Love teaching and being with children?

Then experiencing Malawi as a teacher aide is something you should really enjoy!

We have strong relationships with various schools around the area in need of teaching support. These schools have an established curriculum and you will be asked to assist the teaching staff to convey the same curriculum to larger classes.

You may find yourself working in either an orphanage, public, primary or secondary school around the Mangochi area depending on the local’s needs. You will be working together with teachers and assisting them while they manage either English, Mathematics or Science classes    

Thanks to a community holiday program we organize, this program can be booked during Malawi’s school holidays!

Please note this trip may require you to purchase a cultural experience week with it. Click Here to find the relevant cultural experience week based on the country where this trip operates in.

Your first day eases you into the program and will be more introductory. You will be shown around the school facilities and take part in the classroom environment until the teachers understand your abilities and can then assign an appropriate role for you.

From then on you will be teaching for roughly five hours with a lunch break in between. After your teaching shift, you will have time to prepare the lesson for the next day. A typical day could look like...

  • Breakfast at the Center
  • Head out to the teaching placement and join a teachers meeting
  • Lunch with the children or teaching staff
  • Assist in Teaching a class
  • Prepare lessons or activities for the following day
  • Back to the center for dinner with other participants who’ve also been out in various placements.

This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
