GTI in partnership with Teach With Africa is seeking highly qualified and motivated teachers and educators to participate in our annual Instructional Fellowship Programme in South Africa from 6 July to 3 August 2018 (provisional dates). The deadline for applications is 16 February 2018.
We typically recruit certified high school and upper middle school teachers with four years or more of classroom experience teaching high school math, science, English or computer science, though from time to time take outstanding teachers in other subjects.
The programme aims to facilitate an authentic platform for fellows and their South African hosts to learn from one another, improve their instructional practices, and shift the international engagement paradigm from one of giving and taking to co-creation and sharing. In addition to professional experience and expertise, we seek to recruit Fellows who are excited by the potential of the programme to be a truly transformative experience, personally and professionally.
What costs are covered by the Fellowship?
- Internal transport in South Africa (excluding private travel on the weekends and public holidays)
- Accommodation and meals at the 3-day orientation workshop at the GTI Head Office
- Accommodation and meals at GTI’s annual 5-day education summit.
- Placement at a host school for approximately 3 weeks. Meals and accommodation are at your own expense during this period.
What costs do I (or my local sponsor) need to need cover?
- Airfare to and from South Africa
- Visa and travel insurance
- Meal and accommodation costs while at the host school. Accommodation typically runs at around US$40-50 per day, and food costs around US$10-15 per day.
