Ghanaian schools are structured in three main levels and operate under the Ghana education service. They include the Nursery/Primary schools, the Junior High School and the Senior High School. Our main focus is on the Primary and the Junior High School level, as it’s an age range that needs more help from you and other participants. You will be placed in one of the local schools and will be responsible for teaching students English and/or other subjects. Your role will be to offer inspiring and exciting lessons that will improve the literacy, numeracy, and communication skills of the students in your class. Help with issues such as lesson planning, discipline and cultural courtesies will be available from a number of sources, including local school teachers, the in-country staff and other participants. However, it is important to remember that your role is intended to be as independent and self-supporting as possible. This will enable you to develop greater self-confidence in your own teaching ability and organisational skills. Aims &Objectives : Improve the educational prospects of village children and widen their cultural interactions, Gain practical knowledge from your teaching experience, an invaluable life skill! Assist school staff, working hands on with students and infusing new ideas in classes.
