Course + Internship

This program is designed to give students the opportunity to practise and improve their Spanish both inside the classroom and in the workplace. Intensive Spanish language courses is combined with an unpaid work placement/internship in a local company so that students can further development Spanish language skills in their chosen field, as well as gaining invaluable work experience.

This scheme offers the opportunity to work for Spanish speaking company, add valuable work experience to your CV and show that you are able to work in a professional Spanish speaking environment. You should expect to be doing very basic jobs to start with, however you will be given more responsibilities by the company as you prove yourself capable

Unpaid work experience is most suitable for younger students who have a good level of Spanish and already have some experience or qualifications in the area they are looking to work in. Please note that you will be required to pass an interview at the company providing the experience. You have a better chance of being offered a placement if your Spanish is good and if you have relevant skills and/or qualifications.

Students need to take at least a 4 week Intensive Spanish course. Although you must have at least B1 level of Spanish by the time you commence your work placement, your spoken Spanish may have to be better in order for you to successfully pass an interview.

The minimum amount of time that you can choose to work for is 2 months. The maximum placement length is 6 months. However if you do wish to extend the placement length after you have started, and the company are happy to do so then this fine. The amount of time that you choose to do this scheme depends on your financial situation. The majority of students take a period of 3-6 months, as it is more difficult to get work experience for a shorter period (e.g. 1-2 months). Generally placements are full time.

You should plan to not be paid at all.

Most areas of business are covered, everything from Marketing to Architecture. We would need to evaluate the Spanish level, experience and qualifications of the applicant before we can advise on what would be suitable.
