Interns have broad scope on the Cape Town Youth Development and Education internship program to become involved with various activities. Core subjects can be taught at primary and secondary schools in disadvantaged communities, such as mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, English, music, dance, drama, choir, art and design, history and civics, geography, HIV/AIDS awareness and health, and business education. There’s also scope to incorporate sports and physical education, with recreational activities for students such as soccer, netball, basketball, and volleyball.
On this education internship, interns may also support community youth center initiatives that are aimed at providing families with the information and tools they need to avoid and remove themselves from common poverty traps. Such initiatives may also include teaching vocational skills to children and adolescents, such as carpentry, masonry, tailoring, farming, horticulture, and basic construction techniques that are appropriate to the region. Activities with a community focus may also include educational theater productions, facilitate group discussions with peer educators, provide counseling, and support income-generating activities.
|For all interns with an interest in developing skills as an educator, we also recommend an interactive Online TEFL Certification Course. The training offers tools and techniques over a 100-hour program. Upon completion, you’ll have earned experience in planning, designing, and adapting diverse language activities and materials. No previous teaching experience or training is required. You can sign up for the Online TEFL Certification Course anytime and you’ll pay the discounted Intern Abroad HQ rate.|
