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 2017/2018, and 18 positions for French teachers in Ireland.
Application Deadline for 2017/2018 is February 17th 2017
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 2017-2018, you might also apply by the DES.
