    There are lots and lots of Spanish schools that pay less than that

    Well, I guess if people didn't accept it schools couldn't get away with it.

    I suppose there'll always be young 20-somethings - possibly NQTs - with not too many financial responsibilities who fancy a couple of years partying in Marbs, or wanting Madrid nightlife, and as long as they can just about survive to the end of the month are not overly bothered about a high salary...

    Down our way, there seem to be quite a few retirees who moved here, got bored and wanted something to do: so money isn't their main aim.

    I think I had an interview at the same school in Valencia this week, I was prepared to take it if offered but after reading this thread, not so sure anymore!

    It all depends. The convenio is just a guarantee of minimum teaching wage. Myself and the other half of Zimrilim are very happy in Madrid but we got lucky. Both taking home 2,300 per month after tax but we are at the top end and in a very well established school that concentrates on keeping staff and is very family orientated. The 1000 euros each settling in allowance also helped. No private medical insurance is not a problem as the service here is equal to private hospitals in the Gulf and a damn sight better than China or South America. This will hopefully be our last gig as we want to finish where we started off in the 1990s. It also helps that Young Zimrilim loves it here. That is a true bonus.
  9. I just applied to a school in Valencia (International School). What salary did they offer you? I knew Spain did not pay as well as other places, but I didn't expect it to be as bad as I have been reading.
