You may apply but you should note that the selection is competitive. Those who have experience of teaching, particularly in the UK or of other relevant work with groups of young people aged 11-16 may be in a stronger position. Any knowledge and understanding you may have of the English education system is likely to enhance your application. If you are based in the UK it would be helpful for you to try to visit a UK school before applying. If you are not able to do this, you could do some research on the Internet. Recommended sites are the Times Educational Supplement (the newspaper is available in UK newsagents every Friday) and Eurydice – the information network on education in Europe (the Eurybase database provides information on the education systems in each country).
