Looking for international teaching positions?

Do you feel stalled in your career? Whether you are seeking to develop professionally, change up your regular routine or set off on a new adventure, perhaps the change you’ve been looking for is abroad. Have you thought of whether an international school is the next move for you?

International schools bring together students and staff from around the world, and can offer a teacher the opportunity to develop their skills in multicultural communication, English as an Additional Language learning, leadership and more. At the British School in The Netherlands, teachers choose to come to the Netherlands for all different reasons, but they find the community within and around the school to be inspiring and welcoming.

Taking the Leap

We asked some staff to share what inspired them to seek an international teaching experience.

I spent the summer of 2014 travelling around central and southern America by myself. It was the first time I had ever travelled on my own and decided to throw myself into the deep end. During the summer my eyes were opened to the possibility of other cultures and, by the time I returned to the U.K, I knew there had to be more to experience than what I already knew.

– Louis, Junior School Teacher

I wanted to see a different country. Thought I would do one year abroad and then go home. That was 12 years ago.

– Matt, Deputy Head (Learning & Teaching)
