Teaching in Junior High School

Children at  Junior High Schools are aged 12 – 15 years. We offer placements among all classes of the Ghanaian education system at the junior high school level. Be a carrier break, summer break volunteer or internship we welcome your teaching in junior  high school.

Within the schools the basic subjects are taught regularly such as English, Maths, Science, Local Language, Religious & Moral Education. Computing is taught with the best will however usually this is from a text book as most schools don’t have access to a computer or laptop. Creative arts and music again are absolutely adored by the children however due to lack of materials these are mostly read and taught from textbooks.

Your volunteering or internship experience will help our local school improve the education we are able to provide to our students, by bringing new teaching methods and experiences into the school and by sharing your culture and background with the students and teachers. In addition, this will build your personal capabilities and be an asset on your CV.

During your time with us you will have the opportunity to meet new people, learn about our culture and customs, share ideas with us to improve our organization and travel the country.
