Trip overview

If you are going to learn to teach English abroad, you might as well do it in style, right? Touch down on the ‘White Isle’ of Ibiza to spend a month living and learning on this little dot of Mediterranean heaven. You will gain an internationally recognised accreditation, enabling you to teach English anywhere in the world and get a chance to immerse yourself in Balearic life. Ibiza is an island of duality. Based in Ibiza Town, you can experience the all-night parties, the immense club culture and glitz and glamour that comes with it. However, outside of the island capital, you will find a tranquil and entirely beautiful island, steeped in culture and heritage, a place where the rich and famous come to escape. 

There is nowhere you can find a more comprehensive package for teaching English overseas. We have teamed up with local partners who will set up interviews to help you score a paid teaching placement upon completion of your CertTESOL course. This is a TEFL qualification certified by Trinity College London, a standout name when applying for English teaching jobs anywhere in the world. You will be able to earn a local income, to immerse yourself in different parts of Spain and, of course, explore the wonders of Europe while you are here. Our team will help you with all the essentials you need to kickstart your journey to becoming an English teacher overseas, from visa assistance to bank account set up, cultural activities, excursions, local support and so much more.

Immerse yourself in a beautiful culture, create lifelong connections and tick off incredible bucket list spots in between. This trip is perfect for anyone looking for direction or a new adventure and dreaming of broadening their horizons, travelling Europe and gaining international work & travel experience.

Trip itinerary


Once you’ve touched down at Ibiza Airport (IBZ), your private transfer will take you through the white streets of Ibiza Town to your apartment accommodation.  Your first weekend is packed full of cultural activities! You will have a welcome picnic lunch on the beach, learn how to make Paella in a local chef’s home kitchen, visit the stunning isle of Formentera, and get an in-depth tour of the town and how best to navigate it.

Week 1-4

On the Monday after your arrival, your training begins in earnest and your daily routine will look something like this -  11.00 - 13.30 - Input session 13.30 - 14.30 - Lunch 14.30 - 16.30 - Lesson preparation 16.30 - 18.30 - Input session 18.45 - 20.45 - Teaching practice 20.45 - 21.15 - Feedback This is a world-class Trinity College certified TESOL course where you will learn absolutely everything you have to know about teaching English. After you’ve completed your CertTESOL course, you’ll have an interview arranged with a local English school, or you might want to search in neighbouring European countries and earn around €15 per hour. Our in-country partner will assist you with your Resume/CV, interview preparation, placement and permanent accommodation advice to help you land the perfect teaching job.


If you’re required to obtain a student visa, as part of the visa requirements you will be enrolled in a Teacher’s Development course. The Spanish student visa allows teachers to work up to 20 hours per week. The sessions are run in the mornings (if you want to attend), meaning you’ll be free to teach in the afternoons and evenings which is when the majority of English classes are scheduled. Each teaching placement generally gets 2 weeks off over Easter and Christmas and sometimes in August, making these holidays the perfect time to explore some of Spain’s renowned festivals and view the masterpieces of Gaudi, or jet off to a neighbouring country. We’ll always keep in touch with you throughout your stay. If at any point during your trip you need advice or support, our team will be on hand to answer all your questions. Don’t forget you can jump on our social media pages too or buzz our 24/7 emergency support line for urgent matters.

Why should I book now?

Covid-19 threw us a curve ball and pretty much halted all travel. This means that we have a backlog of travellers, just like you, who are desperate to get out and explore the world! Global Work & Travel works on a first-in-best-dressed basis. Booking earlier ensures that you don’t miss out on the best intake, season, placements and more! We recommend our travellers take 6-12 months to plan their trip for a reason - to make sure you’ve got everything organised perfectly, stress-free.

Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking that trip!

Can I travel with a friend?

Yes you can! Simply tell your Trip Coordinator after booking that your friend is also going and they can link your profiles. For most of our trips we should be able to have you and your friends placed together or nearby. Meaning that you can live, work, play & travel together!

But wait there's more! Not only can you travel the world with your besties at your side, you can also earn some extra cash towards your own trip just by referring your friends to Global Work & Travel. You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

And for those who decide to go-it-solo, we’ve made it easier to meet other Global Travellers in the same region as you. Just like any other social platform, you’ll be able to interact, share, chat and meet with some really cool people who are doing trips just like you!

What happens if COVID affects my trip?

If you have to make any changes to your departure date, you’re protected with our Lifetime Deposit Guarantee and our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility. With this, we will change your trip dates for free. If this doesn’t fit around you and you can’t go on your trip anymore, we will give you a 100% refund in the form of a Trip Credit with us (See terms). If you’re unable to use it, you can also transfer that credit to someone else for them to put towards any trip too.

If you’re affected by Covid-19 while you’re overseas, you will have all the support you need from our team or partners in-country as well as have access to our 24/7 Global Emergency Line. We recommend travellers purchase Global Travel Cover travel insurance that provides Covid-19 medical protection too.

Do I need to be vaccinated to book?

As border restrictions for countries begin to ease, being fully vaccinated will maximise the number of locations you can visit. So while you are not legally required to be vaccinated, and it’s also not a requirement to travel with us, it will limit some of the countries that you can visit and may make it harder to travel through over the next 12-18 months. We highly recommend our travellers look at the current travel restrictions of their destination, speak with a medical professional or get in touch with our team for travel advice.

What happens if I want to cancel my trip?

Our Ultimate Corona Booking Flexibility means you can change your trip’s start date up to 84* days before departure without incurring any charges when you rebook it for any time (or even any other trip) in the next 2 years from your original start date.

In the event that you want to cancel your booking altogether, if you give us over 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put towards booking absolutely anything travel related with your Travel Concierge within the next 2 years!

*Some select trips excluded, including Teach (Spain, Italy & Czech Republic) and USA (Summer Camp, Working Holiday and Hotel Professional), and others as listed in Booking Conditions.
