Volunteers must have a good level of English language, in order to teach the subject, and a basic level if teaching another subject. Thai language skills should be basic, and volunteers should possess the desire to learn alongside students and teachers.


If teaching a subject such as Art and Music, volunteers must have relevant qualifications in this subject. Please inform Move Lanna of your qualification and level, and we will consult with the school.


Volunteers should be creative, and work as part of a team. You must be able and willing to make a timetable and short curriculum for your teaching. Volunteers must dress politely and act politely around all members of staff.

It is important that volunteers have a level of independence as they will need to look after themselves in the evenings. This is not to say you will be alone, as most of the teachers and students live around the village.
