The Language and Culture Assistants Programme is an initiative of the Spanish Ministry of Education.

-One semester (from January to May or June 2021)

-Be required to work only between 12-16 hours, 4 days per week, allowing lots of time to travel through Spain and Europe.

Candidates must be:

-NZ citizens under 60 years of age,

-Speakers of English as their first language

-Be in their second year of studies or over.  

Some knowledge of Spanish would be useful but is not compulsory.
