The children have a huge wealth of creativity, however have never had an art or design lesson before in their lives. This placement is open to either an art or design teacher who wants to develop their own teaching styles and take control of the department. With limited resources this is a big challenge, however this programme will give you huge amounts of experience and can be tailored to suit individual teachers. There is also the opportunity to teach english with this placement, which would strengthen your application.
As part of the Chalkboard Team you will also need to help out with the day-to-day runnings of the orphanage, such as help serving food, playing games with the children after school and bed time.
