Visiting Spanish Teacher Scheme


Post-Primary Languages Ireland:

An Expression of Interest form in The Visiting Spanish Teacher Scheme is now open. This is a pilot venture between the Department of Education (DoE) in Ireland and the Ministry of Education and Culture of Spain (MECS).

This programme has been created to address the shortage of qualified Spanish teachers in Ireland. Similar programmes have been running successfully in other jurisdictions for many years. In addition, the programme offers students in Irish post-primary schools the opportunity to learn how to interact, communicate, understand, and respect other cultures and gives schools the opportunity to develop relationships and exchanges with the Spanish schools that these teachers are coming from.

The Visiting Teacher from Spain Programme will provide Irish schools with the opportunity to fill existing vacant Spanish teaching positions. The programme offers you the opportunity to recruit highly qualified Spanish teachers for a period of up to two years.  Visiting teachers from Spain are certified Spanish language teachers with a minimum of two years of experience.

The Visiting Teachers from Spain programme will be overseen by the Department of Education and implemented by Post-Primary Languages Ireland.

If you are interested in hosting a teacher please submit the Expression of Interest form here by COB on 11th March.
