Think global, act local

23rd February 2001 at 00:00
Could you be a global teacher? The charity Link Africa wants 60 teachers to spend five weeks supporting school development in Ghana, Uganda and South Africa, and then to inspire schools in Britain to learn more about the rest of the world.

You might work with college lecturers or teacher trainers; you might support planning, training and teaching in a village school. You would live with a local family.

Most placements will begin in late July, but 10 in Ghan will start in September, with Link paying for supply cover.

There are no costs to applicants. You must be a qualified teacher or head, with at least three years experience including training and supporting other teachers. Applications must be in by March 9.

For an application pack contact: Global Teacher Millennium Awards Link Community Development, Orwell House, Cowley Road, Cambridge CB4 OPP. Tel: 01223 506665. email:
