International Language Assistants at your School

Applications for the 2019 school year are open.

The International Language Assistant Programme (French, German, Spanish), administered by ILEP and respective donor government organisations, enables young native speakers to be employed as Language Assistants in New Zealand schools for 12 contact hours per week.

This provides an invaluable source of up-to-date language and cultural input for New Zealand students of French, German and Spanish. The scheme is available to schools offering languages at primary, intermediate and secondary level.
