1. Consider your Availability
LRTT Fellowships begin in January, June, July and August. In most cases, teachers from Australia and Zealand are available in January, teachers from the USA are available in June and July and teachers from the UK and EU are available in August. When are you available to make a difference?
2. Choose a Location
With Fellowships in 11 different countries over 3 continents, the next step is to choose where you want to go. Would you like to train head teachers in north Uganda or are you more excited about working with pre-kindergarten teachers in urban schools in India? Likewise, are you a beach or city person? An animal lover or a culture vulture (would you rather Gorilla watch in Uganda, or take in the Indian culture in Bangalore?)?! Whatever you choose, you’ll have the time of your life. Where will LRTT take you?
3. Submit an Application
So, you know when and where, now it’s time to fill out our online form. Consider your motivations, strengths and personal development aims and you’ll be in good shape to provide a strong application. You can save the form at any point and come back to it, but we’ve tried to make it as easy and quick as possible to complete. We look for Fellows with resilience, a growth mindset and a passion for education. What makes you a suitable candidate to join a Fellowship team?
4. Phone Interview
Once your application has been submitted our team will be in touch within 48 hours. If you are successful at this stage, you will be invited to interview with a Team Leader. What can you expect from the interview? Your LRTT Interview is a chance to:
- Find out more about what your summer with LRTT will look like,
- Ask any question you have about the Fellowship experience,
- Talk more about your teaching experience & motivations for applying.
Our team is very friendly, so no need to be nervous. Spaces do fill up quickly, so we encourage you to book your interview as soon as you can.
5. Confirm your Place
Following your phone interview, if you’re offered a place on the team, we ask for confirmation, by way of a 20% deposit, within 7 days of your offer. The selection process is highly competitive and with places limited on any given Fellowship, places can fill up fast, so we encourage you to confirm your place as soon as you can.
So there we are, the 5 simple steps to submitting an application to join an LRTT Fellowship! To find out more about Fellowship dates and availability for next summer, go to: www.lrtt.org/fellowships
