SOE wishes to strengthen links among teachers across Europe and their teaching institutions. To stimulate these links, SOE is pleased to offer a programme of 10 grants and welcomes teachers in active residency training roles in the institutions of Eastern Europe to apply for this programme. The programme is intended either as 2 week or 4 week visits to one of the teaching centers on the SOE list. SOE only supports educators that are actively involved with residency training either in University Hospitals, County teaching hospitals or in private settings with formal residency education programmes. SOE will support the successful candidates with an Teacher grant of 500 EUR. It is up to the applicant to make their choice based on their availability and agreements with the center they wish to visit. A short report to the SOE will be required after their return.
