German Expert Mentors (GEM) network

As part of the educational outreach programme GIMAGINE, the Goethe-Institut trains German teachers in a professional upskilling programme to become professional teaching coaches. GEMs (German Expert Mentors) will become part of a nationwide network of professionals, who share their expertise with colleagues. Schools will be able to request a GEM to visit their institution, increasing teaching resources as needed.
