About TESOL-SPAIN:

TESOL-SPAIN was founded in 1977 as an independent, non-profit making Spanish association of English language teachers. Today, TESOL-SPAIN is a nation-wide organization with a membership that represents all sectors of English language teaching in the country.

TESOL-SPAIN is an associate member of two international teacher associations: TESOL Inc and IATEFL. We also maintain strong links with local teachers’ associations in Spain and abroad.

POSITION STATEMENT AGAINST DISCRIMINATION 

 

In compliance with Article 21 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, TESOL-SPAIN stands in opposition to discrimination against teachers on the basis of their national, ethnic or linguistic background, religion, gender, gender identity and sexual orientation, in terms of hiring, promotion, recruitment for jobs, or employment conditions.

With respect to the common, long-standing notion, unsupported by research, that a certain ethnicity, accent, or national background gives a person an advantage as a teacher of English, TESOL-SPAIN firmly believes that all teachers should be evaluated and valued solely on the basis of their teaching competence, teaching experience, formal education and linguistic expertise. Therefore, TESOL-SPAIN does not condone job announcements that list "native English," "native command of English," "native-like fluency," "standard accented English," or similar, as required or desirable qualities.
