We have finished assigning positions for the school year 2015-2016. We will probably start accepting applications for the school year 2016-2017 in January 2016. The exact dates of the new application period will be announced here. By now, as an orientation, you can take a look at the application guidelines from last year. Although we do not expect big changes, the application guidelines will be updated and may include variations.
Application Guidelines 2015-2016 (to be updated for 2016-2017)
Education Office contacts in the USA and Canada.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: During the current campaign for the Language Assistant Program 2015-2016, we have discovered that there are fraudulent online application forms that forge the corporate identity of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport for unlawful purposes. These false application forms send you to a website containing a form that asks for bank information for you to make payment for registration in the program, flights, etc.
The Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport reminds candidates that registration in the program is FREE and WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR OR REQUIRE ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION ABOUT BANK CARDS AND/OR ACCESS CODES NOR WILL WE DEMAND ANY PAYMENT through electronic mail or any other means.
Please, ADDRESS YOUR QUESTIONS TO YOUR CORRESPONDING CONSULATE for your visa application. The staff of the Consulates will be happy to assist you in this process.
Remember, you will not be able to work on your visa or your appointment with your Consulate until you receive a formal acceptance letter specifying your assignment (carta de nombramiento) from the Regional Office of Education (Consejería de Educación) in Spain. Your contact person in your Comunidad Autónoma will be able to help with this important document.
If you have questions about your specific assignment, please send an email to the contact person/email address provided: CONTACT COMUNIDADES AUTÓNOMAS
Those candidates who fail to accept or decline within three days after the electronic notification of their assignment will be automatically withdrawn by PROFEX, and WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY ASSIGNMENT FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR.
However, we understand that for some of you, some unforseen circumstances may lead you to decline an assignment even after you accepted it. If you have to decline, please inform us at your earliest convenience by sending an email to: email@example.com
In your email, please include the following information:
a. Your first and last name.
b. Your inscripción number.
c. The region you were assigned to.
d. The reason why you had to decline your assignment.
If you inform us in a timely fashion and justify your withdrawal from the program, this will not have a negative impact on your application in forthcoming years, and somebody else will be able to take your spot.
Thank you for your understanding and for informing us!
Candidates are kindly asked to address us any doubt not included in the Manual.
