Ministry vs. Meddeas: Which Teaching Program Should You Choose?

teaching programs in spain

Last year, I worked 12 hours a week as a high-school English teacher through the Spanish Ministry of Education’s “North American Language and Culture Assistant” (NALCA) program. This year, as a way to end up in Barcelona, I switched to teaching with the private program Meddeas.

Both teaching programs in Spain have their pros and cons, so which one should you choose if you’re thinking about being an auxiliar de conversación (language assistant)? Let’s break it down:

Teaching Programs in Spain: Ministry and Meddeas Face-Off

Teaching Programs in Spain Ministry vs. Meddeas


You’ll work 12 hours per week with the Ministry (16 in Madrid), and 20 with Meddeas. With each of these teaching programs in Spain, your hours aren’t necessarily back-to-back, so you may have gaps in your schedule where you’ll have to wait around at your school, lesson plan, drink coffees, and try fruitlessly to access Facebook, which your school will inevitably have blocked. Personally, I’d prefer to work 12 hours at a higher rate and then find my own private lessons (or just keep it at 12 hours and live an eternal vacation), but obviously, you might prefer having 20 guaranteed hours, even if the pay per hour is lower.


The Ministry pays 700 euros/month (1,000 euros in Madrid), and Meddeas pays between 600-900 (to see exact pay, check out my prior post on Meddeas). So you’ll usually earn more overall with Meddeas, but less per hour.

On-time Payment

The Ministry is infamous for paying late. Although I didn’t really experience that in Basque Country last year, I’ve heard horror stories. Some regions, like Galicia, are known for paying on time; others like Murcia—forget about it. So far, there have been no payment issues with Meddeas.


The Ministry program is also infamous for its poor organization. Although I honestly don’t have too many complaints with them (I went into it expecting worse), I’ll say that communication was sometimes poor, especially at the end of the year. Everyone was trying to renew their residency cards and the Ministry didn’t send us the documents till basically one day before our old card expiredPerdona?!?

Meddeas certainly seems more organized. They answer emails quickly, provided a helpful orientation, and the coordinator is available via phone if you have pressing questions. However, Spanish organization may be different from your U.S. or U.K. definition of organization, so in general, you may want to learn to relax a bit! :)

Spanish Requirements

The Ministry says you need an intermediate level of Spanish to participate, but they never check if you actually have that. However, the application and all the communication with the program is in Spanish, which may make it difficult if you don’t know any. Plus, they do no hand-holding—good luck opening a bank account or getting your residency card if you really know no Spanish.

Meddeas says that you don’t need to know any Spanish to apply, and since the application, acceptance information, and all communication with the program is in English, this is actually true. (Once again, though, I highly recommend having some level of Spanish to navigate more easily once you’re in Spain.)


The Ministry places in most regions, except Catalonia, Valencia, and Navarra. In addition, only Brits can be placed in the Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla. You can be placed in a big city or a tiny pueblo—there’s really no telling.

Meddeas works in schools in every region of mainland Spain. (And possibly the islands, but don’t quote me on that!) This is the primary reason I switched to Meddeas this year—I wanted to be placed in Barcelona.

Type of School

The Ministry works in public schools. It places people in CIEPs (Colegio Infantil y Educación Primaria), ages 3-11; IESs (Instituto de Escuela Secundaria), ages 12-16; and Bachillerato, ages 17-18. They also work in EOIs (Escuela Oficial de Idiomas), meaning language schools for adults.

Meddeas works in private schools—some very Catholic, some not religious at all. They work with daycares all the way up to Bachillerato.


The Ministry’s orientation is a either a 1 or 2-day “training” course held after the official start date (so you get to miss some days of teaching, woohoo!). Each autonomous community or province organizes their own orientation, so if you’re placed in Basque Country, your orientation will be in Basque Country. I didn’t find the orientation helpful at all, but it was good for meeting other people in the program.

Meddeas holds a 1-day orientation. (They have three separate orientations, but you attend the one that corresponds to your start-date.) This year, the orientation for the entire program was held in Barcelona, so I completely lucked out. Others—say, those placed in Andalucia—had much more hassle. You’d have to fly first to Barcelona with all your stuff, stay in a hostel for a day or two, then catch another flight or bus or train to your end destination. Bummer.

