How long do you teach in Chile for?


Hi Mike,

Most schools and programs in Chile hire teachers for either a semester (6 months) or yearlong (10-11 months) commitment. If you're looking at private or international schools, you may see some with a minimum two-year contract requirement, but that's less common. The length of time you're asked to commit will vary depending on your individual school or institute, but generally you can expect to sign on for at least 6 months at the least. Of course, some volunteer programs offer more short-term commitments, but as far as teaching jobs go, you probably won't find much for less than a full semester.
