Programmes

During term breaks we run overseas teaching training programmes in Uganda and India. Upon returning, we establish links between classrooms in order to highlight the diversity of cultures and teaching, in the hope that everyone can become a global citizen. Our programs are incredible, free (besides the flight & Visa) and designed by our in-house travel and education specialists . We’ve been managing these programs for almost 10 years and have made visible, sustainable improvements in both our UK schools and those in India and Uganda.

The Final day on our Overseas Teacher Training Trip

The last day of the programme was definitely an emotional one. Again I was with Group 3 (Cailtin, Baz, Angela) at Janta, Children Happy and Vivek Modern. At that moment in India it was festival season which means they have a lot of random holidays which they seem to have forgotten to mention to us!…

Day 6 on our Overseas Teacher Training Trip

Today was…interesting. I was with Nicola and Katelyn in group 2 (where all the drama happens) and our day started off with a journey of over 2 hours to our first school, a trip which usually only takes 30 minutes. Our driver didn’t speak a word of English, nor could he read it and we…

Day 5 on our Overseas Teacher Training Trip

Well today was a bit of an eventful day…  It wasn’t until towards the end of the day that the chaos began, I was watching the afternoon seminar on the main activities when I saw Katelyn come downstairs and tap Nicola on the shoulder. After that there was a lot of movement, running up and…

Day 4 on our Overseas Teacher Training Trip

So I’m pretty sure I jinxed myself yesterday by saying maybe tomorrow will be less eventful as I’ve spent the day in my hotel room. This morning I woke up feeling a little queezy and by the time I got down to breakfast I had to run back upstairs again to be sick.  Stacey brought…

Day 3 on our Overseas Teacher Training Trip

So after my slight hiccup as trip photographer (deleting all the photos from the first day) I am back on track and made up for the lack of those photos by taking an extortionate amount!  My day started at 6:10 when my alarm went off after only a few hours of sleep due to lovely…

Day 2 on our Overseas Teacher Training Trip

So this morning I woke up and realised I had lost all my photos from the day before…there’s not really any way I can explain so I’m guessing I managed to delete them somehow. Great. I haven’t told Stacey, the trip leader yet…I should probably do that but I am slightly putting it off. We…

Day 1 on our Overseas Teacher Training Trip

We started off our journey in a very slight panic with Beckie, one of the teachers getting stuck on the M25 for 5 hours!! She made it to the airport with 45 minutes until we left and luckily they were willing to whisk her through security! So the 10 of us set off and enjoyed…
