Are you interested in teaching and want to find out more before applying? Then why not try one or more of our Get into Teaching Experiences?
Build a stand-out application for teacher training through a series of on-line masterclasses and seminars with expert teachers and mentors and short project-based assignments. You will also be given the opportunity to create resources for our charity schools in Kenya and Laos to support teaching and learning there.
This skills development programme is back for the 3rd year and we are very much looking forward to working with those of you who are considering a career in this very rewarding profession.
The aim of the programme is to allow you to find out about the profession and the routes into teaching, but also provide you with a range of opportunities to sample teaching and create a stand out CV for a future application.
The sessions have been carefully designed around the current teaching standards and will enable you to build a portfolio of evidence. You will also be given the opportunity to support teaching and learning in Kenya and Laos by developing teaching resources for their staff, as there are currently a lack of teacher training programmes in both countries. This will not only support the teachers and students abroad, but it will also allow you to make a difference to people overseas and create a superb CV. You will also be issued with a “Guaranteed Interview Certificate” should you wish to apply to YWTT in the future.
The session details are shown below. You may want to attend all of the sessions or some of them. All sessions will be recorded to view on-demand should you also have any prior commitments.
