Volunteer jobs in teaching and education
VSO volunteers support education programmes in 17 developing countries to ensure that every child has access to a quality education.
You could be designing learning resources, developing the next generation of teachers, or creating new school management policies. All to create deep-seated change to practices and systems.
"You can really understand the essence of being a teacher, sharing your professional knowledge to help other people"
Simon Gana, VSO volunteer in Rwanda
