ES/EN teaching position [Munich] - questions

7 posts in this topic

Hi All, 

 

We have a discussion in the family whether or not my wife should pursue a local teaching position:

background:

- she finished an non-EU university with teaching spanish/english diploma

- alternatively she is interested into working as "director of study" / methodological consultant/ whatever her stuff is there :D (don't ask me, it's like Chinese for me). Are there such positions? 

https://anabin.kmk.org/no_cache/filter/institutionen.html   says that her Uni/qualification is recognized/ can be equated (has an H+ and  then for column "Senior year" it's an A5 mentioned there (can anyone explain what stands for?)

- she is has  residency - so no visa hassle 

 

My questions would be 

- how likely is to find a job in Munchen in this area? (obviously they will see her as a non-native, would this be an impediment?) 

- is possible to have TKT as an equivalent of a TESL ?

- what German level is required 

- what should be the salary expectations ? 

- any other hints/observations are welcome :)

 

Thanks

Tel.: (089) 23 340 520

BTW, does your wife speak German?

obviously not professional level - that's why I've asked if someone know what are the requirements. anyway - it's her area, as 3+ months and she could get some B2 certificate.

 

Why "obviously not"? I (as well as many other foreigners that I know who are working in non-technical fields) need German in order to work in a skilled position here. 

 

To be a regular public school teacher in Bavaria your wife would need C2 German.

 

Without having any specific information on her qualifications and experience it is impossible to predict her chances in the private sector.

No, requirements vary by state.

She may find a job in a training company. It is hardly possible for her to enter Germany's public educational system unless

she is proficient in German and takes the route of Lehramt ( a series of training and tests to get the certification of a teacher).
