Every year, upper secondary schools in Viken have the possibility to express interest in hosting a language assistant and Viken’s administration then matches them with potential candidates. If you are accepted in the program, you will be matched with one of these schools. An Erasmus learning agreement between you, your host school and your university will define the specific objects of your internship.
Students in Norwegian schools are between 15 and 19 years old. They range from beginner level to confirmed users and we are therefore looking for candidates that will adapt to our students’ knowledge and will inspire them to keep learning the language.
Our program gives interns an immersive experience into the Norwegian school system. In the course of the one to two semester internship, you get to assist teachers with the preparation of classes and evaluations. As a part of the teaching staff, you also participate in school planning meetings and administrative tasks linked to school life in an upper secondary school. The content of each internship is based on the school’s projects but also your profile, knowledge, and interests, making each experience unique.
As an intern, you will be followed up by a tutor or a contact person in your host school. You will also be invited to follow up meetings by Viken’s administration.
