SKIP's English teaching programme provides lessons not only to the 300 children enrolled in our programme but also to some 700 other children who attend public schools in the local area. Teaching in the public schools enables us to not only provide a head start to children who will study English in Secondary school as a required subject, but also to provide solid support for SKIP within the local community.
Thanks to a partnership with the American Embassy, we have also been able to provide scholarships to learn English for our most motivated children and teenagers at the El Cultural Language Institute a private and prestigious language school located in the centre of Trujillo.
The English teaching programme aligns with the overall SKIP philosophy, and shares the common objectives of promoting multiculturalism and also developing a global dimension within the children’s education. This is facilitated by our English teachers - a dedicated team of international volunteers, many of whom are native English speakers.
Further to this, our English programme also aims to give the children and teenagers of El Porvenir the ability to communicate in another language, which not only opens doors to other cultures but can also increase job opportunities in many careers where understanding a foreign language is a real asset.
Our English teaching programme is supervised by an experienced and qualified EFL teacher so as a volunteer you will receive support and skills training in lesson planning and teaching techniques:
