Teaching English - Professional Placement in India

Video and Photos


This is not your average Teaching English volunteer experience. You will be challenging yourself as teacher, a volunteer and an individual. Working with children from disadvantaged backgrounds who are living on the streets, you will have the challenging, yet rewarding task to support them to catch up to the education standards for their age group.

Our partner organisation provides a ‘Bridge School’ to ensure that homeless street children can also have access to an education. As an English teacher, you will contribute to their development by teaching a marketable skill set.

As a teacher you have the responsibility to facilitate the children’s learning according to milestones, and connect with parents, visiting them once a month to report on the learning achievements of their children.

You will experience exceptional personal and professional growth from this fully immersive experience. By the end of this placement, you will have developed yourself as a teacher and an individual.

  • Full immersion living at a local school
  • Cross-cultural working environment and integration into local team
  • Extensive opportunities for personal and professional development
  • Variety of responsibilities and tasks, developing and expanding current and new skills
  • Long-lasting impact on organisation and the children themselves

Incredible experience

I have just completed a similar three month teaching placement with Skilled Impact, working in an underprivileged Social Welfare school outside of Hyderabad. I chose the organisation for their emphasis on volunteerism and not 'voluntourism' and the nature of the placement which seemed to give me a higher level of challenge and responsibility than other volunteer organisations. The teaching placement was an immersive experience that gave me the opportunity to teach extra-curricular English where there was a strong need. Skilled Impact differs from other organisations here that are volunteer-oriented, focusing on profit or the 'experience' of the volunteer rather than the work's recipients. They are a professional and supportive organisation and Anna, the Managing Director, has been great to work with throughout.
Now, having just completed the three month placement I have decided to stay on with the organisation to do their Social Entrepreneurship Internship!
