Assistantships in New Caledonia

The Vice Rectorate of New Caledonia will offer four English Language Assistant positions in 2016. This is a wonderful opportunity to discover New Caledonia and its culture, and to improve your French.

The 2015 campaign for the English Language Assistant positions is now closed

Please visit this page in early 2015 for more information on the 2016 recruitment campaign.


This programme is aimed at students who intend to become French or English language teachers, or teachers with little to no experience. It is not meant for experienced teachers.


Candidates must be Australian citizens. Permanent residents are not eligible.

Candidates should be between 20 and 35 years of age at the time of taking up their positions (from the end of March 2016). They should also preferably be single, as the salary of an assistant is not adequate to support dependents.

Candidates must be enrolled at university at the time of application, and they must have completed at least two years of university studies.

Role of the Assistant

Tasks to be carried out by the assistant include:

  • Providing help in the classroom in oral and written English with small groups of students for 12 hours every week.
  • Providing linguistic and cultural assistance to teachers.
  • Making recordings on tape for the audio-visual resources of the school’s library.
