     APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN FOR OUR 2017 PROGRAMME

    The Lesotho Teacher Placement Programme offers you a fantastic opportunity to work in the mountainous Kingdom of Lesotho, in Southern Africa, and share your experiences with schools in Wales. For five and a half months you will teach in primary or secondary schools in Lesotho, and support some teacher training workshops.

    On your return you will spend two weeks in Wales sharing what you have learned with schools and teachers, and developing Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship resources.

    This programme provides a unique professional development opportunity and a great adventure!

    Since 2005 the Lesotho Teacher Placement programme has supported over 60 teachers to work in Lesotho and share that experience with Welsh schools. This has benefited the education of over 20,000 pupils and 1,000 teachers in Wales and Africa.

About Dolen Cymru Wales Lesotho Link

Dolen Cymru is an independent charity which fostered a unique country to country link between Wales and Lesotho.  Since 1985 life-changing partnerships have been created between communities, schools, health organisations and individuals.

Identified by the UN as a least developed country, Lesotho is a beautiful mountainous country known locally as the 'Kingdom in the Sky' or the 'Mountain Kingdom.' With nearly a quarter of its population living with HIV/AIDS and life expectancy down to 47, our partnership work can make a real difference to enable children and families achieve their potential.

 

"In health, education, environment and religion the partnership with Wales has been a real source of inspiration and hope to our people."

Kenneth Tsekoa, Lesotho Minister of Foreign Affairs
