Assistantships under the Comenius sectoral programme provides post-graduate teachers the possibility to work as an assistant in a host school in one of the 27 member states and the four participating countries namely Turkey, Lichtenstein, Norway and Iceland. Comenius Assistantships offer these individuals an opportunity to view an alternative teaching environment as well as to work in another educational system.
Under the Comenius Assistantships initiative, schools may also have the possibility to host an assistant. This opportunity is ideal for schools who wish to provide their pupils with additional language learning skills by having a native speaker assist the local teacher in teaching a foreign language at the school. The benefits can also be gained in cultural terms as the assistant working in the host school can offer their cultural experience to the students and teachers they work with.
