Stage de Nouméa is a three-week long immersion and study experience for teachers of the French language, led by International Languages Exchanges and Pathways (ILEP). The programme is funded jointly by the French Embassy in New Zealand, the Government of New Caledonia, and the New Zealand Ministry of Education.

Applications for places on the programme, and the associated funding, close this year for the 2014 experience on 28 February.

During Stage de Nouméa, teachers normally live with a local New Caledonian family. The main study aspects of the programme include school observations, intercultural inquiry and formal language classes at the University of New Caledonia.

Who can apply?

Preference will be given to:

  • teachers who have completed the Teacher Professional Development Languages (TPDL) programme or similar in-depth PLD programme
  • teachers involved in curriculum levels 1 to 4 of the Learning Languages area of the curriculum
  • teachers with a minimum level of French A2 Delf language proficiency
  • those who are engaged in the PLD programmes for the teaching of Learning Languages from Consolidation stage onwards.

Participants will be determined by a selection committee, based on eligibility criteria that can be found at the ILEP website (see links).
