The U.S. Department of State and IREX announce an open competition for a program that will bring outstanding secondary-level school teachers to the U.S. for a professional development opportunity. The International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP) provides international teachers with unique opportunities to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills and increase their knowledge about the United States. ILEP consists of a semester-long non-degree, non-credit academic program at a U.S. university including seminars on new teaching methods, curriculum development, lesson planning, teaching strategies, and instructional technology training. As part of the academic program, participants will work in groups to develop a unique teacher professional development module. Participants will also audit two courses in the host university’s School or Department of Education and participate in a field experience in a U.S. secondary school near the host university, during which participants work closely with U.S. teachers and teach and present to U.S. students. All participants will receive a technology allowance and instructional technology training. Cultural enrichment, mentoring, and support will be provided throughout the program. ILEP will commence in January 2017 and conclude in May 2017.
After returning home, teachers will be eligible to participate in a small grants program to request funds for essential teaching materials, follow-on training for other teachers, collaborative projects between their home schools and U.S. schools, and other activities that build on the exchange experience.
*TOEFL scores are not required at the time of application. If you are short-listed for interview, USIEF will administer the TOEFL or an equivalent of English proficiency test.
You are required to submit an online application along with supporting documents.
Please note that USIEF will accept only online application form from Indian applicants. No paper application will be accepted.
