Specialist online teaching course now included FREE for volunteer teachers



Teaching in developing countries can be a challenge for even the most qualified teacher, never mind aspiring students and volunteer teachers.

Not only are you dealing with your own confidence levels, in a different culture & country, but you are also working in an environment that has fewer resources available for you to use.

That is why we have partnered with LRTT, experts in teacher training in low resource environments. LRTT have years of experience in both training local teachers in developing countries, as well as volunteers going to teach abroad.

Their online teacher training for volunteers is specifically designed to introduce volunteers to the key principles of teaching in a limited resource environment and to prepare you for your volunteer teaching placement.

Over 3 hours of online tutorials, backed by Q&A sessions and downloadable materials, you should expect to learn such essentials as how to:

  • Plan an effective lesson
  • Make lesson content relevant to pupils
  • Manage behaviour in the classroom
  • Use a variety of questioning techniques
  • Differentiate lessons for struggling learners
  • Differentiate lessons for fast learners
  • Use group work in the classroom effectively
  • Assess pupils learning effectively
  • Provide effective marking and feedback to pupils
  • Use a range of takeaway activities

This is an invaluable part of your preparation, developed by professionals working in developing countries, who share their experience, best practice, hints and tips to make your volunteering placement more successful.

To support this great initiative, we are offering this course FREE to volunteer teachers who book in 2016. For volunteers who sign up, we will gift you a coupon to redeem with LRTT for their online course.

So not only do we include all your arrangement fees, your food & accommodation, insurance, airport transfers, project transport, language classes in many countries, and always the invaluable support of our experience country coordinators, we now also offer specialist online teacher training for volunteers going to teach formally in schools.
