I was just wondering what the job market is like for Educators in the Netherlands. I am interested in learning and being part of an International school. Currently, I have been a middle school and high school Principal for 10 years in the US. I have been reading about both the culture and schooling approach and I am very interested.

Thank you for any insight regarding the job need for educators in the Netherlands.

Hi Blueyeagley,

That's great! When are you hoping to move? The job market for teachers may vary across the Netherlands, particularly based on the language of instruction and whether there are international schools following an international curriculum in the area. I do not speak from personal experience, so I hope that someone from the Netherlands can reach out to you regarding the job market for teachers, educators and school administrators. Have you contacted any potential schools yet?

I can direct you to the Expat Arrivals guide on Education and Schools in the Netherlands. It is written more for expat parents relocating with children than for educators looking for work opportunities, but that page, and other pages on our guide to the Netherlands can help direct you. We also have international schools listings for cities in the Netherlands (Amsterdam and The Hague), and it's work checking out their websites for job openings:

I hope this helps, if you have any further questions or updates on your search, feel free to ask or give feedback!

Kind regards, Claire

Thank you.  I have looked at several, but struggle with finding a sense of need.  I noticed there were not that many recruitment groups...So I was not sure how read into that.  Thank you for the info...I plan to speak with a few schools directly after I look more into structure and inner-connectivity of districts and groups. 

Thank you!
