GET TEFL CERTIFIED WHILE WORKING IN SPAIN!
Would you like to get TEFL Certified and live a unique Experience in Spain?
iTTi Spain & Number 16 School are pioneers in offering you this UNIQUE PROGRAM AND EXPERIENCE, where you can obtain your TEFL certification while having an assured job in Spain at a market leader English School. The program takes place in five prime Spanish cities, in eight different Number 16 Schools. Candidates can choose from living in the Spanish capital – Madrid, to next to the beach with a warmer climate in Valencia or Barcelona, in a smaller and surrounded by great landscapes city like Zaragoza or in a state of the art city like Bilbao.
Famous for its good weather, history and atmosphere. There are always things to do, world beating events, streets where you can eat tapas, streets full of passionate new people to meet and restaurants to go to. If you are interested in art, Spain is a country full of museums and world famous galleries.
The country is famous for its relaxed, mediterranean attitude towards life where food, family and friends are of the utmost importance. While working in the USA or the UK it’s common to see people eating their lunch as they walk down the street in a hurry or eating on public transport so it’s refreshing to see a different, slower pace of life as people take time to enjoy their lunch with friends sitting outside in the street or in park.
One of the instantly recognizable traits of the Spanish is their inimitable easy-going personalities, they are open to change when necessary and are incredibly passionate about everything! About learning English, working, playing and watching sport, meeting new people….everything is done with a Spanish passion that has to be experienced from within.
A key aspect to our team members settling in Spain and enjoying life is the affordability of the country (even within its major cities!). Eating and socializing with friends and family is an everyday occurrence and is priced as such. In comparison to native English-speaking countries the cost of living for both accommodation and basic necessities is low.
Of course, we can’t mention living and working in Spain without mentioning its famous weather! Tourists flock here from all over the world to experience its reliable sunshine and warm temperatures, and our teachers are the same! Summer weekends and holidays can be spent at the beach or hiking in the mountains, while some teachers prefer to lounge at their local public swimming pool.
One amazing aspect of Spain that is commonly forgotten is the sheer diversity of its regions and landscapes. Many of our teachers enjoy skiing in the winter months in the Spanish resorts of Formigal and Panticosa in the Aragonese Pyrenees. If the cooler temperatures aren’t to your liking, then head to Valencia or further south to Andalucia to take in some warm winter sun. Of course, the famous Spanish regions have their own unique cultures and festivals to enjoy! From the wine throwing in Teruel, tomato throwing in Valencia, to the bull running in Pamplona! Amazing experiences for all to enjoy!
For those teachers who are coming to Europe from further afield, Spain is an ideal starting point to launch European long weekends or longer excursions during annual leave. From Madrid, Barcelona, Zaragoza, Valencia, and Bilbao, you can catch a flight to anywhere in the world. So why not experience London, Paris, or Milan during your time here!,
Why choose Number 16 School?
Number 16 School was born in Zaragoza, Spain in 2010 with the aim of providing high quality english classes that allow students not only to speak english correctly but to think in English!The demand for classes that focus on speaking with a unique atmosphere and young, motivated teachers has led to the expansion of the company across Spain into the most exciting and dynamic cities in the country. This expansion began in 2016 with a second centre in Zaragoza, in 2017 with our first centre in Madrid and Valencia, Bilbao, two more centres in Madrid followed. Most recently, an incredible new centre in the heart of Barcelona has been established. 2020 has seen a huge rise in demand for remote learning and the formation of our hugely successful online department Number 16+.
As a privately owned school, this rise from having one academy in Zaragoza to becoming a market leader in Spain can be attributed to a number of things: teachers and staff approach their work with an unrivalled energy and motivation to provide our students with excellence. They receive industry-leading training both initially and on-going in small groups. We invest in people. This is at the heart of our strategy.
Our unique methods designed by our quality department for both kids and adults have given us the tools our teachers need to provide amazing classes, and the tools our students need to learn “real” English and begin speaking it from their very first class on.
Finally, we can´ not dismiss the impact our amazing facilities have had on our success. Of course, we are located in some incredible cities, but our locations within those cities are unrivaled in terms of prestigious buildings and streets, transport links and beauty. Each academy is designed individually, looks modern, and has facilities that help our students and teachers work comfortably.
