International Teachers Week Programme
The International Teacher Weeks (ITW) Programme 2020 will take place on 2-15 August 2020!
This residential programme, which took place for the first time in 2017, is open to high school science teachers from around the world who would like to update their knowledge of particle physics, its associated technologies, and related subjects in a group of science teachers of different nationalities.
The ITW programme contains lectures, on-site visits, hands-on workshops, discussions, and Q&A-sessions. Furthermore, during the 2 weeks, all teachers will collaborate in several study groups on various topics related to particle physics and its integration into the classroom. All study groups will deliver their final reports at the end of the programme. Therefore, all applicants should:
- have a good working knowledge of the English language (the entire programme will be delivered in English)
- be committed to attending in full the 2 weeks of the programme (no late arrivals, no early departures)
There is a dedicated programme website for the ITW2020 programme (indico.cern.ch/e/ITW2020), which will be updated closer to the start of the programme. For detailed information about CERN's international teacher programmes, their objectives and how to apply, please have a look at the FAQ.
The application process for the ITW2020 programme is open from 1 November 2019 until 20 January 2020. It is strongly recommended to complete and submit applications well before the deadline to avoid last-minute problems, which might result in an unsuccessful application.
