Hey,

Not sure if there’s already a thread for this years ELA intakes through the British Council.

Has anyone applied for the English Language Assistant role?

I’ve applied for China and was wondering if anyone has heard back about their interviews?

Hiii, I applied to China too! I've not heard anything either yet, although I listened to all of the web seminar and they said that they wouldn't be sending all the video interviews at once so not to worry. I don't think anyone has heard back yet but not completely sure. Although I check my emails all the time anyway haha :'D

I'm not completely sure but from the seminar it sounded like making sure that you're eligible (have a degree, age, ect) and that you're a good character from what you've written. Although I can't be completely sure but that's what it sounded like when someone asked a similar question!

My friend applied for Latin America, by the sounds of her webinar they don’t do a language test. Can’t be too sure though!

Oh also forgot to mention I got an email for a video interview today : D If someone hasn't received one I wouldn't worry too much as they said they don't send them all out at once! (especially if you've applied for a country that isn't China)

Anyone applied for Spain??

I checked the portal today and it says 'waitlisted' - I don't know if thats a good or bad thing!!
I have a GCSE in Spanish which I put on my application but I don't remember anything other than 'hola' lol. Quite nervous about whether they'll ask me to do an interview..

Yeah me too!! I’ve read forums from previous years and most people said that if you get waitlisted and don’t receive an email within that week, it usually means you don’t need to do an interview - really hoping that’s true!!

This lengthy timescale is making me so nervous 😂

I done mine and was definitely not prepared, I found it to be a bit weird 😂🙈 I think they may offer you your second choice, depending on availability! Best of luck

Yes it was weird , thank you , I am quite excited hopefully we get a place . I mean I think they just want to see you can speak English and are aware of the culture difference . Where did you apply within China ?

Just saw this thread! I'm a postgrad applying for Switzerland. My application is currently on "Shortlisted". It's my second time wanting to teach with the BC but not consecutively. Anyone else's application on this status? I checked my application from 2015/16 and when it changed to "Shortlisted", I got an email that I had passed the British Council requirements but not this time with the application to Switzerland. I'm a bit worried as my application is not the conventional "I want to be a teacher" application.
