Street Child is a UK charity, established in 2008, that aims to create educational opportunity for some of the most vulnerable children in West Africa.


Teacher Training

Teacher Training Scheme

Our unique scheme for UK teachers offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Sierra Leone and take part in our teacher training projects over the Easter and Summer holidays.  We are looking for teachers of all levels, from NQT to senior management, to get involved.

With this rewarding scheme, you will help change the lives of thousands of street children, gain teaching and management skills for your CV and see one of the most beautiful countries in the world. 

What will I do?

Typical trips are 1-2 weeks, during which you will work with other UK teachers to run workshops in general basic teaching practice for Sierra Leonean primary or secondary teachers.

You can also take part in observing and mentoring teachers working directly on the streets with children and will have the chance to meet and build relationships with other teachers from across the UK.

Visit one of our amazing rural projects in some of the remotest parts of the world and enjoy the sights of beautiful Sierra Leone on this once in a lifetime trip.

 And when you get home…

Street Child encourages teachers to give feedback in a school assembly about your experiences.

We’ll also help you start a sustainable project with the schools in Sierra Leone and your school.

How much does it cost?

The package from the UK costs £1000, and there are limited places. This includes flights, visas, accommodation, food, a trip to our rural work and a chance to meet other UK teachers going out before you leave.
