Cultural Exchange Ambassadors
Applications for the Cultural Exchange Ambassadors programme 2020-21 are now open. Deadline: 18 January 2021
Cultural Exchange Ambassadors are English & German Language Assistants working in the other country. The programme provides Ambassadors with the opportunity to meet each other, partner up and run bilateral projects together.
“This project was definitely one of the highlights from my Year Abroad. It was a great experience for myself and my students.”
Get involved as a Cultural Exchange Ambassador!
With the challenges of both German language learning in the UK, and the impact of Covid-19 on international school exchange, it’s more important than ever to bring language lessons and intercultural learning to life. This programme provides your students with the opportunity to connect meaningfully with their peers in the other country, whilst discovering a new culture!
Important – Before applying you should:
- read the following information very carefully
- look at our Ambassador projects from 2020 to get a feel for the programme and what the role involves
- speak with your mentor teacher and your school to make sure they support your application. They can read more about the programme on our advice for schools page.
