Improving Communication since 1994

At IC we don’t only pride ourselves in producing the best possible service for our students, but also developing our teachers to be the best that they can be.   Do you want to work in an environment where you can share, learn and develop as a teacher?  Do you want to work in a highly motivated and confident team of people from diverse backgrounds? If so, we could be the school for you.

We are located in Bilbao, one of the largest cities in the North of Spain. Although just a short metro ride from the seaside, there is the feeling of a small capital city. The Basque country enjoys a slightly cooler climate than the 40ºC+ of the south, however, we still get to enjoy long summers of a more reasonable 30ºC+ as well as enough rain to give us our beautiful green landscapes. Bilbao is home to the world-famous Guggenheim museum and boasts some of the finest cuisines in Spain. There are also good train and plane connections to major European cities as well as other parts of Spain. If you like good food, nice people, mountains and the seaside, Bilbao might be the place for you.
