Teacher Exchange Program
Teacher Exchange to take a break
Due to the global reach of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on travel, accommodation, schools and communities, the International Teacher Exchange program has been suspended to at least 2022.
The IEU has been in constant contact with exchange participants who have been overseas in 2020, keeping abreast of changes that affect them.
Exchange coordinators and authorities are seeking the best way the 2020 program teachers and their families can return home, consulting with government departments on flights, quarantine arrangements and costs.
COVID-19 has affected all our lives in 2020 and the International Exchange Program Coordinators recognise the stress the pandemic has caused teachers.
We will keep you informed on when the program may be back up and running.
