Volunteer abroad as a Teacher!
Education is the key to a prosperous future, however many schools in developing countries are extremely under funded and find it hard to attract talented, qualified staff meaning that teachers are often overstretched and the quality of teaching is low. As a Teacher you will draw upon your own educational background to fill this gap while mentoring and educating students and supporting fellow staff. The scope of your teaching role will depend on the needs of your host country. At some placements you may be given sole responsibility for a classroom of children and be expected to teach all subjects in the curriculum to varied age ranges, at others you’ll support the existing classroom teacher. Schools may call on volunteers to teach a wide variety of subjects, so you’ll need to be creative in the use whatever resources are available to teach your students what they need to know. You’ll most likely find they teach you just as much in return.
