Applications for the 2017 Teach India Programme are closed
What's it all about?
This year Teach India is offering you the opportunity to work in an Indian NGO school as part of a KPMG funded initiative. These schools are looking to add an international dimension to their teaching. Generation UK-India teaching assistantships give you the chance to get involved.
Starting in August, you can spend five months as a teaching assistant in an Indian NGO school. This year's placements will be based in some of India's most famous cities, including Mumbai, Noida, Gurgaon and Bengaluru.
India is home to an array of fascinating people, cultures and landscapes, but in recent years it’s been the country’s thriving economy that has been attracting attention. Supporting this growth is one of the largest education systems in the world with over 1.4 million schools and 230 million pupils.
Watch the video above to see what some previous participants have to say about their experience. You can also see India through the lens of this year’s participants by searching #GenUKIndia on Instagram.

What will I be doing?
Teaching Assistants support schools by teaching subjects across the curriculum to primary and secondary age groups. Most schools request support with teaching English but, depending on your skills, you could be developing your pupils' History knowledge or inpsiring budding scientists. Once you are selected to take part in the programme, we will match your skills to the participating schools' requests. You will also get involved with extra-curricular activities and international projects, bringing a slice of the UK to your pupils.
You will be given guidance and a proper induction to begin with, but then you will get a certain level of responsibility as the placement progresses.
