Description

WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?

Fiji is renowned for its spectacular beaches and coral reefs: a picturesque string of islands floating gently in the Pacific Ocean. This is true but as a picture of Fiji it is incomplete. Fiji also has impoverished rural populations who as yet have not been able to capitalise on the booming tourist trade in the country. Your teaching can help them have a brighter future. 

After seeing the impact that our teaching projects have already had on Fiji, you'll soon see that education is a crucial part of achieving sustainable development. By teaching in these rural communities volunteers can make a real difference to the lives of young people growing up in Fiji, learn more about life as a teacher in Fiji and contribute to establishing sustainable development programmes. We recommend staying for at least four weeks to allow the children and teaches to get used to you, and enable you to make the most constructive contribution to the community!

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Your work schedule will cover a comprehensive, varied and enjoyable teaching programme following the national curriculum, at a fantastic school in Suva. Your work will engage you fully with your pupils and will awaken your creativity and initiative. Volunteers help teach the children of all ages at primary and intermediate school level, working a full school day five days a week. The variety of options, from teaching in a less developed mixed primary to a well reputed all boys primary is what makes teaching in Suva, Fiji's Capital City, a once in a lifetime experience. You may be directly involved in the administration side of working in a school by helping to mark pupil's work, report writing, data entry and paperwork as well as helping to produce an inspiring teaching strategy including preparing homework and we encourage you to assemble innovative and effective lesson plans. 

Your classes will last just under an hour each, with school starting at 8:30am and ending at 2:30pm every day. As well as this you will have the opportunity to help with lots of extracurricular activities which will vary extensively depending on your personal skills and interests – whether it is helping to put on a play, organising a choir, or helping to coach a sports team. Whatever you decide, you are sure to gain huge satisfaction from interacting with and inspiring these underprivileged children, whilst enhancing your own skills and experience significantly.
