Teaching in Kenya!
African Adventures provide humanitarian, financial and developmental support to 21 educational projects, helping to improve the lives of 20,000 young people through the provision of schooling and food. They firmly believe that volunteering is a two-way street which greatly benefits not only the children in Africa but also the volunteers who travel with them.
It will personally benefit my professional development as a trainee teacher as I hope to learn how to teach without the reliance on modern technology. I also hope to complete my third university assignment in comparing Kenyan education with that in the UK in four key areas:
- Ambition and aspiration in secondary-aged pupils
- EAL: teaching and learning in a language other than the home language
- The role of the school within the community
- Working with and without digital technologies
