Your placement takes place for four weeks in the Scottish summer holidays.
To ensure maximum impact and the provision of support where it is most needed, your cohort will be split between a number of communities, and, unless you have specifically requested to live alone, you will be sharing accommodation with one, two or three other participants. The Wood Foundation works with our in-country partners to carefully assign placements, balancing local requirements with the skills and experience of GLP participants.
You will be fully immersed in the school system, working alongside staff to develop opportunities and teaching strategies for classes. You will also develop professional learning for our in-country’s local teacher trainers which will then be cascaded throughout the countries.
The placement is split between Uganda and Rwanda. You will be living and working for three weeks in Ugandan communities before spending a week delivering professional learning to teacher trainers in Rwanda.
