The teaching staff are often overworked and therefore welcome any help that can be given. Working as a teacher's assistant in the school or taking on other projects, provides the staff with invaluable support and often frees-up their time to give the children the one-to-one attention they need.
Your ability to speak English will mean that you can help with English lessons which can provide the children with a valuable skill and added confidence. You will also require a lot of creativity during your placement, as lessons can be unpredictable and the needs of each child are unique.
You should also be prepared to join in with games and other fun exercises, often geared towards giving the children the chance to express themselves independently. It is also likely that you will be able to get involved with manual work, such as repairing and painting the classrooms and school buildings.
Please be advised that the daily transportation costs to and from your program are not included and must therefore be paid by yourself throughout the course of your stay. Those costs may range from 2 - 8 Euros per day.
