Beacon of Hope Uganda operates primary schools in needy communities in Uganda. The Volunteer will work primarily as an instructor of English in our school. The Volunteer may also be asked to assist in other school activities such as sports and other extra-curricular projects

The placement consists of teaching the subject of English to school children for 2 to 4 lessons of a day, with each period running for 45 minutes.

The English volunteer teacher will be required to teach 5 days a week. Saturday and Sunday are days off for the volunteer to enjoy some free time and there are occasional public holidays during the school term. Depending on school size, class numbers vary from 15-60 in a class.

A local teacher will assist you in conducting classes during your first week to address any language barriers or concerns that may arise.

However, if one is confident enough, you are more than welcome to apply your own teaching blueprint.
