Trip Details

Twice per month on Mondays, you can choose to participate in our gap volunteer teaching programme at a local school in Lovina. The curriculum consists of a variety of English-based subjects, offered in a playful manner to children from the local area and aged 5-12 years.

You can choose to stand in front of a class with other participants or individually. Each class consists of around 25 bright and cheerful students.

The experienced teacher will find the freedom to be creative and design their own lesson plans. This proves a refreshing change for some of our more mature teaching participants, who tell us it takes them back to the “good old days”.

Those with less or no teaching experience will have support and guidance from our teaching centre.

Trip Itinerary

Monday to Friday

Typically, you will be working at the kindergarten in the mornings then after lunch preparing lessons and organising activities for the following day. You can expect to be working for around four hours a day.

Following breaking on Monday you’ll prepare your first lesson plan. You’ll then have lunch and set out to your placement. At the local school, you will be meeting many children from various backgrounds. Once your complete your first day, you can then share your feedback back at the centre and enjoy dinner. On Tuesday and Wednesday you’ll once again prepare lesson plans after breakfast then head for the classroom. Dinner is again in early evening and a feedback session. On Thursday evening you’ll attend a special welcome and goodbye dinner at the centre then on Friday it’s school business as usual.
