Description

Program Description

Most people in Nepal can’t afford to travel, and in the villages, there is little chance of contact with the outside world. Foreign teachers enable students to form relationships with someone from another background and culture, and the teachers can learn different teaching methods and techniques. You will mainly assist the regular school teacher and so do not need to have any teaching background.

Through our education project we just not only teach the course but it brings positive change in them which helps the children to be self-motivated and independent. ETC (Educating the Children) is the main concept of this project. Making children able to deal with daily activities through education is what we do. Giving knowledge that is applicable practically in life defines ETC. Aware children of the surroundings, environment, health and safety are the focus of our teaching. Educate Basic/Conversation English and other subjects of your choice to children from different age groups (5 to 16yrs.) with different capabilities. You will teach at small local schools and foster good relationships with the children as you assist with extracurricular activities and inspire them to achieve their full potential and broaden their perspectives through creatively structured lessons.

You will also teach and educate children from different age groups and with different learning capacities. You are free to use different methods to teach but you can use the coursebook as a reference or educate children through conversational and spoken English. During your time there you can teach them different subjects e.g. mathematics, history, science, geography, computer, technologies, music and other subjects, arts and crafts, different educational games, spoken and conversational English, personal development, environment awareness, general health and safety and so on. All higher education in Nepal is in English, so it is vitally important that children must learn English to continue further higher education. A trained teacher is committed to raising standards in schools in Nepal, and with an adult literacy rate of 67%, there is plenty of room for improvement.

During the project, you will gain valuable experience and learn by observing the procedures of the in-house teachers. The project can take place in either government, private or community schools around Pokhara.

You will be taking different classes. You will be taking four to five classes a day. The schools usually have a very dull curriculum, so out-of­-the-­box activities and creative experiences such as sports or games are more than welcome and really appreciated by the children.
