Teachers wanted today

Stand by Me is involved with two schools in the Chin State, Burma; Lois School is catering for more than 500 children and Grace Children’s Education Centre around 350 children. The students at both schools range in age from 4 – 17.

The two schools are seeking to move towards more child-centred teaching approaches and are seeking training in pre-school education, foundation, key stage 1 key stage 2 and Special Education Needs. There is a particular demand for teachers of Mathematics and Phonics, however teachers of English, Science, Geography, History and RE at secondary level would also be appreciated to assist with the development of the material to be taught, as well as appropriate subject based teaching skills training.

The next training visit will take place in the autumn (Approximately 24th October – 8th November) when the weather is very pleasant and would suit those teachers who have retired, are on a career break or are prepared to take leave of absence alongside the October half term break..

Total costs (flights, accommodation, food and visas but excluding insurance) would be in the range of £1250 – £1500, depending on the costs of flights and internal transport arrangements.

If you feel able to assist these teachers, or want further information, please contact
either of our offices (01708 442271 or 028 9335 0009) or email Robert – [email protected]
