A word of advice though, this is a challenging, demanding job and I’d recommend working in a summer camp before you commit to a year-round contract in an academy. My summer experience in TECS proved invaluable, and I really felt confident in my abilities starting in Blue Door, despite the fact they offer very different things. TECS is a summer camp for Spanish children, whereas Blue Door is a Cambridge and Trinity exam centre. This is a double-edged sword because while the job is very demanding it also means the vast majority of your students will be focused and motivated to pass their exams.
Blue Door has been great. From our week of intensive training, to the facilities in each classroom, to the assistance with paperwork and the support we received when looking for accommodation, they have done everything in their power to make moving to a foreign country a comfortable and positive experience. Let the good times continue! For anyone thinking about making the move to Spain, what are you waiting for?
