The application period for the school year 2015-2016 is now closed. We are currently assigning positions and have reached application number 5111. Check your email frequently, as offers are made via email.
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 note that once you submit your application, you can no longer modify or edit it. Before submitting your application, please revise all the information carefully and make sure all the documents have been uploaded.
No change in your region preference order will be granted after you have submitted your application.
You can follow the selection process on PROFEX. First, all the documents will be verified and we will check that you are eligible for the program ("admitida'). Once the status of your application is 'admitida', you will have to wait to receive an assignment (typically mid-April).
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.
Please, read the instructions below on how to accept your assignment in PROFEX. You must accept within the first three days of the electronic notification of your assignment: How to accept your assignment in PROFEX
Please, follow these instructions in detail to succeed in the acceptance of your assignment. On occassion, PROFEX can experience technical difficulties. Please, give it a few minutes and revisit the instructions on how to accept your assignment to make sure you are doing it correctly.
If you have questions about your specific assignment, the specific city or town where you will be located, the Fall Orientation for the new auxiliares, or any other information regarding the Autonomía where you just accepted your position, please, send an email to the contact person/email address provided: CONTACT COMUNIDADES AUTÓNOMAS
Your assignment has ben granted based on the preferences you expressed in your application, and the availability in the different Comunidades Autónomas. We have always tried to give you one of your top choices, but it has not always been possible, particularly during the last couple of weeks, when a lot of the regions had no positions left.
No changes in the region of your assignment are possible. Exchanging positions with candidates in different regions is not possible, either.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
If you want to update your passport number, please write an email to email@example.com
If you just received an assignment, please wait patiently for your carta de nombramiento. Communicate with your contact in your Comunidad Autónoma and tell them when you will be arriving.
Write to your U.S. / Canadian Regional Education Advisor for assistance obtaining an earlier appointment at your Consulate if there is the option.
