Program Overview

Program Description:
The Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia is currently recruiting native English speakers to teach English in Georgian public schools! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will build your CV and provide you with new, exciting experiences! Do you wish to teach English as a second language and travel to a foreign country? If your answer is yes then you will be happy to join our program “Teach and Learn with Georgia” and teach English in Georgian public schools!

Volunteer-teachers are expected to be punctual, flexible and maintain a positive attitude. Although this is a volunteer-teacher program it must be taken seriously and treated like a job. It is up to the volunteer-teacher to be responsible and meet the standards and rules set forth by the program and your school. Academic Roles: At school, volunteer-teachers co-teach with up to three Local English Teachers for a maximum of 30 hours per week, which includes time spent planning lessons. The schedule will be determined by the school principal. There is only one volunteer-teacher per school. Volunteers create interactive activities with a specific focus on listening and speaking skills. Many volunteer-teachers organize extracurricular activities based on their personal interests and the needs of the schools.

Teach and Learn with Georgia (TLG), a progressive education movement initiated by the Georgian government, recruits native English speakers to co-teach English alongside local English teachers in public schools throughout the country of Georgia. TLG aims to improve Georgia’s nationwide English language proficiency in an effort towards further globalization.
Setting Description:
Non Academic Roles: At home, volunteer-teachers are expected to provide their host families with three hours of English lessons each week. Volunteer-teachers participate in cultural exchange activities with their host families and integrate with the local communities.
Cost:
No costs. The candidates get paid + receive benefits such as a free round trip ticket to and from Georgia, a free insurance, an accommodation support, etc.
