Incoming Staff (Teaching)
Staff Mobility for Teaching Assignments (STA) is a field of activity that allows HEI teaching staff of a partner higher education institution (holding ECHE) to teach and carry joint academic/educational activities at ISTE.
ISTE is a Programme Country HEI awarded with an ECHE and the incoming staff should be sure of the existence of a signed inter-institutional agreement between the sending institution and ISTE before the mobility takes place.

STA is a daily basis activity and a grant payment is made for the lecture days. For this reason, in the Staff Mobility for Teaching Mobility Agreement a specific teaching program must be indicated on a daily-basis.
The purposes of STA may be summarized as follows:
- to provide teaching staff with opportunities for personal & professional development
- to share expertise in specialist areas within teacher education, to deepen mutual understanding of different European Education Systems and to raise the profile of the European Dimension in Education
- to allow students who are not able to participate in mobility to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of staff in other European institutions
