If you are a French speaker or fluent in other foreign languages you will be welcomed into schools to share your knowledge. There is often a shortage of French teachers to work in schools in Ghanaian communities. You will work alongside local teachers but usually end up teaching your own class. You will have about 18 hours of teaching time working in the school or university. In some cases volunteers will do a combination helping to teach some English and some French or Spanish.
The facilities where you work are often basic but the students will be keen to meet you and find out about you. Once you have applied the desk officer will get in touch with you to find out more about your preferences and give you more details about the school where you will be working. It is best to bring some of your own resources whether it is pictures of your friends and family or some postcards of where you live. You have a real opportunity to introduce French or Spanish to Ghanaian students. Teaching Plus - teaching sports, drama, music and other subjects.
Teaching Plus is a program where you can join one of our teaching projects working in schools in a variety of subject areas. You might want to help teaching sport, teaching music, teaching art, teaching drama, or another subject that you specialize in. You don't need to be a qualified or experienced teacher to join the program, and you are sure to receive a warm welcome from the schools we work with who are so keen to work with our volunteers. The schools we work in are generally poorly resourced but full of students eager to meet you and work with you.
