For those who are over 18 and already studying at university or a recent graduate, WEP offers the Language Assistants Program for participants from French speaking Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Spanish speaking countries, Japan and China. This program is aimed at those who see their future career in teaching or who have a very strong interest in teaching.
A limited number of placements are available each year for native speakers of French, Italian, Spanish and German to spend four weeks living with an Australian family and helping them with their language learning for 20 hours a week. The rest of your time is free to explore. This program is available to international participants on a Visitor’s Visa or a Working Holiday visa.
Assistants to Teachers of Chinese Program
The Assistants to Teachers of Chinese Program (ATCP) places high calibre volunteer graduates from China in Victorian government and non-government schools for an academic year. The program supports the Victorian Government’s commitment to improve the quality of languages programs in Victorian schools.
The ATCP is an initiative of the Department of Education and Training (DET) and the Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban).
Here are the stories of the 2017 intake of Assistants to Teachers of Chinese.
