A language assistant helping a pupil

Mat Wright

Every year, around 2,500 language assistants from the UK support the teaching of English in 14 countries around the world. We offer the opportunity to teach English overseas on a paid six-month or one-year placement working as a language assistant.

As an English Language Assistant, you will strengthen your CV, improve your fluency in another language, gain a number of skills including communication, presentation, time management, organisation, teamwork, and problem-solving, immerse yourself in another culture and improve your cultural awareness and develop professional confidence.

Applications for the 2020-21 academic year are now closed. Applications for the 2021-2022 academic year will open later in the year.
