Work for Internationella Engelska Skolan

Do you want to work in an environment where teachers can teach and students learn? Watch this video to find out why IES is a special place to work.


Welcome From The Founder

To speak English "well" is not enough in today's world, writes Ms Barbara Bergström, the American science teacher who founded the English School in 1993.

Young Swedes should acquire a total inner security when speaking English. Our schools offer the best environment for achieving this. An important part of our success is that we provide a secure environment for teaching and learning. Schools should have a calm environment where teachers can teach and students learn.

These founding ideas have laid a solid ground for success. Internationella Engelska Skolan is today the largest free school organization at the compulsory level ("Grundskolan") in Sweden. Some 25 600 students attend our 36 schools around the country.

We recruit the best teachers from around the world.

Our schools are places where teachers can teach and students can learn.  This is possible  because of the strong emphasis Internationella Engelska Skolan places on creating a safe and calm environment which is conducive to teaching and learning. That environment helps everyone to concentrate on their lessons.

All of our staff pull together to create the best learning environment through the school so that rather than using time and energy to establish the preconditions for learning, our teachers are able to step into the classroom knowing that their lessons will start on time and then run smoothly and without disruption.
