Program Overview

Program Description:

The Teaching Assistant Program TAP5C* covers the needs and demands of today’s educational world. Many Spanish education centers have started to implement bilingual and multilingual programs for their students. Additionally, more and more graduates are choosing to come to Spain in order to improve their Spanish and develop themselves professionally.

TAP5C matches teaching assistants with schools in Andalucía and advises them on ways to promote the school’s bilingual program. SIGE helps schools make the most of their time with the teaching assistant.

The Teaching Assistant Program is not a job, but rather should be considered as an experience in a primary or secondary school. The participant will not sign a work contract. Instead, an agreement is made with schools supported by public funds. Therefore the participant will receive a Student Visa and will not require a Work Visa. The participant will be at their school for 12 hours and week and will be given a monthly stipend of 700€ that will cover living expenses.

All Program prices include a non-refundable fee of €150.

Setting Description:
Sevilla represents one of the richest Spanish cities and one of the most beautiful cities in the world where its cultural heritage is concerned: it was a magnificent Roman city; the Visigothic and Arabic capital; the most populated city in Europe in the XVI century; the gateway to the Americas, etc. It is a cultural attraction, a literary, musical and artistic city par excellence. However, it is also a city full of social contrasts. It has an aristocratic past and today is the political-administrative headquarters of Andalucía. People from different parts of the world, diverse races and socioeconomic status can be seen here. As you walk through the streets of Sevilla, you will be plunged into Spain’s wonderful culture edged with Moorish influences. An hour away by car from the local Spanish beaches of Costa de la Luz and Costa del Sol, and two hours and a quarter away from Madrid by train, it is easy to visit Sevilla and its neighboring cities and enjoy beautiful varied landscapes.