That being said, the orientation was so much more organized than the Ministry’s. For starters, it actually followed the time-table to a T, which is shocking. It included general information and expectations about Meddeas; a session on helpful teaching ideas and classroom organization; and a presentation on cultural norms and things about the Spanish school style that may strike us as weird. Overall, it was an impressive orientation.

Health Care

The Ministry provides pretty comprehensive health care. With Meddeas, if you’re not an EU citizen, you need to purchase it through a third-party provider in order to qualify for a visa. Nine months of coverage cost me about $270 USD. Once you’re in Spain, you’ll pay a tiny amount each month (around 10 euros) to Social Security, and thus qualify for Spain’s universal health coverage—even free dental and eye-care, my oh my.


The Ministry’s pay is 100% untaxed. With Meddeas, we technically have to contribute a tiny bit to social security, so about 10 euros gets taken out from our grant monthly.

Spots Available

These are very rough numbers, but the Ministry program places around 2,000 applicants, and Meddeas places around 300.

Security Deposit

The Ministry requires NOTHING from you demonstrating your commitment, besides checking a box to say you accept your placement. You could literally back out of the program the day before it starts, and nothing would happen.

Meddeas requires EU citizens to turn in a 150-euro deposit after accepting placement, to show you’re really going to come. (This deposit is returned to you at the end of the program.) From Americans, they request proof that you’ve purchased your plane ticket. Meddeas also holds on to half of your first month’s paycheck until the end of the year, so if you quit the program early without a legitimate reason (like medical issues), you lose half a month’s pay.

Application Process

With the Ministry program, it’s a first-come-first-serve free-for-all through an online system called Profex. You need a letter of recommendation, your college transcripts, and a copy of your passport—that’s about it.

With Meddeas, they hold a Skype interview and an in-person interview, so you actually have to be chosen for the position.

Tailored Process          

The Ministry’s online Profex system allows you to state your top three regional preferences, age group, and what size city you’d like to live in. Who knows if they take much of that into account. Some people get their first-choice region; others get one they didn’t even list in their top 3. My friend had application number 14 this year—14 out of over 4,000, imagínate—and they placed her in her second choice of Galicia instead of her first choice of Basque Country. The Ministry’s mind is a mystery.

Meddeas’ process is much more tailored, since you actually speak with them in person and talk about your preferences. They really do make an effort to accommodate your wishes and place you in the best fit possible.


Both programs issue a Student Visa. This means you can get student benefits like discounts on train tickets and attraction entrances. But it also means you’re limited in finding other work while in Spain, since you can legally only work up to 20 hours a week on a student visa.

Other Time Commitments

The Ministry doesn’t have any. You work 12 hours a week and ya está.

During the school/work year, Meddeas requires that you participate in an online TEFL course, which may eat up an hour or so a week (if that). If you’re interested in becoming TEFL certified, doing it for free with Meddeas is a great option. (Though it’s unclear if this certification would actually be accepted in the majority of TEFL jobs worldwide).

So just tell me, which program should I do?

I can’t make that decision for you, dearest reader. It truly depends on the person.

I can say that for me, I don’t regret doing either the Ministry program or Meddeas. I certainly see the merits of both. And hey, after all, each one gives you a living wage and a Spanish visa, just to chat away in your native tongue. 

If pay per hour is what you’re looking at, the Ministry is a better deal. You can work a mere 12 hours a week and make enough to live on, versus Meddeas’ 20 hours a week for a slightly larger paycheck.

I also love the fact that with the Ministry program, health care is included, the grant is tax-free, and there’s no security deposit.

And like I said, during my year as a language assistant with the Ministry in Bilbao, I didn’t experience too many issues with late payments, poor organization and communication, or horror stories with my school. I got lucky, I guess.

But I traded that all in because I wanted to live in Barcelona. So I bought my own health care, work more hours, participate in an online TEFL course, and pay a wee bit of taxes. And I don’t regret making these “sacrifices,” if these first-world-problems can even be called that, because location was the most important consideration for me this year. And as an added bonus, I find the program’s organization much smoother and easier to handle, and the directors to be incredibly friendly and accommodating.

I traded higher pay for this. Can you really blame me?

