Professional visits [fr]
The French Education Ministry and the Department of Education and Science have agreed a pilot programme to place Irish teachers in French post-primary schools for a period of two weeks and the same visit of French teachers in Ireland.
The scheme aims to promote teacher mobility; to encourage the European dimension in education; to strengthen links and relationships between schools and teachers in Ireland and France; to promote languages and teachers’ professional development; to encourage professional dialogue and the sharing of good practice; and to facilitate the setting up of exchange projects between teachers and students.
18 positions for Irish teachers in France are open for 2019/2020, and 18 positions for French teachers in Ireland.
Application Deadline for 2019/2020 is February 15th 2019 - late application may be considered. Don’t wait!
You don’t need to already have a partner school in France to apply.
If your school just wishes to receive the visit of a teacher from France in 2019-2020, you might also apply by the DES. Write to Eileen_Boyce@education.gov.ie
