VSO - Very Special Organisation

VSO is an international development charity that works through volunteers to fight poverty and transform lives in the world’s poorest countries. Globally, 72 million children don’t receive an education at all. VSO's vision is that all children have access to good quality education and to help achieve this, education volunteers share and pass on their skills and help to build capacity with teachers who have received no training and little support.

VSO volunteers make a lasting difference by sharing their skills and helping to improve the quality of teaching and learning, improve schools and make education more inclusive for all disadvantaged and excluded children.

They are looking for teachers with at least three years’ experience including: Primary, Secondary, Special Education, Education managers/leaders and English Language.

Roles are from one to two years to make an impact, and you’ll receive full training and support. VSO also offer a comprehensive package including a living allowance, return flights and visas, accommodation and full medical insurance. When you return home, VSO help and support you to resettle, and many of their returned volunteers stay involved with us long after their placement ends.
