ECP with trainee teachers

Headmaster Nigel Brown and Senior Deputy Head Tony Emmerson have recently returned from the UK. They met over 120 trainee teachers interested in our ‘Teaching Together in Europe’ placements. There was great enthusiasm for the project, and we expect applications from a wide array of talented young (and not-so-young) people entering the teaching profession.


A small group of trainee teachers from the UK will spend a term at the College. By helping to develop and mentor new teachers, we will further enhance our status as a beacon of innovation and professional learning. It will encourage us to engage with our own teaching skills, while helping to develop the next generation of young teachers.


Tony Emmerson says, ‘The Teaching Together in Europe programme will open up a new world of student and teacher exchanges and learning experiences. It will keep ECP firmly connected to our British roots, while also promoting the spirit of collaboration and internationalism in UK schools.’

TTE will provide teaching placements for trainee teachers. The three prestigious schools taking part are the ECP, St George’s British International School in Rome and the British School of Brussels. They are all members of HMC, and COBIS Training Schools. They all have the same academic aspirations for their students and are public benefit schools.

This is an innovative programme, led by the ECP, which educators have welcomed as providing an international dimension to teacher training.
