Start educating

As the school holidays draw near, do you find yourself daydreaming about how you will spend your precious time off? Why not share your gift and skills with fellow teachers and students of the world! A plethora of travel opportunities await groups of educators each year with Travel Teacher.

 Our programmes offer opportunities for teaching professionals to travel, volunteer and learn in a variety of amazing settings. We encourage teachers to engage with another culture in a meaningful way and begin to cultivate a global awareness that will benefit them in their own job role. Embarking on a journey with us will also carry vital professional development and provide you with an invaluable life experience.

Taking a break from your classroom and doing something like volunteering in an international setting can lift you out of your comfort zone and into new and exciting experiences. You might even feel better for it! All you need to do is take that step.  Our programmes are built into the UK Schools academic calendar, so you won't even need to request time off!

Working with limited resources and staff lacking technical knowledge and training, you will be able to adapt and develop your existing expertise to a different working environment. You will face challenges not experienced in your home country, and through this cultural exchange you will learn different methodologies and techniques in your own discipline.

By volunteering to develop students and teachers through training and various approaches in our partnered communities you will help empower a community for generations to come.

It’s not all hard work! Volunteering with Travel Teacher is important and rewarding, but it’s also about trying new experiences, exploring, meeting people, and immersing yourself deep within authentic culture!  Half of your day will be spent in school whilst the remainder will be spent exploring with your fellow group members and our expert team.  We pack a huge amount into our expeditions to make sure you get the absolute most from your experience.

Your most significant experiences from your journey will be what you learn. Whether its learning about the people of the country you are serving and what they value, or taking home lessons of a lifetime about yourself, or even personal goals and accomplishments that you have achieved.

We strongly encourage you to check out our programmes to learn more about our life changing opportunities.
