The Lycée Technique du Center in Luxembourg explains how it integrates students from all over the world successfully—and three alumni share their experiences
The Lycée Technique du Center (LTC) in Luxembourg holds a special position in the country’s educational system. Luxembourg is a multicultural country with 48 per cent foreign nationals, comprising 170 different nationalities. And the school has a history of welcoming a high proportion of students who are migrants and creating an inclusive atmosphere.
Mariette Kauthen, IB Coordinator at the school, explains: “We were the first secondary state school to offer insertion classes in 1989 for our years 7 to 9, which allow recently arrived students from all over the world to start learning French or German. (These languages are traditionally taught to Luxembourgish students from a very early age.)
