TITLE:                       Teacher Trainer

REPORTS TO:          Head Teacher

This is an exclusive opportunity for someone who seeks to volunteer for a not-for-profit organisation with strong ethical standards and high integrity. Our Hands-Across-the-World volunteers are a selected group of professionals who proud themselves in contributing to HATW’s mission to influence Cambodia’s education system.

Hands Across the World (HATW) provides teacher training to Cambodian teachers who are working or volunteering at a non-government school with little or no formal teacher training.

We make it our mission to empower locals to spread quality education with outcomes that effect the children of Cambodia in a positive and sustainable manner.

We train the teachers to implement quality teaching techniques and a sustainable outcome focus. These teachers then spread their skills and knowledge within their remote community schools to the children.

This is a 30 weeks interactive, high quality teacher training course, weekly on Saturdays from 1-4:30pm. In this course you, as the trainer, will evaluate the struggles, aims and needs of the teacher-trainees and take these into consideration while training these teachers to be the best they can be in their class.

As with all positions, it is expected that the mission, core values and vision are exemplified by the individual filling this role.

Our volunteers are the key in our effort to broaden the margins of society. It is their work, their reaching out, that changes lives, including their own.

We encourage people to apply who live in Siem Reap and have a strong desire to help people, have an interest in people of another culture and believe as strongly as we do that education is the key in the prevention of child exploitation, slavery and poverty. If you feel this role is for you, HATW would love to hear from you!
