We carefully select our teachers to maintain the friendly atmosphere and community spirit that you feel the minute you set foot in the door.
On a practical side, we’ll help you to find suitable rented accommodation and provide free Italian lessons to make it easier for you to settle in and to make friends with the local community. At the end of your contract you’ll also get a bonus.

About the school and City

IH Palermo London School has been developing great teachers for more than 30 years and enjoys an excellent reputation in Palermo, the capital city of Sicily. The school is strategically located in a modern, residential area of Palermo, a 20- minute bus ride from the city centre and the lovely ‘Mondello’ beach. There are plenty of facilities in the area which cater for all your needs. Even if the nearest bus stop is only a 5- minute walk from the school, many of our teachers prefer to cycle around the city which is a feasible alternative to public transport, given Palermo’s sunny Mediterranean climate.

The school has bright, colourful classrooms, all equipped with laptops and projectors. The students tend to be a pleasure to teach as they are generally lively, outgoing, communicative and fun.

Palermo is lively, welcoming and has plenty of great food. It has the largest historical centre in Europe and was voted City of Culture in 2018. The location is stunning. The city is surrounded by mountains and the nearest beach is only a short bus ride away. Last but not least, the cost of living is much cheaper than in the UK or in cities in the North of Italy.
