exchange ESL teaching jobs?

Unread post by ridersam » Mon Jul 14, 2008 10:51 pm

I'm an EFL teacher working in a further education establishment: ENAC, the state aviation school for training various types of student such as engineers, pilots etc. The school is situated in Toulouse in the southwest of France. I'm hoping to exchange with someone abroad, for 6 months or a year. The other teacher would not necessarily have to have experience in the sector of aviation though that would be helpful.
The exchange can only be conducted with someone who works in a state institution and where their school wants and is able to participate in such a scheme. The advantage for the school is to have a member of their staff gaining valuable experience in an aviation school of international stature. For the teacher involved it would also be to discover the great lifestyle and culture of people living in the south of France.
The idea is that we would both keep our current jobs to return to at the end of the exchange period.
If you think you might be interested and would like more information then please don't hesitate to contact me by mail. And if you yourself are not able/interested but know someone who might be please feel free to send this on to them.
