You will be settled in and orientated during the first few days of this trip. However, we do offer a more comprehensive cultural immersion week which many people do as it’s a great way of meeting others, learning local customs and seeing a few sights. If you like the sound of this, then search our ‘Related trips‘ and add it on for your first week.
Teaching Project in Madagascar, Nosy Be
Most people in Madagascar can’t afford to travel, and in villages like Tsararano Ambony, there is little chance of contact with the outside world. You, as a foreign teacher, enable the students to form a relationship with someone from a different background and culture. On the other hand, the local teachers can also learn new and up to date teaching methods and techniques from you. You will mainly assist the regular school teachers in the school and therefore even without a formal teaching background, you can participate in this project.
You will teach children from different age groups with different learning capacities. You are free to use your own teaching materials and methods in teaching. You can use the course-book as a reference or educate children through conversation with spoken English. During your time here you can teach them different subjects such as mathematics, history, science, geography, computer, technologies, music, arts and crafts, different educational games, personal development, environment awareness, general health and safety and so on. Higher education in Madagascar is given in French and Malagasy. It’s also vitally important that children learn English as well because Nosy Be is also one of the most famous tourist destinations in Madagascar.
CRB/DBS (Criminal Records Bureau) Check
It is required that participants complete a CRB/DBS (Criminal Records Bureau) check in order to take part in this project. We can provide this service for you at an additional cost because some people may already have one that is valid (please get in touch for more details).
