“Taking part in the VolunTeach Peru teaching assistant programme has been a fantastic experience that I would recommend to everyone! I spent a month teaching children aged five to 16 in a school in Lima. I loved organizing different activities for the pupils and helping them learn an authentic English. Staying with a host family was also invaluable as I had the opportunity to improve my Spanish”.
Jonathan Hardman, University of Liverpool
“VTP was an enlightening, educational and overall extremely beneficial experience- both from a life experience perspective and educationally. he teaching side was an interesting idea for me. As someone who is considering teaching as profession, it was an ideal experience. I cannot recommend the program highly enough, a fantastic and life-changing opportunity and I would do almost anything to go back”.
Poppy Holt, St. Andrews University
“VTP is brilliant. It really helps the participating schools – students and teachers alike – to learn more about British culture which is worlds apart from Peru. The school that I was put into was in Huaraz up in the mountains. It was the most beautiful place I had ever seen”.
William Carter, Oxford University
“I was drawn to VTP because it had fantastic student reviews. Living with a family was guaranteed to improve my Spanish – now partially Peruvian flavoured – and I was attracted to the sustainability and genuine cultural exchange aspect of the project. I really got the chance to learn about Peru first hand. Reassured by the lovely VTP team I felt confident setting off to Peru”.
