IES as a workplace
Internationella Engelska Skolan is a truly international school. We have staff and students from all over the world contributing to a dynamic international atmosphere that everyone benefits from and enjoys. Our schools are bilingual with up to 50% of the education in English and follow the Swedish national curriculum.
Internationella Engelska Skolan (IES) has played a significant role in changing the face of Swedish education with a clear focus on quality teaching and learning. Our schools regularly win awards and are at the top of the academic results tables which has contributed to a long student queue.
The school group was founded in 1993 and is today the fourth largest educational provider within grundskolan (compulsory school) in Sweden. As of August 2021 more than 30,000 students attend our 43 schools in Sweden.
We also have seven schools in Spain with 4,700 students. For us this is just the beginning.
Our ambition is to open more schools so that we can make an IES education available to more students.
Our schools in Sweden are free of charge for all students, and entirely funded via the municipalities and the school voucher system. Our schools are open to all and we accept applications from students on a first-come, first-served basis.
