Teachers


The team of tutors at Aljezur International School has taught together for many years.  Their educational and social philosophy is based on students achieving to the best of their abilities and being encouraged to develop a sense of belonging to a community, both within and outside school.  An awareness of global, national and local issues is instilled in students.


Staff turnover at Aljezur International is extremely low which means that tutors and students have time to form a strong and trusting bond.  Ex-students keep in touch with us and frequently return to school as guest speakers, providing advice and guidance to current students.  

All our tutors are qualified to at least degree level and are registered at the Ministry of Education.  The process of registration includes international police clearance and the verification of tutors' academic achievements.  A full list of tutors' qualifications and experience can be examined on request.

An important part of our identity as professional teachers is that we have worked together as a strong and supportive team for many years.  Our job satisfaction comes from guiding and inspiring each student to become the best they can be whilst observing their development as they learn and grow as individuals.  Our core group of tutors is by no means exclusive; individuals from all walks of life are frequently invited to give guest lessons, presentations and talks to students.

School lunches are provided by local resident Dona Ilda.  Every day a different type of soup is on the menu as well as fresh sandwiches and daily "treats" such as fatias douradas or popcorn.  Dona Ilda also gives the students regular cookery classes where they learn to make local dishes such as caldo verde and sonhos.
