Teachers

Supporting teachers at both primary and secondary level

We work closely with Teach for Cambodia Fellows along with the teachers in their schools. Teaches have on average four years of experience and teach at both primary/elementary and secondary/high school level.

Schools

Teach For Cambodia’s partner schools

As a Fellow, you will be working with teachers in secondary schools in Phnom Penh, where Teach for Cambodia fellows are placed. Despite economic development across Phnom Penh, schools still lack basic resources.

Context

Just 10% of Cambodian students complete high school

Just 1 in 10 children who start school in Cambodia today finish high school. Socio-economic factors, limited teacher supply, and a lack of teacher training continue to limit access to quality education.

Partner

Teach For Cambodia

Our local partner, Teach For Cambodia exists to solve the problem of educational inequity in Cambodia. By training emerging leaders as teachers and placing them in high-need schools they are building a movement to develop lifelong education advocates committed to tackling educational inequity.

Region

Phnom Penh and the surrounding districts

From rice fields and dense forests to mountainous peaks and golden beaches, Cambodia is a collision of natural beauty and heritage. The nation's recovery from the tragedy in the era of the Khmer Rouge is testament to its people. Teachers we work with are infectiously optimistic, tenacious and welcoming.

All meals are included. There will be continental breakfast in the hostel restaurant, packed local-style lunches, and the opportunity to eat out in local restaurants.

What's nearby to see & do?

Our centrally located hostel is near to a number of local sites which you are free to explore in the evenings and weekends. From the many markets of the city, walking along the riverside, dining at the local restaurants, or socializing at the hostel, there is lots to do.
