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!
