Locally Recruited Teachers Working Group

Teachers at the European Schools are either seconded by the Member States or locally recruited. The contractual conditions of locally recruited teachers (LRT) in Luxembourg is a major concern for the future development of the School.

APEEEL1’s taskforce on this issue provides strategic advice and research with a view to improving the conditions for LRT in Luxembourg. It coordinates and drives action at APEEEL1 level to support this goal.
