Our Philosophy

Our especially designed training programs are for those teachers and educational providers who are interested in adding a European dimension to their careers and who want to get valuable insights into other cultures, especially in terms of education and formation, i.e. the diversity of ideas and concepts.


European Exchange also believes that the European idea, spirit and identity can best be understood and lived by cooperating with qualified professionals, associations and institutions on location.


We furthermore enhance the European dimension of our courses under the Erasmus+ and Erasmus K1 program by working with multinational individuals and trainers with different background. Our goal is to show an overall image, to engage participants and to enable deep self-reflection.
