Hi, I’m Aitana, bilingual coordinator for our school.
I think you will really enjoy working in our centre, we have the benefit of being a rural school with small classes, but we are right outside Malaga.
Getting here is not a problem; up until now, every auxiliary has gotten a lift with one of our teachers. And because you depend on lifts, we do our best to organise your 12 hours in 3 days instead of 4.
Our Auxiliaries have loved working with us, make sure to read our testimonials
Now, down to the details…
What you’ll do:
We have two centres you will work in: Moclinejo and Macharaviaya.
You help teach English and bilingual science – helping in group work, oral work, individual reading…
You might also help in art classes.
If you have some class-free time in your 12 hours, you will help write a simple reading programme for the students or prepare other teaching material.
How you get to work:
Most of our teachers live in Rincon de la Victoria or La Cala del Moral, so, if you don’t live there you need to get to those towns to get a lift to work, some years there are teachers coming from Malaga, but we can’t guarantee that.
Buses leave Malaga centre about every 15/20 min to Rincon and La Cala.
School hours are 9 till 2, the kids have a break from 11:30 to 12:00
You would have to meet your lift at about 8:30 depending on where you meet.
We normally organise your timetable so that you spend a few weeks in a row at each school, so you would be in Moclinejo a few weeks and then Macharaviaya.
An auxiliar normally works 4 days a week, we will do our best to fit your 12 hours into 3 days a week as you need to get a lift to and from the schools.

“As a smaller school, my time in Moclinejo really felt like home. Having spent a year working there I realized that I could not have been placed at a better school. Being a small community, I got the opportunity to get to know each student as well as the entire staff, something that is not possible at the larger schools in the city. While the location seems far and out of the way, I was able to commute easily from the city centre to reach a pickup point and get a ride to the school with other teachers. This allowed me to have a great social circle in Malaga with an amazing tight-nit work environment in an absolutely beautiful town. “

“I have had the pleasure of being a language assistant in three different locations in Andalucia. The school that stood out the most for me was CEIP Los Olivares in Moclinejo. Moclinejo is set in the mountains overlooking the blazing blue Mediterranean sea. It was absolutely stunning up there. Because Moclinejo is a village, the school does not have many students. Small class size meant that I was able to get to know each student individually, creating meaningful relationships. Some of my most memorable times there were taking excursions with the kids and being offered local delicacies, such as freshly prepared chorizo, yum! The staff was absolutely amazing, making me feel welcomed the moment I stepped inside the building. They are passionate, creative and all around very lovely people. The one thing I regret is missing out on was the village’s wine festival, which happens in September.
I lived in Malaga city during my year at CEIP Los Olivares. Because of this, I was able to experience the Spanish rural village life as well as city life. This meant I got a much bigger bang for my buck, experience-wise, during my limited time there. Malaga is a beautiful sea-side city with a large international crowd and tons to do. I managed to easily travel around by air and bus, I took salsa lessons, Spanish classes and got my CELTA all in Malaga city. My daily runs were along the beach promenade. Coming from rural New England, this was all a dream!
I could go on and on about the wonderful time I had during my year at CEIP Los Olivares. If you have a choice to go there, please take this opportunity and do it! Fully immerse yourself, never say no, and you will be simply spoiled with wonderful experiences that will last you a lifetime!”

¨Participating in the auxiliar program at CPR Salvador Rueda has been the best experience in the five years that I have been working as an English assistant in Spain. I had already been an auxiliar for 3 years in various schools before coming to Málaga, yet CPR Salvador Rueda has definitely been my favorite one. Initially, I was skeptical about working in rural schools, but I could not have made a better choice. The environment at both schools is truly enjoyable. The students and staff have made me feel a part of them since day one and my contributions are always welcomed. I’ve had the opportunity to create projects with students of all levels that have allowed my skills as an educator to grow. Working in these two lovely villages and learning so much about their culture has been really gratifying. I truly encourage you to choose CPR Salvador Rueda; I guarantee you’ll love the experience so much you won’t think twice about renewing a second year. ¨
