Project Overseas is a program of the Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF) under which educators from across Canada volunteer their time in the summer (three and five weeks, most often during July) to work with co-tutors in host countries to present professional learning workshops to teachers in host countries.
All expenses are paid by CTF and the affiliated federations. Some past host countries include destinations in the Caribbean and East Africa.
ETFO participants are recommended to the Executive by ETFO’s International Assistance Committee after applicants have successfully progressed through a two stage selection process that includes a thorough review of their application and references and telephone interview.
ETFO sponsors 14 members each year to participate in Project Overseas.
Application forms and information will be available at the end of August with applications due October 30th, 2015.
