Teach in Livingstone, near Victoria Falls!
from £795 GBP
to £2095 GBP
You will normally assist the teachers to start with, but depending on your ability, you may be given complete control of a particular class or group. You will receive a lot of help and support from the teachers and staff at the schools to help you prepare for your lessons and settle you into your role as teacher.
The schools we work with, although private, are very poor schools that need as much support from volunteers as possible. You may be asked to teach anything from English to Maths and Sports to children aged between 2 and 16 years. If you have skills or knowledge of Drama, Dance, Music or Arts & Crafts, you'll be able to teach these as well.
In addition, for those of you who enjoy sports, you will be glad to know that sports are also a very popular subject for the children, and they would love for you to help out with the game periods which the schools have. The facilities are poor, but football and volleyball have quite a following. Some sports take coaching takes place throughout the day, but most is after 3pm for an hour or two.What you'll gain from doing this project:
- An exciting, never-to-be-forgotten adventure into real Africa.
