Jan. 1, 2017

Global Education Practicum is a project developed by English for Kids Foundation, The Netherlands. The programme aims to offer eight volunteers the opportunity to gain practical teaching experience in the field of English as a Second Language.


Participants teach at Little Stars School (LSS) and AshaDiya center in Varanasi. They have the opportunity to experience both, group and individual teaching. At LSS participants work in pairs. They teach from Monday to Saturday. They work on their lesson plans and materials development, and they manage their respective classrooms. Twice a week participants give individual English lessons to girls in AshaDiya center. Participants also run English teacher training from Monday to Friday for teachers at Little Stars School. Each afternoon, students and teachers participate in compulsory and optional activities and/or workshops.


Participants work on their teaching portfolios: they are required to complete weekly evaluation of their work in the school and center; they write and add lesson plans from the previous week; they complete their teaching progress file; and eventually write a final report about their experience in the Indian school.


The project will take place in Varanasi, India during the period 1-21 January 2017.

The registration deadline is 21 October 2016.
