“Be an eTwinning Ambassador – 2019” Campaign

The eTwinning Plus National Assistance Office – the Technical University of Moldova – launches a selection call for teachers wishing to obtain the status of an eTwinning Ambassador.

An eTwinning ambassador promotes the eTwinning concept and is open to continuous training, flexible and eager to implement the latest trends in education, to advance in projects, to participate and initiate learning events and partnerships that lead to their growth as teachers, leaders in the field of education and eTwinning ambassadors.