I traded higher pay for this. Can you really blame me?

What it boils down to:

The Ministry program has many more extremes. You can have a fantastic experience or an awful one, depending on so many factors.

If you’re placed in the middle of no where, have a school that wasn’t properly briefed on the contractual requirements (and thus takes advantage of you), receive late payments, and can’t get a straight answer from the Ministry for the life of you—definitely, you could have a really rough year.

If you’re placed in the heart of Sevilla, love your school and coworkers and age group, get paid on time in a beautiful lump some of 700 untaxed euros, and your coordinator responds to your inquiring emails on-time, you’ll probably be loving life.

Meddeas is more controlled. The program itself is more organized; the lead coordinator of Meddeas has personally checked out every school, so in theory the schools should be well-briefed on expectations and know how to use their language assistant to everyone’s advantage. Communication with the Meddeas coordinators is easy and reliable. The interview process is clearly more controlled; it’s not a random free-for-all or first-come-first-serve race, and instead you’re chosen based on whether or not you’re a strong candidate. Placements are more personalized, and your preferences are taken strongly into account.

Oh right, and they have spots in Barcelona, which is why I’m writing about them in the first place.

    Hi, I want to sign up for the Meddeas program. I´m from Trinidad and I´m concerned that if I get past the first round of the Skype interview that I would have to find myself in the UK, Ireland, Spain, Germany or the US for the face to face interview. Do you know if they make special allowances for persons not living in those territories? Maybe a second skype interview?

    • Gabrielle

      Nevermind I see that you answered that question below. That sucks. That´s gonna be mighty expensive to make the trip to any one of those countries just for an interview.

  • Terrell

    Would it be possible to do this while studying abroad at the University of Barcelona? It would be a great opportunity to get some international experience, but i’m afraid the hours might conflict and it might be tough on me. What are typical Meddeas work hours if there are any?

  • Alex Fresneña Eschen

    Its funny how you complain on Spain relaxed organization. Sort of a myth. Falling again into stereotyping….To be honest, I sort of find it ofensive. In my region the Basque country, i think its quite eficient.
    Well, I dont want to sound rude but I think its much better than the one you can find in the US. Bureaucracy and organization in the US is pretty bad and relaxed. It took me months to have my social security number, and I needed it to start working!!. i had to go like 9 times to the social services hahaha. And let’s not talk about the Visa procedures. Pretty narrowed with time and managed very poorly by US autorities. I guess dealing with authorities is always stressfull.

  • Claire Barber

    Hello Jenny, I have been accepted to both the Meddeas program and the Ministry program for this coming year. I have already gone through all the steps of accepting the Meddeas program, but I have just heard back from the Ministry today. I was wondering if you had any idea how difficult it could be to back out of the Meddeas program this far into the process (I am already in touch with my tutor). I really feel badly about this, but I like the location better in the Ministry’s program. I am just a bit stressed and don’t know what to do now!

  • Ryan Lutgen

    Thanks for the helpful breakdown! I have a Skype interview this week with Meddeas, and not to get ahead of myself, but I am curious about the face-to-face interview. Did you have to fly somewhere for the interview? Pay out of pocket? Are the interviews done at Spanish consulates?

    And on another note, I see some older comments that Meddeas only accepts participants under 30. That seems to have changed, because I am 31 and I got an interview. Hopefully that’s not an oversight on their part!

    • Hi Ryan,
      Unfortunately, depending on where you are you will have to travel to the face to face interview, which is something I really HATE about the interview process. You’ll need to cover the costs of that as well. I’m not sure where they host interviews in the U.S. – not at the Spanish consulates, it’s based on where Meddeas has staff. I did mine at their headquarters in Pamplona as I was based in Bilbao at the time, and I remember thinking even a 2 hour, 28-euro bus ride was absurd – little did I know people actually buy flights for these interviews!! :( :(
      As for age limit, I’m not sure what it is – 31 is the new 30 so I’m sure you’re fine :)

  • Rachel Davis

    Hey, I recently had my skype interview with Meddeas (just over two weeks ago). They did say that they would let us know within two weeks if we had gotten to the next stage, and we would not hear back if not. Its been about two and a half weeks now, and I am wondering if I should also apply for the Ministry program.

