The posts include 30 teaching roles and 30 “chargés de cours”. Starting September 2017, the new school will offer a French-speaking section from years 1-5 at primary and year 1 at secondary level. Pupils can be enrolled in the German stream at year 1 of primary and year 1 of secondary school while places are available in years 3, 4 and 5 in the English section.
The EID first opened in September 2016 with English streams in primary and secondary education. At the start of the school year it counted 36 learners in the English stream, of which 21 were in primary school. The EIDE follows the European school education system with the addition of Luxembourgish classes.
Minister Meisch was reported by Quotidien as saying that demand for the English section had been greater than expected during the school's first year.
