Teaching and education

VSO works in education in 17 countries. Our education volunteers are part of a global effort to make sure every child can access quality primary education by 2015.


You'll be working alongside local colleagues, helping them develop their teaching methodologies and practices. That might mean helping teachers across several schools to build their confidence in the classroom. It could mean working with education authorities on curriculum development and school management. You might even work to make sure teachers are better valued, developed and supported.
