Working for Internationella Engelska Skolan


Internationella Engelska Skolan in Sweden is looking for certified, native English-speaking teachers to teach English, Maths and Science. Certain other subjects are also taught in English, but this varies from school-to-school. We also recruit native Spanish and French teachers to teach those languages at both middle and upper-secondary school level. We offer you the chance to work with dedicated school leaders, clear policies and routines, a strong and proven vision and enthusiastic colleagues in an international setting.

The central pillars of what we offer our students are:

  1. To command the English language – the key to the world.
  2. A safe and orderly environment, where teachers can teach and students learn.
  3. High academic expectations.

For middle-schools, students attend school for 178 days per academic year, teachers for 194. The standard teaching contract for teachers is twenty-four 45 minute lessons, with 15 minutes preparation time per lesson (totalling 24 clock-hours). In addition to this, teachers have various other on-site academic duties (averaging 10 hours per week) such as extra-help classes, departmental meetings and the mentorship responsibilities for their students. Mentor teachers are also expected to contact the parents of their mentor students every two weeks. In addition to this, teachers are expected to provide at least one extra-curricular activity each week.


All contracts follow national and local union agreements. Salaries are commensurate with your qualifications and professional experience and are negotiated annually in accordance with the union agreements.
