Academic and Cultural Exchange Teacher Program



Global Teaching Partners is an Official Authorized J-1 Exchange Visitor Sponsor designated by the U.S. Department of State and recognized and approved by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and the South Carolina Department of Education (DOE). Global provides the recruitment, placement and ongoing support of international Academic and Cultural Exchange (ACE) teachers principally in K – 12 Math, Science, Elementary Education, World Languages and subjects of high demand. The ACE program is designed for international teachers to gain experiential knowledge of the U.S., participate actively in cross-cultural activities with U.S. schools and communities, and at the conclusion of their exchange, return home to share their experiences and their increased knowledge of the United States. In turn, educators in the ACE teacher program will inspire U.S. students to respect, appreciate and admire other cultures and develop and prepare thoughtful global citizens.

International teachers will be classified as Academic and Cultural Exchange (ACE) teachers, offered K – 12 teaching positions primarily in North Carolina and South Carolina (in 2016 – 2017), and allowed to stay five years prior to their required return to their home country. Once hired in the school district, Global will aid in their cultural transition and provide support throughout their employment.
