On October 1 information was printed by Svenska Dagbladet implying that IES has a low percentage of qualified teachers. This was due to the fact that our well-qualified teachers from outside Sweden were not counted in the statistics they used.
We handpick outstanding qualified teachers from the around the world.
This year (2018/2019) 85 per cent of Internationella Engelska Skolan's teachers are qualified. 38 per cent have a qualification from a Swedish teaching education programme and 47 per cent from an English-speaking country.
IES schools provide up to half the lessons in English. Under Swedish school law our qualified teachers from English-speaking countries are qualified to teach in Sweden.
