There is considerable variety in the range of subjects taught by volunteers, which include English, sports, information technology and life skills for people who have disabilities, as well as many others.
You will typically work with children aged 3 - 10 years. Outside of the classroom you will be providing companionship as well as devising and leading fun activities for the children.
A formal teaching qualification or TEFL certificate is not a requirement to participate in the volunteer teaching projects. In fact, after orientation you may well be teaching on your own with the guidance of a qualified teacher. Alternatively, your role will be to assist local teachers. Certainly your presence on the program will make a significant contribution to the improvement of the pupils’ conversational English.
In many instances, the local teachers themselves gain from contact with English speaking volunteers. You will provide increased exposure to spoken English and hence boost their confidence. Both the school's pupils and its teachers, by advancing their language skills, improve their chances of a brighter future.
