International School Jobs in France

Teaching Jobs in France International Schools

Most of the international schools in France are located in large urban centres such as Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Lille and Nice. There are fewer international teaching jobs in France for foreigners to be found in smaller towns and rural areas, but a few of these are beginning to emerge. Whilst many international schools offer full K-12 provision, some specialise in early years, primary or secondary education. Primary teaching jobs in France are among the most commonly advertised. Most international schools in France are accredited and deliver an internationally recognised curriculum such as the International Baccalaureate, US Common Core/AERO, or the British curriculum. Teachers of most grades and subjects should be able to find teaching jobs in France international schools.

How to Find Teaching Jobs in France International Schools

Teaching Jobs in France International Schools

International school jobs in France adhere to the Western academic calendar, with teaching from September to June or July. There will often be two intakes for new hires, one in September and one in January. The hiring process for teaching jobs in France for foreigners will normally start towards the end of the previous year, from around October onward. It is important to note that not all vacancies are open to expats – management and support roles are most often filled locally. The most commonly posted opportunities for foreigners teaching abroad in France include early years, primary, and secondary teaching openings, principal and coordinator positions, SEN and learning support teachers, as well school counsellor and teacher librarian vacancies. English is the language of instruction in most international schools in France. However some schools are bilingual. A teacher’s licence, QTS or similar is normally required for teaching jobs in France international schools.

  2. Hello Wishlist team! This is Gabriel Mihalache. I am a qualified class teacher and teacher of English. I have been working in Kuwait for 16 years in British schools using the British curriculum. This summer, I and my wife, a Montessori teacher, decided we would like to relocate to France starting next school year, 2020. It is quite early to start looking for jobs in international schools in France, but we are very certain and determined to leave Kuwait for France, and we want to start early.
    Before we start applying formally to any international schools in France, we’d like to get a good idea about a possible salary, family accommodation and other benefits usually offered by schools there. As my 13 years old son would be in the same school with me, I also wonder if I would get a discount on his school fees.
    I hope you’ll be able to answer my questions soon. If you need me to provide any other information, CV and degrees later, let me know please. My email address is: mcgabrielbv@gmail.com
    Respectfully yours,
