• What is ITTS?

    The European project ITTS International Teachers for Tomorrow’s School – System Change as an Occasion for Intercultural School Development and Mutual Learning aims to support the professional re-integration of international teachers and teachers with a refugee background.


    Cultural diversity is an essential feature of school landscapes all across Europe, but the professional re-integration of international teachers, including refugee teachers, is fraught with many challenges. ITTS wants to support international teachers in a strength-oriented way and to enable schools to integrate new colleagues in the sense of an intercultural opening of schools.

  • How?

    • International teachers are strengthened through resource-oriented approaches.
    • International teachers, mentors and school administrators are able to critically reflect on their ideas of school normality and to derive changes in everyday practices.
    • The thematic concerns of the project are anchored in formats of teacher training and further education.
    • A country analysis and materials for various target groups will be developed.


    Institutions of seven countries are working together in ITTS:

    • KU Leuven, Belgium
    • Bielefeld University, Germany
    • University of the Aegean, Greece
    • Intercultural Iceland, Iceland
