Teaching staff seconded to the European Schools are recruited by an official selection procedure organized by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. It is annually published in the Spanish Official State Gazette, usually in the last quarter of the year.

 
Eligible candidates are in-service civil servants. The process involves two different stages: in a first phase, candidates’ professional, training and service achievements are valued based on a scale. Then candidates sit examinations designed to check their pedagogical and education planning skills. Their knowledge of the official host country language is also checked (B2 level).
