Short-term Exchange Program
IEU members working in Brisbane, Cairns and Toowoomba Catholic schools or Queensland Anglican schools can participate in a two-week exchange to Alberta, Canada.
There is no visa or teaching authority requirements for short-term job shadowing.
Exchanges will occur over breaks and holidays that stagger with the host country’s school schedule.
Participants cover all travel and living expenses.
Each participant will billet their exchange partner for the two (2) week short-term exchange period.
Australian teachers will host the Canadian short-term exchange teacher mid-year and be able to job shadow in Alberta in either the Australian September or December school holidays.
Short-term exchange participants will be matched through shared or similar areas of interest and professional experience.
