Youth Development and Education internships in Spain offer a broad scope of placement opportunities that may be related to both private schools and NGOs.
Private schools in Valencia offer bilingual Spanish and English education at both the pre-school and primary levels. Therefore, these placements are great options for international interns who are not fully fluent in Spanish, but would like to enhance their language skills in order to further their professional development and career opportunities. Interns may assist both Spanish classroom teachers and English classroom teachers.
Interns can expect to assist with one-on-one reading, oral presentations, individual group work, and can provide classroom assistance on the subjects of cooking, art and sports. Interns can also support low ability students and provide additional supervision to students who need the additional support.
Intern duties can also be related to classroom administration, as assigned by the classroom teacher (such as preparing learning material and helping with classroom decoration).
The internship role varies, depending on the academic calendar. From September through the end of June, school is in session and the internship role will be related to classroom activities. The summer holidays begin at the end of June and summer camps are held for students during July and August. (No new interns are permitted to join the program during July and August). There is a three-week break over Christmas and New Years. Expected hours of assistance for interns are related to the school schedule, which may vary but is typically 9 a.m. till 4 or 5 pm.
|For all interns with an interest in developing skills as an educator, we also recommend an interactive Online TEFL Certification Course. The training offers tools and techniques over a 100-hour program. Upon completion, you’ll have earned experience in planning, designing, and adapting diverse language activities and materials. No previous teaching experience or training is required. You can sign up for the Online TEFL Certification Course anytime and you’ll pay the discounted Intern Abroad HQ rate.|
