This volunteer position is appropriate for those who are new to teaching English and need support and training to plan their lessons, for example gap year abroad travel programmes, as well as those with more teaching experience. You will teach children in local public schools as well as at the SKIP project.

We are currently looking for English teachers to teach in both our primary and secondary programmes.


The English Teaching Programme

Our team of English teachers usually numbers around eight people. We conduct lessons in a local public school, and also in classes at the SKIP centre.

We take a dynamic approach to teaching the children and so lessons are activity-based and interactive. There are lots of games and songs to keep the children engaged so they can enjoy learning in a fun environment. These methods differ greatly from those used in Peru and it is extremely rewarding to see the children keen to study English and learn more.

Under supervision of the English Teaching Coordinator, who is a qualified EFL teacher, and following a written curriculum, volunteers will plan and deliver lessons with a co-teacher.
