This is a practical guide for volunteers and professionals who want to prepare themselves to teach in schools in Nepal. There are details about Nepal, what to expect when you arrive, issues you may face in the classroom, what you need to do, what you need to bring, and important information about health and safety.
The guide was compiled over many years and draws on first-hand experience in placing students, teacher and other volunteers in rural government schools. It has been written to appeal to anyone preparing to volunteer teach or who wants to know more about the country and its education system. The focus is on teaching in primary and lower secondary schools, but there are lessons for teaching in general, such as building knowledge and skills within communities.
The guide also helps teachers to consider what it takes to navigate a different educational, cultural and linguistic environment and how it can help shape beliefs and reinforce behaviours that are consistent with building personal resilience and leadership.
