Five exchanges with teachers in Germany will be arranged on a post‑to‑post basis during the school year 2021/2022. The exchanges will take place during the first term, (September - Christmas) for a period of around 13 weeks.
The scheme provides Irish teachers with a unique opportunity to perfect their knowledge of German and the experience of working in an educational system different to the Irish system. The Irish pupils benefit from the presence in the school of a native speaker of German, with particular gain to the area of oral/aural skills.
The closing date for applications is 15 February 2021.
