Helen Valentine

I was elected Vice President for Secondary Education in September 2018.  I first joined the APEEEL1 management committee in 2014 and in 2015 was elected Vice President of Interparents (the association of all European School APEEEs) and since then have been one of two Parent Governors for the European School network.  Together with my colleagues I work hard to ensure that the voice of the parents is heard at every level of our school system in a consistent, clear and coherent manner.  My current area of focus is working towards the adoption of proposals to ensure improvements in the terms and conditions of employment for locally recruited teachers as well as important updates to the cost sharing agreement and terms and conditions for seconded teachers.  When not working for our APEEEL1 and Interparents, I am COO of FTS Global, a corporate learning and development company based in Luxembourg.  I have 3 children aged 15, 12 and 9.

I am always interested in hearing your views about what is good and not so good in our school – you can contact me at any time via the APEEEL1 office.
