How it works

After a successful application, participants will receive a teaching assistantship and be assigned to a primary or secondary school in Styria. Throughout the programme, the Directorate of Education of the Styrian Government will provide support both on a practical as well as on a content level. Through the partner institutions involved, an introduction to the Austrian school system and its regional Styrian aspects, language instruction, as well as courses on education and pedagogy will be offered. Webinars as well as participation in the Graz International Summer School Seggau will ensure a successful experience. An extensive debriefing session will be part of this unique programme and will provide a basis for reflection on the past experiences as an outlook on possible future teaching opportunities.

What you need to know about Steiermark…

Steiermark – the Green Heart of Austria

Steiermark is not only the most popular holiday destination for Austrians but is also known as an attractive travel destination far beyond its borders.

Scenic diversity, that ranges from the glacier on the Dachstein to Graz and into the wine country. Globally active companies in the fields of industry, science, technology, and research.
An intact environment, safety, affordable housing and living. And secure employment opportunities for a good work-life balance. All that and more make Steiermark a particularly great place to live. And yet, Steiermark does not just impress with its beautiful landscapes and culturally rich experiences, but also with excellent working conditions, a well-developed infrastructure, highgrade education, and top healthcare facilities.

The Green Heart of Austria is also best known for its outstanding educational landscape. All these factors combined make Steiermark a well-rounded place to live, work and learn.



"Getting to know other cultures and languages is always enriching. It is my goal to attract people to our education system in Styria on an international level as well and I am convinced that teachers, students and pupils will learn a lot from each other."
