Teach Abroad

Want to make a difference and teach abroad? Teaching kids in other countries is an amazing opportunity! Knowing you are having an impact on the education of children and communities around the world is one of the most rewarding ways to spend a gap year. You can earn money as you teach with a paid teaching position in countries such as Thailand, or become a teaching volunteer abroad and share your skills and experience in a voluntary role in countries such as Bali, India, South Africa, Fiji or Costa Rica.

Paid teaching is one of the most popular gap year options, and it's not hard to see why! With the opportunity to earn money, get teaching experience for your CV and explore the world, paid teaching is top of many travellers' to-do lists. Teaching as a volunteer is equally as rewarding, as you help with kids' education abroad and make a difference. Become a trusted teacher and discover the world at the same time!

Paid teaching programmes

Our most popular paid teaching programme is in Thailand, available to graduate applicants, who can earn around USD1000 a month as a paid teacher. We also offer paid teaching programmes in China, South Korea and Myanmar (Burma).

Get a TEFL qualification

A TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualification is essential if you want to get a paid teaching job abroad, and all of our paid work programmes include a 120-hour TEFL course as part of the package. Learn new teaching skills, gain that all-important TEFL qualification and start your teaching experience abroad!

Become a gap school assistant in Australia, teach kids in Tanzania, teach kids in communities in Cape Town, teach kids in Fiji, become a teacher in Bali, volunteer in a school in India, teach English in South America or coach sports in Africa, among other volunteer teaching opportunities.
