Education and Teaching Project in Sri Lanka, Kandy
Your project is to work as an assistant teacher at one of our many Kindergarten schools. This program helps children in the villages improve their English language skills. You will primarily be teaching English. You may be called upon to help teach drama, music and foreign languages. You would also assist other teachers and staff and may have to create teaching plans, etc. All the institutions are well managed and are supervised by officers from government and private institutions. All the institutions are over 5 years old. They all share the common values and aim to create a better future for the kids. Some of them provide free education too.
Special Needs School
Spend your time at the Special Needs School where you will be able to work with students with different health conditions. Your affection, attention and care would help these children to have confidence and skills they deserve to have. You will support the teachers and staff in looking after the children and teaching and involving the children in various other activities. You will be training them to live a regular life.
Teaching English to Adults
Teaching English to adults program is aimed at improving the skills and knowledge of english of adults. The aim of this program is to enhance their confidence and knowledge of English. Proficiency in English is one of the essential requirements in acquiring a suitable employment in Sri Lanka. Yet the formal school education has not been successful to produce individuals who are competent in using English. Therefore, we strive to teach individuals who are in need of assistance learn English.
In Sri Lanka, obtaining English education is quite expensive and most of the children in villages are not able to attend for private tuition classes to improve their English knowledge. Therefore, under this project, you will be teaching English for children in villages after their school hours. The classes will take place either at a community center or at a home of a parent who would like to provide space to conduct the classes. Since this project will be carried out only for 2 to 3 hours in the afternoon, it is suggested that you combine this with another project, which takes place in the morning.
