In Calling Academy’s first year, a remarkable article about the school was published in the influential German newspaper, Die Zeit. Professor Jan Springob from the Centre for Teacher Education at the University of Cologne decided to visit Calling in 2018. His desire was to seek out enriching international teaching possibilities for his students during their student years.

Our aim of giving Calling learners global exposure and perspective would be well served by such an initiative. In January 2020, Mr Möritz Schuetz became the first student teacher from Germany to spend time at Calling Academy. With international travel only recently resuming, the hope is that this programme will be revived in January 2023.
