Careers Service

At Active Language we understand that nearly everybody approaches their TEFL course focused on the job prospects at the end. Our Careers Service team is ideally positioned to help you achieve your goals, offering both individual and personalised career guidance and life-long support, and extensive employment connections all over the world, throughout Spain and especially in Andalusia.

Working as a TEFL Teacher in Spain and in Andalusia

We are proud of the quality teachers who come through our TESOL courses, proud of our membersip of national (FECEI) and regional (ACEIA) associations and networks and, most importantly, proud to be confident in your ability to find work.

Despite the current economic situation, Spanish people are moving forward by investing in their own education, especially learning English. Spanish universities require students to reach a B1 foreign language level before completing a degree. This is generating a higher demand for English teachers in Spain. So, at the moment, language schools in Spain are actively looking for teachers and there are currently more jobs than teachers, which places all of our graduates in an excellent position.

We are able to offer extensive employment connections all over the world, throughout Spain and especially in Andalusia. The overwhelming majority of graduates who are looking for work in Spain and receive individual and personalised career guidance are successful.

On top of this, the Careers Service provides Student Visa & Work Permit Assistance for Non-EU Applicants that would like to legally work in Spain for up to 20 hours per week.
