The Education Office of the Embassy of Spain promotes diverse educational outreach programs in the United States and Canada. Located in Washington D.C. within the Embassy of Spain, the primary goal of the Education Office of Spain is to foster collaborative educational programs between these countries and Spain, building long lasting ties among their citizens.
One of our most outstanding programs, both in number and scope is the North American Language and Culture Assistants Program (NALCAP). American and Canadian college students and graduates, who are native-like speakers of English and French (in Canada), partner with elementary and secondary schools in Spain to bolster language programs, as teaching assistants (TAs) under the supervision and guidance of teachers of English or French as a World/Foreign Language.
Placements are offered all across Spain, in practically every city and town in the country, running from October 1st to May 31st for most assignments. Short term contracts and/or alternative starting dates are unfortunately not available. NALCAP recipients receive a monthly stipend of 700 to 1000 euros depending on the assigned region and medical insurance from either the national government or the regional governments of Spain. Hours of assistant teaching range from 12 to 16 hours per week also depending on assignment awarded.
At the same time, the program offers recipients the opportunity to study the language and culture of Spain by becoming a local and growing on a personal level, while sharing the language and culture of the United States with students in Spain. This is why we use the hashtag #growasyoushare for this remarkable program.
Over 35,000 Americans and Canadians have participated in the program and lived this amazing opportunity in experiential learning. Come to Spain and become a cultural ambassador. It'll be the experience of a lifetime!
