Summary

Teach English Overseas

As a Teaching volunteer you will find yourself taking classes and/or assisting local teachers with their lessons. Often the local teachers are capable at teaching the structural aspects of the English language but lack conversational skills and correct pronunciation. The amount of lessons you are timetabled to teach will vary depending on the destination you choose.


We work with a number of different establishments, ranging from schools and universities to kindergartens and care centres. Your role as a volunteer is to improve the future prospects of your pupils. Knowledge of the English language is often a springboard for these young people into a good career.

Although most Teaching volunteers focus on teaching conversational English, there are opportunities to teach other subjects or incorporate your interests and talents into your lessons. We have volunteers teaching maths, sports, drama, dance, French and many other subjects. If you would like to combine teaching other subjects with your English lessons, just let us know and we will try to match you to a school where your talents will be put to good use.


We also welcome professionally qualified teachers for volunteering placements - this includes teaching English as well as other areas, such as science, maths, PE and special needs. These professional volunteering placements allow you to put your skills and expertise to the best use not only through teaching children but also through exchanging knowledge and ideas with the local staff.

In addition to teaching English, we also offer placements where volunteers can Teach IT. Volunteers are needed to help teach basic computer programmes, including Microsoft Word and Excel. We also welcome more skilled volunteers who are able to help with other programmes, developing databases, and social media. These projects are suitable for volunteers of all abilities!
