Change the lives of Malawian children and have your own fulfilling experience at the same time by joining this program as a teacher aide in a Malawi school. Meet a new generation of eager students and be a part of their future as a Malawian Teacher Aide!
You will work beside friendly local school teachers, who will provide guidance and lesson plans for you to work from, based on their own curriculum. Throughout this life-changing program, you will have the opportunity to take part in games, experiments, and other activities during English, science, and math classes.
If you love teaching and being around children then the Malawi teacher aide program is something you will really enjoy. The schools that we have developed relationships with are all in desperate need of teaching support. These are schools with an established curriculum, and your role will be to assist the regular teaching staff in teaching this to larger classes.
Placements vary, and you may find yourself working in either an orphanage, public, primary or secondary school around the Mangochi area. Your placement depends on the local communities needs at your time of arrival.
Through this opportunity, you will get to see Malawi and understand the local culture in ways that tourists rarely get to experience. You’ll come away from this with an insight into a different culture, language and education system, as well as the knowledge that you’ve made a difference to the local community.
The first day is a more of an introduction, where you will be shown around the school facilities and eased into the program. You will spend this day in the classroom environment where the teachers will get to know you and understand your own abilities, before assigning an appropriate role for you.
You will be teaching for roughly five hours with a lunch break in between. You will have the opportunity in the afternoons to prepare your lessons and activities for the following day. A typical day on this program might look like:
