APPLY NOW: Deauville Teaching Internship Program 2024-2025
The mayor of Deauville, France, encourages the teaching of English to school children and to others living in that city. For many years, the Alliance Francaise de Nashville and Deauville’s sister city of Lexington, Kentucky, have helped the Mayor’s Office to find persons to go to Deauville to teach English for one academic year. This year, the mayor’s office has requested that the AFN solicit applications for one (or two) internship(s) for the 2024-2025 academic year.
The city of Deauville will provide each intern with a salary of approximately 1100 euros per month after tax. The city will also provide accommodations and a company car to be shared by the interns if there are professional needs. As an employee of the city of Deauville, each intern will be covered by the French national health insurance. Interns will conduct classes, work with extra-curricular activities, and help promote the English language at all times of a typical school day (including lunchtime and after school care). Interns must arrive in Deauville around the end of August, and they will receive training during the two weeks prior to beginning their duties. Interns will be responsible for transportation to and from France as well as for any expenses incurred in securing passports and work visas. AFN does not provide any assistance. Please note: For further detailed information prepared by the Deauville Team, be sure to read the Fiches de Poste in French and in English.
Application for the AFN spot is open only to persons whose permanent residence is in Tennessee or to persons who are attending or have graduated from a university in Tennessee. Candidates must be American citizens and native speakers of English. They must also speak French well enough to communicate with the French speakers with whom they interact. In addition, they must show promise of the ability to teach children and of the ability to adjust to living in a foreign environment. Past experience in working with children and with living abroad would also be helpful.
After application materials arrive in Deauville, each applicant will receive an email from the director of the program, Ivan Rouault, setting up a time for an interview via Zoom. After all the interviews are completed, the intern will be chosen by a selection committee of the Office of the Mayor of Deauville.
The application will consist of the following:
- completed application form
- cover letter in English (to Ivan Rouault) with reasons for applicant’s suitability
- copy of cover letter in French (to Monsieur le Maire de Deauville)
- resume in English
- resume in French
- signed copy (printed and filled out by hand, not digitally) of both “retour” documents (doc1 and doc2)
- copy of first 6 pages of your passport
Please email all application materials (in PDF form) to Cecelia Ramsey on or before January 1, 2024.
