Teaching English Volunteering Program in Nepal

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Volunteer Society Nepal (VSN)

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

As a Teaching volunteer in Nepal, you will give your students better opportunities in life. Train, teach or assist with English, Maths, Science, sports, dance, music or ICT to students from kindergarten to Secondary level.

As a volunteer Teacher , you may also help teachers and children to improve in these subjects. Either by training the teachers, assisting in classes or you teaching yourself. Volunteers may also get involved in extra lessons for struggling children or lead recreational activities in the schools.

The situation of schools in Nepal

The schools throughout Nepal are in desperate need of extra help with their English, Maths, Science, Sports, Music, Dance and ICT classes. English has increasingly become the language of business and opportunity. Fluency in English creates more opportunities for children when they leave school. Math is always something that teachers find complicated to teach and many teachers do not have any experience in ICT.

What does a volunteer do?

Teaching Volunteers either train, teach or assist in teaching at primary or secondary schools in Kathmandu, Pokhara or in small villages in Solukhumbu the mountains. Volunteers spend up to 6 hours a day at the school. Depending on your experience you may:

Train: Observe the teachers and give feedback

Teacher Training Volunteering Nepal: In the beginning, you will work closely with the Principal of the school. You will establish where there is most need for teacher training and support. From here you can use your own initiative to build a framework for providing teacher training. You will spend up to 6 hours a day at the school and conducting your work in an office. Overall, you will be responsible for training teachers, sitting in with lessons and conducting showcase lessons in your preferred subject. If you have 2 weeks or more to spend at the school then you can help plan the subject curriculum for the term or year. We like to encourage you to bring new and innovative teaching methods to the classrooms. They help the school determine what resources are needed and how to get hold of them.

Teach: Give classes on your own

As a volunteer teacher in Nepal, you look at where the need is most in terms of teaching and step in where is needed. Sometimes there are not enough teachers and you will teach a class yourself. It is also possible that the teacher is there and you will teach the class together. The teacher can learn from your teaching methodologies by observing and joining the teaching.

Assist: Be a teacher’s assistant

Teaching Volunteering Nepal: As an assistant, you will work alongside a local teacher to help with all the subjects. We encourage you to think of creative ways to help teach the children, for example, to bring in new teaching resources. The age of the children varies from 4 to 16 years. You can decide which age group you like to assist.