    • Hi Rachel, sorry for the delayed response on this. I would recommend sending a follow-up email to Meddeas to see the status. Also, I believe the Ministry program is closed to applications now, as the period usually runs from early January to early March, but I always recommend applying to both just in case. No harm in looking into it!

  • Kate

    Hi Jenny, can you tell me more about the TEFL course you received with Meddeas? Was it helpful? How many hours did you earn? How much would the equivilant course have cost if Meddeas did not provide it?

    • Hi Kate, so sorry for the late response. Here’s where all the honesty is going to come out – the TEFL course was the biggest waste of time ever. Absolute busy work, didn’t teach us anything, and I doubt anywhere would actually accept it, since it’s a course through one of Barcelona’s school’s but not all that official. I could be wrong, as I’ve never tried to apply anywhere with it, but ya….definitely a sort of round-about way of calling it an internship so we can get student visas.

  • savannah

    Thank you so much for this breakdown! I’m studying to be a Spanish teacher in Denver, CO, but trying to spend at least a year in Spain before I take a job. The girl I’m working with now has said great things about the Ministry, but I’m interested in Meddeas as well. I would like to be placed in Madrid because I have multiple connections there, so I’m trying to keep my options open. I’ve applied to both, so I’ll let you know what happens! Again, this article is a fantastic resource, so THANK YOU!!!!

  • Ned Martinez-Zavala

    Hi Jenny,

    Is there a way for 2 people to get accepted to the same school or to be placed in the same area?

    • To be placed in the same area, definitely! I’m not entirely sure Meddeas places two people at the same school, though it’s possible it does. The Ministry program certainly does!

      • Obidi Ekwulugo

        Would it be wise to mention being placed with a partner in the same area during the interview? Or could that hurt your chance of being accepted?

  • Katrina

    Hi Jenny!
    You mention that Meddeas has a more personalized process when choosing placements– can you specify a city (although it’s not guaranteed) or say like within X hours of this city? I’d love to be near Bilbao, so it’d be a plus being able to specify!

  • Erin C.

    Hi Jenny! I thought I read on your blog somewhere that you canceled the private insurance you had to get to apply for your visa (for your Meddeas year). I can’t find the post again, so do you mind directing me to the page or telling me a little more about the process to sign-up for Spanish health care? Thank you!!

    • Hey Erin, sorry for the late response! I think it was in the comments section of this post. You can talk to the director of Meddeas about switching over to Spanish health care once you’re there–they supply you all the info and health insurance numbers you need. It’s just a process of going to a few offices in Spain and getting the necessary cards. Totally doable!

  • Angela Chaddoud

    Hi was just wondering if you could please post some of the questions they asked you during the Skype interview, I’m very keen on doing this program it’s been my dream forever! This would really be so helpful if you could thank you so much x

    • Hi Angela,

      My skype interview was a year and a half ago so unfortunately I don’t remember too well the exact questions, but I remember it being pretty straightforward, things like your basic info, any experience teaching, why you want to do it, what kind of school would be your preference, a couple situational questions about being in the classroom, that sort of thing. The in person interview went a bit more in depth but the Skype one was really basic and straightforward. Good luck!

  • Maria

    Hi Jenny,
    I’m Spanish but applying to get a job as a Language Assistant through Meddeas, they are advertising for non-native with a C2 English level. My question is, did you find Spanish people in the Orientation? just to know if I have any chances… thanks for taking the time to share your experiences and information about the programmes.

  • Sophia Espinosa

    hello is it possible to be part of auxiliares de conversacion and meddeas at the same time? Thanks!

  • Marcus

    Hey Jenny,

    I’m currently conversing with Meddeas and if a spot opens up I think I will snag it. I have a question about the health insurance. Who was the third-party provider you went through? Was it an easy process to obtain the insurance for coverage abroad? Also, why do you need third party insurance if you are covered by the Spanish healthcare system once you are there?
    Thanks for your help!

    • Hey Marcus, it was called International Student Insurance, but Meddeas will tell you which plans are good to choose between. It was super easy, and you need it in order to apply for a visa. Since you’re not in Spain yet you won’t have Spanish coverage, and in order for Spain to issue you the visa they need proof of coverage. I cancelled mine and got a large percent refunded once I later switched over to the national healthcare system once in Spain.

