Months of first-hand experience teaching English in Austria
If accepted into the program, you work as a salaried English teaching assistant in Austria from October 1 to May 31. You are also required to attend a five-day orientation the week before school starts. Your health insurance coverage begins on October 1. While your contract officially ends on May 31, your insurance includes a legally mandated six-week grace period that sees you covered until July 12.
If you demonstrate superior performance in your first year, you may also apply to extend your English teaching assistant job in Austria for a second year. Please note that extensions are up to the discretion of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science, and Research (BMBWF), which limits participation in the program to two years.
