International Volunteer Academic Credit. Unit: Teaching

Join Reach Out Volunteers to make a real difference in impoverished communities and help protect endangered wildlife.

The ROV International Teaching program provides pre service and qualified teachers the opportunity to teach in an international environment under the supervision and alongside locally qualified teachers. On this 28 day program participants will gain experience teaching in an alternative culture employing local pedagogy.  Participants will have the opportunity to observe classes being taught by qualified teachers, to discuss teaching and learning priorities with supervisory staff, have the opportunity to develop practical knowledge and skills and be responsible for delivering lessons.

Unit Description
