Teaching Internships Abroad

Spark the potential for a brighter future.

Education is a powerful tool. Yet in many communities around the world, schools are often crowded and underfunded. Through a teaching internship with GVI, you’ll contribute to education programs that directly contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically Goal 4: Quality Education. From teaching English to programs focused on maths, science and business skills, you can make a lasting impact through education.

Overview

By participating in a teaching internship, you’ll gain career-boosting experience in education, while contributing to lasting change in the education system. Whether you’re working with local teachers to develop a curriculum, conducting academic research in a learning environment, or supporting a GVI team to assist with local education practices, your contribution will be felt long after your internship ends.

Empowering communities through education

Education breaks down barriers for growth and opportunity. When people have access to quality education, they’re given the chance to gain knowledge and skills and take charge of their own lives. While not everyone in the world has that access, at GVI we believe everyone should. Our programs are based in communities around the world where education access has been historically limited. You’ll work in collaboration with local teachers and build on the one-on-one support that students receive. Longer internships may also include a work placement at a local school.

During your education internship, you could also get involved in after-school programs focused on conversational English teaching for students of all ages. These are all important and transferable skills that will bolster your CV and increase your own employability. 

Why do a teaching internship with GVI?

At GVI you can be sure that you’re working with an organisation that’s committed to upholding ethical best practices on all of our teaching internships, volunteer programs and volunteer activities. This is evident by our badge of ethics.

We also constantly review our ethics and safety policies to ensure your experience is the best it can be. For example, GVI doesn’t support orphanage volunteering in any of our programs. For more information see our stance on orphanage volunteering and our regularly reviewed Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy

All staff and participants are required to complete a police background check before arrival on their chosen program, and on-site child protection training is provided once they arrive to volunteer. To protect children from cyber and real-world threats, we ensure that our marketing material follows child protection best practices.
