ASTEX employs a staff of certified EFL teachers with diverse backgrounds (the better to match teachers with clients). Once a teacher is hired, the company invests time and energy in helping them progress in the profession by offering continuous professional training. The salary is competitive, and because of sheer volume (1,000 groups last year, about 300 teachers), you can be sure that you'll get as many hours as you can handle. ASTEX concentrates on small groups and one-to-one classes usually at companies or private homes, the vast majority of which are centrally based around Zone A of the bus/metro network. One really good thing about Astex is that they highly respect professionals in this business, so if you are thinking of doing more than just teaching in the future, this company does offer possibilities of promotion.

Facilities and classrooms:
ASTEX isn't an academy, but they do have 12 classrooms on-site and they do have lunch-time classes there, though they always try to do the classes in-company. Their training center is on Calle Velázquez.

Employment Information:

How many teachers do they hire per year?
ASTEX hires about 30 to 40 teachers per year.

Qualification requirements for employment?
Ideally, the candidate should have a degree and TEFL certificate though the reality of the situation is that they often accept candidates without either of these. Good social skills are often seen as just as important in an in-company class.

Experience requirements for employment?
Again, "ideally" 2 years of teaching experience.

Hire at a distance?
No. They'll want to talk to you face-to-face.

Hire Americans and do their papers?
Used to, but just about all of the applications were rejected by the authorities.

Preference for British or Americans?
None apparently.

Best part about working at ASTEX?
Apart from the obligatory orientation sessions, ASTEX offers about 2 workshops per month which include topics for both beginners and experienced teachers.

Offer teacher training or development along with job?
Several workshops along the year on specific topics.

Starters' average salary?
Teachers at ASTEX are either on a contract or freelance ("autónomos"). Contract are offered €17.50 gross per hour as a starting hourly rate. Freelance teachers are offered €24 gross per hour as a starting rate (although "autónomos" pay their own taxes and medical), but the average rate for experienced autónomos is a lot higher.
