Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

School Assistant Placement
Some of the duties you might become involved in:
• Helping in the boarding house - pastoral care and supervision
• Helping with sports coaching, music, art, and drama
• Supervision of the outdoor education program, camps, field trips and excursions
• Before/after school care and running of extra-curricular activities
• Work in the school office or library. Other administrative duties.

Outdoor camp Placements
Outdoor camps provide outdoor education and recreation program for organised groups in stunning locations around Australia. Some placements also provide education on the Australian landscape and Aboriginal culture.
To be considered for Outdoor placements you need to have a love of the outdoors, ideally have experience of outdoor activities and be confident working with children. As the placements are in remote areas, you need to be prepared to make your own fun at night time (not for people looking for a city-experience!) and accept that you will not be going to the city every weekend.

Indigenous Education Placements
Your duties may include (depending on your skills and interests and the needs of the placement): help with boarding duties, tutoring English and maths, helping with sport, drama, working in the medical clinic, and outdoor camps as well as occasionally assisting teachers in the classroom - one to one tuition with pupils/group work. None of the Schools placements in Australia will require you to teach a class.


Live and volunteer in Australia to be immersed in the local culture and community. Enjoy the outback, live it up in the bustling cities, and explore the northern tropics. Give back to the local communities through education initiatives and develop new skills through this volunteer opportunity.


You must be finished (but not necessarily graduated) from high school and be between the ages 17-25.

Outdoor Education placements also require that you have Standard First Aid, or preferably CPR-C.
