Teach in Lesotho

Do you want to make a difference?

Ready for the challenge of a lifetime?

We are looking for..

Three inspirational teachers to join our team of local Primary School teachers and leaders to help improve education in rural Lesotho. 

What you will do…

You will share your skills in teaching Numeracy and Literacy and mentor your new colleagues over a 1 to 3 month placement in rural Lesotho (bespoke placements available). During this time you will gain unique insight into Basotho life, people and culture, which you will share with schools in Wales.

Why do we need you….

Your unique personal and teaching skills will help keep our Award Winning Sustainability work in Lesotho moving forward. You will build upon existing work done and create new partnerships in schools and in teacher training. Three Basotho teachers will have the opportunity to visit Wales upon your return where they will in turn have the experience of a lifetime.    You will help them become key change makers in their schools and community.

Who pays for this?


The Lesotho Teacher Placement Programme is a well-respected part of the British Council’s International Education Programme. This funding will pay for your trip to Lesotho, insurance cover and give you a monthly stipend to cover all of your daily expenses.
