the prepared lessons are to be given in a 100% English setting. All the specific material will be provided to the language instructors, as well as a brief training course to introduce them to our specific teaching methods. We are looking for qualified English-speaking teachers who would like to go abroad and gain a minimum of one year of experience in teaching English while taking advantage of a cultural immersion full of surprises.
Current vacancies are located in a small/medium-sized town with a population of approximately 45,000 inhabitants and is a 45-minute bus ride from Barcelona. In addition to being near Barcelona, the location is ideally located 30 minutes from the beach (summer sun) and 1h30 from the mountains (skis or snowboard?).
As for the work schedule, candidates will be required to work approximately 34 hours per week between Monday and Friday. The classes will be made up of approximately 6-8 students between the ages of 7 and 16 years old. The working calendar is equivalent to that of a public school in regards to public holidays as well as Christmas and Easter breaks which are standardised in Spain. This flexibility would not only allow the candidate to gain valuable work experience but would also provide enough downtime in order to experience another lifestyle and grow as a person in general.
In order to apply, please send an email to with your CV for more information. The position we are offering is a paid position with provided housing that is to be shared by others who are also chosen to take part in the program. The selection process will be very thorough in order to take into account the many factors that we consider to be vital to the success of this program.
We are specifically looking for dynamic, energetic, and enthusiastic people who are interested in experiencing one academic year abroad in order to grow professionally, as well as personally. All candidates, although not required, who have a university degree will have a preference as well as those who are enrolled or have finished a degree related to teaching.
