Description of School:

Do you dream of doing something meaningful that makes a difference?

Welcome to Älmhult kommun - where the opportunities to make a difference in people's everyday life are great! We need committed employees who want to be involved in shaping our municipality going forward. In Älmhult you combine the advantages and charm of the smaller town with a unique international atmosphere. Here it is easy to live and stay and you are close to everything. Good communications also make it easy and convenient to commute.

Ikea has a strong hold in Älmhult and contributes a lot to our school when it comes to funding but also in other interesting collaborations eg through the Kids Lab where students can support in their new designs.

The International School of Älmhult is a warm, friendly and welcoming school. We are truly international in many senses. There are over 40 different nationalities and backgrounds represented amongst our students. We also strive to employ a diverse community of teachers. This year we can boast teachers coming from 30 different countries. We are an IB school, which means that we are progressive and work to develop the skills for the 21st century and prepare our students for an ever-changing world.

ISÄ is a member of a newly founded Playful schools leadership network, as a pioneer school, that strives to inspire and to become more playful. In our teacher collaborations our focus is teacher inquiries connected to the effect on learning and research. The current number of students is 440. 2017, we moved into our new home: a modern and eco-friendly building, with a lot of open space and light. The school is within walking and cycling distance from almost everything in Älmhult.


As a Special Educational Needs teacher at ISÄ, your main task is to provide an environment for staff and students to thrive regardless of their individual needs and to support the development of Universal Design for Learning in our school. In this role you help both students and teachers to remove barriers for learning. You support students on an individual level or in intervention groups. You will also need to form a good bond with parents and initiate meetings, to plan for support or evaluate support. In this role you also help teachers. You support teachers on individual and team level, in their professional development, through presentations, workshops and through modeling and reflecting and giving feedback on individual practices. You need to collaborate and will have an integral part in the teaching team. In this role you take an active part in the Student Welfare Team, where you use your expertise to support with strategies for individual students. In some cases, you are also a link to external support for individual students. You also take an active part in student admission and transitions for leaving students and work to contribute to smooth student-transitions within our school. We expect that you also take part in creating a positive school community, for example, by taking part in arranging celebrations or service projects.


The successful applicant will have an appropriate level of education (university or similar) in Special Pedagogics, and a bachelors degree in teaching (preferably Language or Math). We are looking for someone with IB experience, who has attended relevant IB courses.

The right candidate should also be used to various technological aids, apps and programs, which can be used to help enhance learning.

The applicant must be a flexible member of a team, and able to respond to the needs of a vibrant, dynamic workplace.

You must be excited by the development of the school and be able to think independently to make good decisions and take positive actions. Our school is multicultural, and we hope the candidate will see the benefits of working in an international environment with different nationalities and language backgrounds, and that the candidate is open-minded. Collaboration is a key word in our school. Our current program development goal is to improve Wellbeing in our school. We would like you to support this development and take part in wellbeing classes, support the development of a playful culture and also support the implementation of the sexual education curriculum, which we hope will become more central in our school.

In this role we would like to see a person who takes action and can model good strategies, when it comes to seeing the good in the students, knowing the power of words and modelling how to set boundaries and managing student behaviours
