1. Our new venture German Graduates

The team behind ADC has now launched German Graduates, an initiative recruiting German speakers for permanent roles in London companies. Although this project is removed from our Erasmus+ eligible programmes, it's highly relevant news for all German and Austrian schools who are looking to expand the career prospects of their students and adapt to a globalised job market. Or, of course, for all our former German-speaking work placement students tempted to seek employment abroad. Please visit GermanGraduates.co.uk for more information.

2. Learn something new in the Spring with Teacher Development

Are you a teacher or school employee who is interested in developing further in your field? We are looking for participants for our courses, due to run in the Spring of 2016. You can sign up on our website (just follow the links below) or email our International Staff Mobility Manager iuliana[at]adc-tt.co.uk if you would like more information about the day to day schedule or how to apply for Erasmus+ funding. The dates are as follows:

Managing and Developing Self and Others: 4th - 8th April (one week)
British Culture & Society: 2nd - 6th May (one week)
Teaching Young Learners: 13th - 17th June (one week)

3. A new member of the ADC team

We would like to welcome our new work placement officer Gosia Janczewska to the team! If you are a London-based business interested in taking on European students for work experience, you can reach her at malgorzata.janczewska[at]adc-tt.co.uk.

4. London in March and April

Winter is finally over. If you're going to be with us over the next couple of months, it would be a good idea to browse through the upcoming city events on TimeOut London. March and April happen to be the home of Women's History Month, a Rolling Stones exhibition as well as beer, cider AND coffee festivals. Rejoice in the sunshine of springtime with some feminist literature, a pair of rock n' roll sunnies and a cold (or hot) one down by the river.
