IETM Staff Exchange 2019

Our Staff Exchange Programme offers our members a unique opportunity to gain a short but valuable international experience by joining the team of another member organisation and hosting a professional from abroad. The duration of an exchange programme may vary from 1 week to 3 months or more.

The programme is aimed at helping you to get an insight of different working practices and professional cultures, to learn new approaches to deal with your tasks and exchange know-how with your international peers.

Participation is open for any staff member of your organisation - whether manager, professional, technician, artist, project coordinator, trainee or volunteer. The only condition to take part in the Staff Exchange Programme is to be a member of IETM. However, individual members can only take part in the exchange if they can provide a valuable experience within an established organisation for a visiting staff exchange participant.

Application deadline: 4 March

What happens next?

All the applicants will be welcomed at the preparatory meeting, which will take place during the IETM Hull Plenary Meeting, 28 - 31 March 2019. So, if you apply for the Staff Exchange Programme, please make sure to register for IETM Hull and plan your trip in advance. If you are eligible, you may apply for our travel grant which can cover up to 75% of your travel and accommodation expenses in connection with attending the meeting.

The preparatory meeting will allow you to get to know other participants, present yourself, and select the organisation(s) (up to 3 options), which you would like to join for an exchange experience. After the meeting, you will be invited to communicate your choices to our team.

We will try to meet the wishes of all the participants, and the exchange as such will take place between April 2019 and March 2020. 

The participating organisation is expected to cover the travel costs of its staff member going on exchange and to provide accommodation to the person they will host.
