If you are a native or learned French speaker you will be welcomed into schools to share your knowledge. There is often a shortage of French teachers to work in schools. You will work alongside local teachers but usually end up teaching your own class. You will have about 18 hours of teaching time working in the school or university Monday to Friday. In some cases volunteers will do a combination helping to teach some English and some French.
Teaching Extra is a programme where you can join one of our teaching projects working in schools in a variety of subject areas. You might want to help teaching sport, teaching music, teaching art, teaching drama, or another subject that you specialize in. You don’t need to be a qualified or experienced teacher to join the programme, and you are sure to receive a warm welcome from the schools we work with who are so keen to work with our volunteers. Teaching volunteer and student The schools we work in are generally poorly resourced but full of students eager to meet you and work with you.