      • Marcus

        Jenny, thanks for your reply!
        Ok, so the Spanish government just needs to see that you have health coverage as part of the visa application process. Then once you have the visa and are in Spain, you are covered through their socialized healthcare. Right?

        • Hey Marcus, you can opt to be covered by socialized healthcare by going through a bit of a paperwork process (not that difficult, but still.) Or, you can just stay on your international plan. Up to you! (I found being on the socialized healthcare MUCH easier and more convenient).

  • Nadine

    Hi Jenny, I just had my skype interview with Meddeas earlier in the week and they want to invite me to a face to face interview next week. I’m applying for the advanced program and I have to say I found the skype interview to be pretty intense and it lasted a whole 40 minutes. How would you say your skype interview compared with your face to face interview? Is it more difficult? Should I be worried?

    • Hi Nadine,
      I wouldn’t be worried but naturally an in-person interview will go more in-depth than a skype interview. I think they say the in-person lasts about 40 minutes as well. The questions are pretty similar in both interviews, if I remember correctly. Just try to be calm and personable, and good luck!

  • lola

    I think it should also be mentioned that meddeas has an age limit, under 30 and within 4 years from graduation of your program.

    • Thanks so much for bringing that to our attention, I didn’t realize they set those limitations.

      • Dan

        I don’t know about the 30 year age limit, but I can attest to the “4 years from graduation” rule. I’m 28 and graduated from college 5 years ago. I just applied to MEDDEAS and immediately received a reply saying they could not even consider my application because I graduated more than 4 years ago. They, said, however, that 4-year rule is not their own organization’s policy, but rather dictated so by Spanish law for all grant programs.

        One would think that if this were true (the 4 year rule being the law), then this would also apply to the Ministry’s language assistant program. Yet I’ve found no indication that the Ministry has the same 4-year restriction, which makes me think one of four possibilities:

        1) The same Spanish law does apply to the Ministry, they just don’t really check on it or enforce it.
        2) The Ministry does also enforce this rule, and I just haven’t found any online testimonials or information confirming this yet.
        3) The Ministry IS exempt from this restriction, because they are government.
        4) This is just MEDDEAS’s institutional policy, and they are making this up regarding it being “Spanish law.”

        Whatever the case, I’m pretty upset that MEDDEAS didn’t explicitly state this on their website. MEDDEAS really stuck out to me as the most organized and “together” of these grant programs. Now it seems I got my hopes really up about applying, and spent a LOT of time on my application, all for nothing.

  • Kristen Woods

    Hi Jenny,
    If you recall, about how long after you initially applied to Maddeas did you hear back about your application?

    • Hi Kristen, I think I heard back about an initial Skype interview about two weeks after submitting the application, and then maybe another two weeks later they contacted me for an in-person interview.

      • Kristen Woods

        Thanks Jenny,
        I emailed maddeas asking about the timeline of their process and they informed me that they do not accept applicants over the age of 30 due to their grant. I’m pretty disappointed and really would’ve preferred that made that information available on their website. I can’t do the ministry’s program because I need to stay with my brother in BCN, so back to the drawing board.


    Hi Jenny,

    I have been thinking about teaching in Spain for awhile, and I always thought that the Ministry’s program was the only option, until I read about Meddeas- so thank you for posting such a thoughtful and informative post!

    Could you tell me about your work load and day to day with Meddeas? I am studying to be a teacher in the US and would like actual teaching experience versus just being a teacher helper. What sort of responsibilities do you have? Does this depend upon whether you are in the Advanced, Graduate or Speaker program?


    • Hi Laura,
      It definitely depends on the program. If you’re studying to be a teacher you might want to do the Advanced program. I’m not entirely clear on the details, but I think you are alone more with the kids, get paid more, and have more responsibilities. Plus you have a different online course, not a TEFL, I believe.
      I think responsibilities with Meddeas change on a case-by-case basis depending on your school. I’m working at a daycare so my day obviously looks entirely different than someone at a high school. But in general you’ll be an assistant helping with conversation, pronunciation, maybe a bit of grammar. You shouldn’t ever be expected to be the main teacher in the classroom, but more of an added support as a native teacher.

