Volunteer Teaching Placements


A Projects Abroad Teaching placement is ideal for anyone wanting to make a positive contribution to communities across the developing world. No teaching qualifications are necessary and you do not need to know how to speak the local language. All that is required is a good level of spoken English and an enthusiasm to teach!

As a volunteer your role will include working either in an orphanage, school or university. 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.

Prior to departure, Projects Abroad will provide each volunteer with information on where you will be teaching along with a comprehensive teaching guide including advice, ideas and games. The students will benefit greatly from having you there. They will be keen to find out everything about you and why you chose to teach in their country.

Many volunteers help out in other areas too, taking extra-curricular activities such as sports and music lessons or drama classes. You can essentially choose to take classes in a subject you specialise in alongside teaching a language.

Projects Abroad also offer placements for teaching IT. These placements may involve many different aspects of computing, including the very basics, such as how to turn a computer on, to working with various softwares and social media.

We also accept qualified teachers on professional placements where you can put your skills and expertise to good use.
