Teaching in the South Pacific
Impact the lives of numerous children by volunteering on one of our Teaching placements in the South Pacific. You don’t have to be a teacher to join one of these projects, and there is no need to have a TEFL or TESOL qualification. You don’t even need to speak the local language where you are volunteering. The Teaching programme is open to all volunteers, whether you are on a gap year, at university or wanting a career break.
A variety of opportunities teaching English are available in urban and semi-rural settings within Fiji and Samoa. Volunteers have the opportunity to teach students in primary schools, and often work alongside local teachers as collaborative counterparts. You also have the option to teach Physical Education, and other additional subjects if you wish to do so.
Teach in the South Pacific - What is it Like?
Most schools in Fiji and Samoa are equipped with educational tools, and students tend to have a good grasp of English grammar. As a teacher of English, you will fill in the gaps by helping students better their pronunciation and conversational skills. You may find that the greatest tool and bridge for effective learning is yourself. The students will want to find out about you, the country you come from, and your interests; topics that can be incorporated into many language lessons.
These Teaching projects are not only excellent for your personal and professional development, they are also a wonderful opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of students.
