If you have a passion for travel, teaching or helping the less fortunate, then teaching abroad could be a perfect adventure for you.
Teaching abroad will allow you to develop priceless skills such as leadership, training, languages and cultural understanding. These can transmit into any career, whether you choose to carry on teaching or head into a completely different direction.
You can now become part of teaching projects almost anywhere in the world, whether you want to teach sports, dancing, music, singing, English, maths or science, to name just a few, there is a project to suit you.
You just need to decide what you are passionate about teaching, and where you want to teach – you could travel to Europe or further afield. The internet is full of websites and organisations that can organise the whole trip for you, but just make sure that you fully research the country, project and website before you commit to anything.
Remember that teaching and travelling will always present challenges, but the rewards (for you and the community you are helping) are invaluable.
To give you some ideas, here are our top three teaching opportunities;
- Use your voice! If you’re worried that you have nothing to give, remember that you are fluent in one of the most popular languages in the world. The English Language is taught in schools all over the world, so if you are keen to apply yourself and learn how to teach a language, this could be a great option for you. You will probably find that you learn some of their language during your stay too.
- Do you have a sporting hobby? If you have a hobby which you really enjoy and are good at, why not teach that! Football is a great example, so many play in this country and those skills could easily be used to teach the sport to young people abroad. There are a range of sports and activities you could teach, check out our Sports Volunteering page for more information.
- Do you have a talent? If you are really good at maths, science, dance, or even if you can play a musical instrument, these skills can be put to great use by teaching them abroad. Research the countries you would like to visit, and see what teaching opportunities are available.
