FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Apply in just three steps:
There are no fees to attend IES schools. Our schools are funded in the same way as those run by the municipality, through the Swedish tax system and the school voucher (skolpeng).
Teachers who move to Sweden to teach with us often arrive with little or no Swedish. But it doesn’t take them long to start learning, so they can get the most out of life here. We offer support to help them learn Swedish. Children at our schools often find themselves helping English-speaking adults on their own language journey too.
Parents can let us know if they prefer to speak only Swedish during development talks. If we are informed in advance we will make sure a Swedish-speaking member of staff is present to help translate.
