The Department of Education and Training partners with the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Korea and Asia Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU) to facilitate the ROK-VIC Teacher Exchange Program.
The Program aims to promote mutual understanding between the two countries through the exchange of teachers and to provide participating teachers and schools with opportunities to teach abroad and build a network with foreign schools.
The program is a reciprocal exchange program that involve Korean teachers being placed for three weeks in a Victorian host school where they observe classes, co teach and gain insight into school operations. Participating Victorian teachers arrange homestay for the Korean teacher during their visit and later go on a return exchange to Korea for three weeks.
Details regarding the 2016 program, including specific dates, are yet to be finalised but applications to participate in the program will be advertised through DET mail and be made available on the DET website at http://www.education.vic.gov.au/school/principals/management/Pages/educators.aspx
Victorian teachers interested in finding out more about the 2016 program can send an email registering their interest to Daniel Yong at: firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘ROK Exchange Enquiry’ as the subject.
