Teaching in an international school offers educators a unique opportunity to work in diverse and multicultural environments.

Salaries for teachers with a Bachelor’s degree and limited experience range from €30,000 to €45,000 per annum, while those with advanced degrees and extensive experience can earn up to €70,000 or more. Another example is The International School of Toulouse, located in the vibrant city of Toulouse, which provides a favorable compensation package for its teaching staff. Salaries typically range from €35,000 to €55,000 per year, depending on qualifications and experience.

It’s important to note that in addition to base salaries, international schools in France often offer various benefits such as accommodation allowances, health insurance, professional development opportunities, and retirement plans.

  22. I’m an MFL teacher in England looking to relocate to France. I was wondering what the prospects are in international schools for MFL teachers. Do they prefer natives? I teach Spanish and French and can also offer Italian (Spanish and Italian to A Level and French to GCSE). Would it be better to try to get a job as an English teacher? My degree is also in English Literature so I am qualified to teacher English GCSE and A Level. I’m looking for a job in Bordeaux or any other Southern big city.

  27. Hi,

    I have 20 years of experience as a theatre practitioner and would like to look for another new vacant position as a drama/theatre teacher in any distinguished organization for 2023-24.
    I have also experience working with IB students for their CAS projects and experience in PSHME. I’m seeking new ways to expand my educational career, and I’m excited to know that my professional training and expertise in my field of study correlate with your requirements and educational vision. I am also a visiting faculty member at Calicut University in Kerala and a research fellow at India’s Ministry of Culture. I am also pursuing TEFL /TESOL post-graduation from the Asian College of Teachers Bangalore which will help me to help ESL students through Drama lessons and the course will complete after 6 months.
    I’ve been honored to collaborate with internationally renowned theatre artists and theorists. I’ve directed several theatrical productions. I think theatre will help students’ imaginations, confidence, and concentration to explore their artistic vision, critical thinking, and beyond to enhance the multiple perspectives in life. My current organization has a six-month notice period.
