Teaching Jobs in Spain

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. Teachers of most grades and subjects should be able to find teaching jobs in Spain international schools.

  5. 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?
