Teach English - Professional Placement in Hyderabad, Indi

Overall rating: 8.7 based on 1 reviews

Program Description

This placement is not your average children in an average classroom. It is also not your average Teaching English volunteer experience. You will be challenging yourself as a teacher, a volunteer and as an individual.
Our partner organisation has set up a "Bridge School" to ensure that homeless street children can also have access to an education. As an English Teacher, you will support these kids to reach a level of English that is standard for their age group, so that they can eventually be integrated into mainstream schools. You will facilitate the children's learning with the help of streamlined milestones, using and adapting lesson plans and teaching methods, which are supported by the government of India. The school will support you in your journey, and also provide timetables and opportunities to get involved in outside activities. You will also be responsible to connect with parents, visiting them regularly and updating them on the progress of their children.

This placement is a remarkable opportunity for personal and professional growth. You will interact with, and immerse yourself into, the world of children who have grown up in a completely different environment, often experiencing hardship. You will be challenged on a daily basis, adapting and refining your teaching style continuously. But overcoming the challenges and reaching milestones will be even more rewarding. You yourself will experience exceptional personal and professional growth as well.

Highlights

The impact of Bridge Schools on the life of children from difficult backgrounds is immense. They are offered a change at a better life through education. Being part of such an amazing cause is an incredibly rewarding and enriching experience. Volunteers will grow as a professional and as an individual. It will not be an easy experience, but one that will stay with you for the rest of your life. You will bring a new dimension to the learning and understanding of the children, and take on an important role in communicating the progress of the children with their parents - who often do not fully recognise the benefits of education yet. You will leave a better teacher and a better individual.

Qualifications

The ideal volunteer must of a minimum of 2 years of English Teaching experience. Teaching experience for children with learning disabilities is desirable, but not required.

    I have just completed a similar three month teaching placement with Skilled Impact, working in an underprivileged Social Welfare school outside of Hyderabad. I chose the organisation for their emphasis on volunteerism and not 'voluntourism' and the nature of the placement which seemed to give me a higher level of challenge and responsibility than other volunteer organisations. The teaching placement was an immersive experience that gave me the opportunity to teach extra-curricular English where there was a strong need. Skilled Impact differs from other organisations here that are volunteer-oriented, focusing on profit or the 'experience' of the volunteer rather than the work's recipients. They are a professional and supportive organisation and Anna, the Managing Director, has been great to work with throughout.
    Now, having just completed the three month placement I have decided to stay on with the organisation to do their Social Entrepreneurship Internship!
