ABOUT EDUCATION INTERNSHIPS ABROAD
Education interns work in primary, secondary, post-secondary and private institutions. The role of an Education intern is to assist local educators by supporting and promoting learning in the classroom and the community. Past interns have taught or co-taught classes as well as assisted with curriculum development, implemented teaching strategies, conducted educational outreach activities in the community, and tutored students and their families. Many interns work in English language education, though interns with a background in a specific field and proficiency in the local language may also work in other subjects.
If you are an Education major and are required to complete a student teaching semester, our Education internship can be customized to meet your university’s requirements.

Experience counts in the classroom, and for aspiring teachers, an Education internship abroad is a great way to gain confidence and professional experience. Not only does it offer an incomparable professional experience, but it also provides a meaningful intercultural learning experience, which can help prepare teachers for the demands of the modern classroom.
Education internships are not just for Education majors. Undergraduate and graduate students, recent graduates, and mid-career professionals from other fields have all participated in Education internships abroad. The internship represents not only an opportunity for individuals to gain in-depth experience in the field of education, but also an interesting way to make a difference for people in a local community abroad.
