Teachers

Teachers are a driving force behind SeebeyondBorders' mission to provide children in Cambodia with access to quality teaching and learning at school.

SeeBeyondBorders is currently running one Teach the Teacher program in Cambodia each year during the Australian school holidays in January, and we are seeking volunteer primary school teachers to take part in these programs.

Join our team of teachers and assist in running primary level Maths workshops in Cambodia for teachers from rural village schools. In these teacher workshops, our volunteer teachers transfer their knowledge and skills to Cambodian teachers. These workshops play a vital role in building Cambodian teachers’ skills and improving learning outcomes for children.

Volunteer teachers also have the opportunity to participate in hands-on projects, such as a school’s art, sport or health programs as part of our Getting to School program. Sightseeing and cultural experiences are part of the program, including visits to the temples of Angkor Wat.

Who Can Apply?

  • Experienced primary teachers, with a minimum of 3 years experience.
  • Secondary teachers are welcome to join the accompanying projects team, using their teaching skills to help deliver sport and art programs at schools in SeeBeyondBorders programs.
  • We also welcome your friends or family to come along, as well as individuals without teaching experience. Please note that those without the required level of teaching experience will not take part in the teaching workshop, but in the hands-on projects at the schools instead.
  • Please get in touch if you are interested in applying and we will send you more information.

Program Costs and Fundraising

There is a program fee to cover all in-country costs such as accommodation, transport, food and tourist activities. This fee will vary depending on the length of the trip. In addition, a project donation is requested to cover the costs of running the programs that you will be involved with during your time as a volunteer in Cambodia.  We would be delighted to support individuals who wish to fundraise for the donation.

We will let you know the amount required for the program fee and project donation in the initial planning stages for your visit.
