Volunteers work alongside local teachers as an assistant, teaching students in primary schools, high schools or even those at university level. As part of our long-term development goals, you will be involved in helping to improve the learning environments for students around the world. Resources across our destinations vary, and classes are often overcrowded. Your help is much appreciated, especially when it comes to giving students vital individual attention to support their studies.
You don’t have to be a teacher to volunteer on our Teaching projects, and there is no need to have a TEFL qualification to gain to gain experience in any of our destinations. Furthermore, you don’t even need to speak the local language. Our Teaching programme is open to all volunteers whether you are on gap year, at university or wanting a career break. All we require is a good standard of spoken English
What subjects can I teach?
Volunteers have several options when it comes to Teaching abroad:
- Teaching English: One of our most popular projects is Teaching English, where you will work to improve students’ written and verbal language skills through educational activities, lessons and fun games.
- Teaching IT: Basic technological know-how is a vital skill in today’s world! By teaching IT skills to students, you will make a great difference to their chance of future success.

Volunteers usually find themselves assisting with other subjects, as well as running extracurricular activities such as arts or sports. If you have any special interests or skills, do let us know when you apply. We will then try to match you to a school where your talents will be put to good use. if you’re more interested in coaching children than working inside a classroom.
