ESUK can offer a very limited number of unpaid work placements and work experience in our Primary and Secondary School. All our vacancies for German interns for September 2023 to August 2024 have been filled.

Internship Programme

The ESUK Internship Programme is designed for students studying towards or who already hold a teaching qualification, we especially like to hear from students on education/ teaching degrees from France, Germany and Spain. We prefer candidates who can commit to at least 3 months.

We work with PASCH, Geothe-Institut, Instituto Cervantes and Institut Français to provide placements for candidates within these networks.

In Primary, half the week is taught through English and half taught through French, German or Spanish. In Secondary, History and Geography are studied in a second language.  Some of our students require extra language help and the main role of the interns is to aid these students’ progress.  Therefore, we especially welcome candidates with fluent German, French and Spanish. There will be some opportunity to work in the English classes but this will be limited.

The work placement functions range from assisting individual pupils during lessons, to taking part of the lesson, as well as supporting the teacher; some supervisory duties will be included.


Work placement candidates must make their own arrangements for board and lodging, but we are happy to offer assistance.
