International School Jobs in Spain

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. There are fewer international teaching jobs to be found in smaller towns and rural areas, but these are beginning to emerge. 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.

  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

  48. Good afternoon,

    I hope you are safe and well.

    My name is Kevin Gonzalez. I am primary school teacher in Nottingham (UK).

    I took my Elementary Teacher Degree at Alicante University (Spain). I finished my degree three years ago and, since then, I have done different courses related to Education. Last course I completed was teaching Spanish as foreign language.

    Besides, I have lived in Nottingham for 2 years. During my first year I was working as a Flight Attendant and Amazon. I chose those jobs in order to improve my English skills. At the same time, I had applied to QTS and Teacher reference number.

    Since January my only job is being a Primary school teacher in Nottingham. I am really happy with my current role.

    However, my couple and I are thinking about coming back to Spain.

    From my point of view, I would be the right person for this position. My English is really good due to I am teaching every day British CV subjects using English as a main language. I have passion for what I am doing and I am enthusiastic about starting a new teacher position in my country.

    If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.



    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Kind regards
