Overview


On this program you will have the opportunity to run educational classes alongside local teachers. You must be currently practicing as a teacher or enrolled in a teacher training institution. You will observe classes being taught by qualified teachers, assist in the teaching of English, mathematics, hygiene and sport at the Reach Out Volunteers Charity School in Cambodia.

This program is a 28 day, hands-on field placement in an international educational setting. The focus will be on teaching English to predominantly, but not only, primary school students. As the primary language of students is not English, classes in English will have to be developed with an ESL focus. Shorter duration opportunities to assist local teachers are available however you will be unable to take a class as the supervising teacher unless you are there for the full 28 days.
