The Local _ Newcomers _ Swede with a US teaching certification

Posted by: kerostarfx 30.Aug.2018, 01:24 AM

It's been about 8 years since I was last active on this forum. I'm American, and I am currently in the process of negotiating an expat assignment from the US to Stockholm.

My husband is Swedish, and is an English teacher (and department chair) at a high school in the US. He has his Texas Teaching Certification and his Bachelor's in English/Education. I was able to find the certification transfer process on the Skolverket website, but the process seems to take 4-6 months. Has anyone been through this process? Did it really take that long? Also, what is the current job market like for teachers?

Any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you!
