Teaching and education roles


VSO volunteers support education programmes in 17 developing countries to ensure that every child has access to a quality education.

Education volunteers needed for a variety of programmes

Education volunteers help on a range of programmes that improve education practices and processes. The work undertaken by education volunteers continues long after the volunteer has left, improving the learning of thousands of children.

As we work to improve education at all levels, we need volunteers from a range of education backgrounds. We need teachers with experience of all levels and specialisms as well as those with professional backgrounds in education management and policy. 

If this sounds like you, please join us. Together we will create deep-seated change to educational practices and systems.