  • Alicia Foster

    Jenny, thank you so much for sharing your insight about both programs! I’ve applied to both for the 2015-2016 school year and I’m very hopeful to hear back soon. I appreciate your honesty in your posts – I think my decision will come down to location as well (if I’m lucky enough to be offered a position through both programs) and I was relieved to hear that I’m not the only one prioritizing location so much! I’m so happy to have found your blog, being a California native who happens to have left half her heart in Spain :) Voy a estar en Barcelona en marzo, igual nos vemos jaja ;) Imagino que hay muchos americanos que quieren hablar contigo siempre, pero me encantaria concocerte o hablar mas por email o facebook si quieres. -Alicia

    • Hi Alicia, thanks so much for your sweet comment, and good luck with both programs! I’d love to meet up when you’re in Barcelona, it’s always so great to meet readers face to face :) Just send me an email closer to when you’ll be here!

  • Andrea Furneaux

    Hi, i’ve been accepted onto Meddeas, and just wondered whether you get paid during the holidays too (christmas and easter)? Thanks, Andrea

    • Yes you do, it’s a grant so it just comes as a lump sum once a month, no matter how many days off you have!

  • Denise

    Hey I was wondering if you had your TEFL certification before doing either of the programs? I still don’t have my certificate but am super interested in moving to Spain, and I’ll be graduating this May. I’ve read your other blog posts, which have been super helpful! I was wondering if when you rent a place in Spain do some already come with like a bed or furniture? Because I read about your experience looking for a new Piso and I was curious. Would you recommend staying with a host family or just getting your own place? (if it’s my first time going, but speak Spanish fluently)

    • Hi Denise, I had no TEFL certificate, though with Meddeas I’m earning one through a course we must take with them throughout the year. As for pisos, most come completely furnished (even with pots and pans) so the most I’ve usually had to buy is bedding! [Even that came included in my piso last year! Depends if you’re squeamish about sheets…hahah]. As for host family, definitely a personal choice but I ABSOLUTELY would live on my own. I like to do my own thing, cook my own meals, come back home when I want, I need my space, etc. Especially if you speak Spanish fluently already, I really don’t see many advantages to living with a host family.

  • Alicegrace

    Hi! I have just been accepted to Meddeas and I am very excited. It was also reassuring to see good comments about the placement, Was just wondering do you live with a host family or by yourself?

  • Madison

    Hey! Thanks for all of your posts on these programs. I’m really hoping one of these works out for me in 2015. I applied to Meddeas back in October (it says applications are rolling?) but I never heard back. I also left an FB message for them. Is there a better time to send out my application? Did I miss something? Any advice would be awesome. Thanks again!

    • Hey Madison, I’d recommend shooting them an email (you can find a contact email on their site), since perhaps it fell through the cracks. Never hurts to follow up to show you’re still really interested!

      • Madison

        Just in case anyone else reading is applying to Meddeas, use the “” address, not “” which is in the signature of their Inquiry Response email. Maybe I’m the only one silly enough to do that though ;) Thanks again, Jenny. I’m excited to move forward through the process!

        • Alejandra

          Hi Madison! I did the same thing! I was emailing the candidates@meddeas email instead of the other one! Once I emailed the info@meddeas one they got back to me right away! :)

  • Very informative post! I had never heard of Meddas before reading your previous post. I’m in the Ministry program now and am planning on staying in Spain longer than just this year, so maybe next year I’ll go for the Meddas program. We’ll see though because I’ve had a great experience so far with the Ministry program in La Rioja!

    • It’s definitely a way to keep your options open! But if you’re happy with your placement in La Rioja, renewing with the Ministry would be so easy. And ahhhh, only 12 hours….

      • I’m actually working about 15 hours per week at my school, but they’re paying me 15€ an hour for those extra hours per week. It’s actually great because it’s just like a private class, and I can just stay at school. Plus, no cancellations!

  • Jenn

    Jenny, you continue to amaze me with your whimsical writing and sense of humor. I wonder how so much effort you set to make such a fantastic informative blog! As always, life is too short to blend in. :)
    xo Jenn (Bilbao starts to rain again!)

    • Thanks so much for the sweet words, Jenn. I hope you manage to stay dry ;) If it’s any consolation, it’s raining in Barcelona too!!
