 Project Details

During term time most of our work is conducted in local schools. The assistance we provide is aimed at helping to alleviate the workload of the teachers, together with the sharing of ideas and cultural understandings.

Teachers in Ghanaian schools often have multiple classes, with more than 40 students in each, and will also teach more than one subject. The contribution of our volunteers allows teachers to reduce their workload, thereby allowing them the opportunity to concentrate on smaller groups and teach in a more focussed way.

Ghanaian and Western teaching methods can, but the presence of our volunteers offers an opportunity for the exchange of ideas that will hopefully benefit the school and teachers as well as our volunteers.

Due to our focus on quality delivery and a lasting positive impact, we encourage volunteers to apply for not less than 4weeks duration within the school term.

Requirements: Volunteers should hold a formal teaching qualification (e.g. PGCE, TEFL), or must have past experience in a teaching environment. References will be required.
