In addition to national teacher programmes, CERN offers two international teacher programmes: The 3-week High School Teacher (HST) Programme and the International Teacher Weeks (ITW) Programme, which lasts 2 weeks. Both programmes are delivered entirely in English and are open for teachers from around the world. The goals of CERN’s international teacher programmes are:
- To support teachers’ professional development in the field of particle physics.
- To promote the teaching of particle physics in high schools.
- To facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience among teachers of different nationalities.
- To stimulate activities related to the popularisation of physics within and beyond the classroom.
- To help CERN establish closer links with schools all around the world.

The application process for both programmes is open 1 November 2017 - 13 January 2018!
