There are lots of teaching jobs in Norway but they all basically require Norwegian language skills at upper high school level. Sometimes if you are a language specialist you can get away with very little Norwegian. Norway does have a few international schools with English as the main language of instruction. These are usually found in the bigger cities that have an international population due to the oil and mining industries. There is one particular international school in Stavanger that must be rotating their teachers this year because they are advertising for nearly every position possible in the school. So, if you are a QUALIFIED teacher and want to work in Norway without speaking Norwegian fluently, here is your chance! Job advert from International School in Stavanger
