Teaching in France is an adventure for determined, high-calibre teachers unafraid to meet rigorous quality standards in schools, and resolute in their ambition to make a difference.
The French education system demands high standards but can provide huge progressive opportunities for successful teachers, as well as an idyllic way of life when you immerse yourself in all this beautiful country has to offer.
Understanding and speaking the language is a huge benefit but not a requirement and although it can prove difficult to save a significant amount of money, salaries are in-line with living costs.
Known for its relaxed lifestyle, Spain remains a top teaching destination amongst both experienced and newly qualified teachers because of the numerous teaching opportunities on offer. The warm weather helps too, of course.
There are a growing number of bilingual and local international schools in Spain, and teachers coming to this country must expect to deal with children for whom English is not the first language.

The draw of Italy is apparent to most. Steeped in culture, history and fascinating architecture that tell stories of times past; it’s no wonder that Italy remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Nestled amidst the Alpine villages you can expect to find some of the oldest and most exclusive international schools in the world in Switzerland.

Teachers working in Switzerland need to be at the top of their professional game. Teaching jobs in Switzerland are highly sought after and competition is fierce. Swiss international schools usually charge high fees to students, and therefore teachers’ salaries are higher than in most parts of Western Europe, as are academic expectations.
Experience Mediterranean life and work in top international schools, where a choice of Turkish culture (North) and Greek culture (South) make for an interesting and varied curriculum and way of life.
