Education and Teaching Internships in Cape Town

South Africa as a nation faces many challenges; education is one that government is taking very seriously, with 20% of state expenditure going into education. Your education internship in Cape Town could take you in a number of different directions: from working as a teacher’s assistant or mentoring students, to researching educational policy or contributing to adult literacy projects. Our local network of schools and organizations involved in education is extensive, and by understanding your background and motivation we can match you to the ideal internship opportunity for you.
