Looking for a job in Italy? How about getting some experience teaching? Teaching Internships in Florence, Italy

Open the door to employment in Italy! The logical next step after initial teacher training is to gain consistent, live teaching experience. If you qualify, we will be happy to place you into a teaching internship in an Italian school, pre-school, adult education facility, or learning center. Our internships generally run for two months and you’ll have a tutor to guide you as you require assistance. Rest assured that we are educators ourselves, and we understand the field in order to guide you and prepare you in the best way possible. Our past participants have gained valuable insight into the culture of their placement schools and many have then been offered employment directly with the school. It’s a win-win situation to take part in an internship: You won’t have to commit to a full-time contract until you’ve had the chance to experience the environment first hand, and you’ll be sure to be on the same page as the school when discussing requirements of your position.

To qualify, you must:

  • possess a teaching certificate (TEFL, TESOL, TESL, CLAD)
  • have a desire to work with and understand different cultures
  • be open to your placement schools’ philosophies
  • want to add to your CV by taking part in an international teaching internship

To benefit even more from your internship, you’ll most likely want to pair it up with either our Teaching Business English Certificate or our Teaching English to Young Learners Certificate, both of which you may complete via distance learning. Please ask about special discounts when you pair the two options!
