IH Bydgoszcz is situated in a four-storey art deco building only a few minutes walking distance from the Old Town, with a gym and a cinema next door to the school. Bydgoszcz is well-known for its beautiful parks, including one across the road from school and the largest city park in Poland a 10-minute tram ride away.
Operating since 1992, it is a well-established, quality-focused language school and a Cambridge English Exam Centre. The school enjoys an excellent reputation for its teaching quality and experience, recruiting highly-motivated teachers for whom professional development is a key and life-long priority. The school and its students enjoy free Wi-Fi, an Internet room, a snack bar and multimedia facilities in every classroom.
The team at the school take great care to help teachers settle in to their new life teaching English in Poland, supporting their health and wellbeing.
The school has about 23 teachers and 6 support and administrative staff. Teachers join a multinational staffroom with colleagues from the UK, Poland and other European countries. When they join most are newly qualified in their first or second year of teaching, and some have a little more experience. All teachers help and support each other – the teachers room is always buzzing in between classes! So a lot of teachers stay with IH Bydgoszcz for more than a year, more than two or even more than three years.
