    Primary Teacher Trainer (Volunteer)
    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. 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.

    Role overview

    • You'll support them in the development of primary education and advise them on the following: coaching tutors on active and child-centred methods, training pre-service teachers, developing curriculum, ensuring resources for training are operational and accessible, monitoring and evaluating input and output of implemented programmes, advising on teacher motivation.

    Skills, qualifications and experience required
    • A primary teaching qualification and a minimum of 3 years teaching experience in primary education.
