Project Description:

Find volunteer work in India with this exciting project that offers you a TEFL certification course and the chance to practice your English teaching skills at one of India's government and private schools.

 

India’s government is continuously looking to improve the quality of English in the country, especially in disadvantaged and underprivileged rural communities.  Therefore, schools and agencies are eager to bring native English-speakers to Thailand to teach, giving students the English education they need to succeed.  This project aims to give volunteers the necessary TEFL certification course and teaching practice they need to find employment, when they return to their home countries.

 

Tefl Course: Prior to your English teaching experience, you are requested to attend an intensive 4-week Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) course in your home country. Here you will learn the skills and methodology needed to teach English. This will include classes in Language Acquisition, Classroom Management and Lesson Planning. During TEFL, you will have the opportunity to meet the other students in the course and will receive all the necessary teaching material. Certified teachers will provide you with 120 hours of classroom training in preparation for your placement. After passing the exam and completing the course requirements, you will be awarded a globally recognized TEFL certificate, detailed report and letter of recommendation.

Teaching Experience: Now that you have received your certification, you will begin the 2-week teaching experience of the project, working at a local government school. The school is located in the underdeveloped area of Bangalore region and rural district of Krishnagiri, in the state of Tamilnadu. You will teach children aged 6 to 12 with varying levels of English. For your first 8 hours of teaching, you will be under the supervision of an experienced TEFL qualified project manager.
