Probationary teacher


Explanation:
En México el término pasante tiene un significado en especial en el sector educativo que es el "profesor en prueba" (aprendiz).


Hace un mes más o menos me tocó traducir un texto educativo de México.

Suerte!

Clerk


Explanation:
According to my legal dictionary a pasante is a law clerk, or in my experience is somebody who has some legal studies but has not yet completed his studies to become a lawyer.
