Applications to exchange teach in Australia for the 2019 calendar year are now available. Applications are due in early January 2018. To download an application, please use this link to go to our Exchange Programs page.
The full-year direct exchange involves trading jobs and housing for an entire year with a teacher from Australia. Minimum qualifications: 4 1/2 years of teaching experience, 3 years in the current school district (be non-probationary), 3 years since a previous exchange, a current state educator license, and district/school approval. Families accompany the teacher. Visit our Exchange FAQ Page for more information.
It is strongly recommended that all applicants attend an Informational Meeting. These will be held early in the 2017-2018 school year. Visit CITEL’s Calendar Page to find a meeting near you.
The Colorado State Commissioner of Education and the State Board of Education endorse this program as an excellent staff development opportunity. Educators from other states are welcome to apply as well.
The program is facilitated by CEA and the Colorado International Teachers’ Exchange League (CITEL).
