German Teacher Exchange Scheme


This scheme allows Irish teachers of German to visit second-level schools in Germany for the first term of the academic year. Similarly teachers from Germany visit second-level schools.

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 in the area of oral/aural skills.
