The majority of international schools in Spain can be found in large urban centres such as Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, and Seville.

While some international schools offer full K-12 provision, others specialise in early years, primary or secondary education. Primary teaching jobs in Spain are common. Most international schools in Spain are accredited and deliver an internationally recognised curriculum such as the International Baccalaureate, US Common Core, or the National Curriculum for England.

  6. I am looking to retire after my last year teaching in South Korea at Seoul International School in 2023 at the age of 63. I want to look into living in Spain, and then possibly subbing or doing tutoring for an International school — would that be possible? Not sure about age limits — could you please let me know who I can contact if you aren’t able to help me?

Lastly, I have no problem engaging with students and can create healthy relationships with the students as well as the faculty.

  20. Hi, I’m an Irish citizen living in Andalusia. I have over 10 years teaching experience but in ELT. I have 3 years experience teaching English to children. I’d like to transition to working in an international school. My undergraduate degree was a general arts one which included English, anthropology and psychoanalysis. I’ve heard in some cases schools will hire based on Teaching experience if you don’t have a teaching post-grad. I’m wondering how I might successfully make a transition. Thank you
