The Teacher Educator will play a crucial role in VSO’s teacher education project in Myanmar. Based at an Education College, you will support teacher education reforms in Myanmar and build the capacity of local Teacher Educators (TEs) to deliver the new 4-year pre-service degree course.

Allowance As a VSO volunteer, you will be sharing your skills with local communities on a full-time basis.
VSO will cover your travel, vaccinations, accommodation, and medical insurance costs, along with a local living allowance which will be paid in local currency. This allowance meets reasonable living expenses in country, but will not be enough to send money home. You will also receive some financial support to contribute to your on-going expenses at home.
VSO works with some of the poorest communities in the world which means accommodation varies and will be basic.
