The sphere of education is challenging, although it is easier to deal with challenges when you can see how others are overcoming them and have a network of acquaintances. To provide you with this support, we have launched Study Tours for professionals in the sphere of education.
A study tour is similar to an excursion. You will go to Europe in a group with a clear plan for each day, together with a guide. The significant difference is that instead of landmarks, you will visit European colleagues at their workplaces. During the study tour, you will learn straight from professionals in the field and ask them any questions you have. We will plan the journey and cover your expenses, and all that we ask in return is for you to share some of the best practices with your teammates in Ukraine.
We open calls for study tours twice a year: in the spring and autumn. Follow this page or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when your call opens.
This is for trips covering hot-button themes
We will launch tours on hot topics for the Ukrainian Education Sector: decentralisation in education, elementary education, inclusive education, innovative education, and vocational education. The themes of the visits may repeat, but each trip will be slightly different, and each time we will refine the programme and decide on another country.
This is for those who want everything to be planned
We will arrange all the planning, you think of all the learning and having fun. We will decide on the country of destination, events you will visit, and transportation. Our guide and translator will accompany you throughout the trip.
This is for new acquaintances within and outside Ukraine
We only accept individual applications, but you will not be on your own. Other talented Ukrainians will accompany you on tour. Your professional network will be enriched both by colleagues from Europe and other regions of Ukraine.
This is for professionals in education
We offer study tours for professionals who have been working in education for at least five years. We have trips for school staff, vocational education managers, experts in inclusive education, specialists working in education reform, and designing new training methods. Each study tour is targeted at differing professionals, so make sure to read the description of the opportunity carefully.
