VATSS is proud to be an inclusive secondary school offering a second chance to over 500 day and boarding students unable to attend other schools.  The quality of English language education in Papua New Guinea has been in decline for some years, resulting in a new competency test for new teachers being introduced.  VATSS need a motivated volunteer to help improve its English language teaching and learning programme and support teachers to improve student's proficiency in the English language.

You will also mentor teaching staff to instruct and support trainee teachers to improve in their coursework. To ensure the lasting success of your assignment you will also work with the diverse staff and students to develop and implement a continuous improvement process.

Your ability to relate well to people from all walks of life, coupled with your excellent communications skills, patience and understanding will help you succeed in this role.

We are looking for a volunteer with:

  • Relevant qualification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL)
  • At least two years' experience teaching English to speakers of other languages
  • Ability to provide mentoring and coaching support to colleagues
  • Ability to review, recommend and monitor improvements to teaching processes and practices
