The teaching staff are often overworked and therefore welcome any help that can be given. Working as a teacher?s assistant in the school and a career in the orphanage provides the staff with invaluable support and often frees-up their time to give the children the one-to-one attention they need. Your ability to speak English will mean that you can help with English lessons which can give the children a valuable skill and added confidence. You will also require a lot of creativity during your placement as lessons can be unpredictable and the needs of each child are unique. You should also be prepared to join in with games and other fun exercises, often geared towards giving the children the chance to express themselves independently. It is also likely that you will be able to get involved with manual work, such as repairing and painting the classrooms and school buildings. Aims &Objectives : Broaden your perspective to others that may not be as fortunate, Improve the children’s educational prospects and widen their cultural interactions, Provide you with teaching experience, an invaluable life skill!
