Hi, I'm a Spanish national and I worked as a Spanish Assistant in an important Specialist Language College in Yorkshire. I worked there from 2008 to 2010, the experience was fantastic and I loved every second of it. When my contract was about to finish the school offered me the chance to stay with them another year, but I had already decided to move to the Midlands as i got a temp job. I'm still regretting this, as in the Midlands the lack of job made me struggle. I have been emailing local schools for a few months now ( i cannot apply thought the British Council, as I did it before), I even visited one and I'm getting no answers at all, which is quite depressing as I feel ignored which is quite upsetting as after my 2 year experience as a Spanish Assistant I can say that this is the job of my life, the one I really love and the one I really want. At this point I'm even considering working as a FLA in any other place in England. What is the problem here? Is the Midlands a bad area for Language Assistants? Does someone work in a school or know about a school that needs a FLA for this of the next academic year? Thanks a lot!
