Teaching Abroad


The Teaching Assistant Program in France offers you the opportunity to work in France for 7 to 9 months teaching English to French students of all ages. This teaching program sponsored by the French Government offers 1,600 teaching assistant positions in French primary and secondary schools and in the French teaching colleges ("IUFM") in all regions of France and the DOM-TOMs (overseas departments). The goal of the program is to strengthen English-language instruction in the French educational system through the establishment of a native speaker presence. Several Baylor students have participated in this program throughout the years.

Volunteers are placed in schools and host communitities that specifically request WorldTeach volunteers and would otherwise be unable to afford or locate qualified teachers. Volunteers receive training, language preparation, and field support empowering them to make an impact that will last long after they leave.
