Roko 20 Academy - Volunteer Teacher

HCA Roko Academy.jpg

There is currently minimal Additional Learning Needs (ALN) provision at the school. For ALN pupils, it may be useful to provide one to one assistance, or assistance in very small groups, to help them strengthen their skills in certain basic areas.

Such pupils will be identified by their teachers. Teachers will indicate which areas these pupils need to strengthen.

On this basis, you will be invited to teach these pupils.

One objective is to assist them master certain basic areas (typically in reading, writing and computing); also, as such children often perceive themselves as “underscoring”, it is important to help them regain confidence in themselves.

Coordination with the teacher is very important to achieve good results for these children.

What we are looking for 

We are looking for a qualified teacher, special needs qualifications desirable.  In order to form a good relationship with teacher and pupil it is recommended (but not essential) that a volunteer commit to a minimum of three months volunteering.  It is essential you undertake some Safeguarding in a development context training which we can signpost you to.

We will provide

We will arrange accommodation in a two bedroom apartment in town with all facilities (could be shared with another volunteer).  Approximate cost for accommodation is £80 per month for rent (inclusive).  We can arrange breakfast and lunch at school at a cost of approx. £5 per week.  We request these costs to be met by the volunteer along with their return airfare, totalling around £850 for three months volunteering.  

We will provide pre-departure briefing and support ahead of your trip.
