SeeBeyondBorders: Australian teachers in Cambodia


SeeBeyondBorders is an Australian charitable foundation providing children in Cambodia with access to quality teaching and learning at school. It currently supports 11,000 Cambodian children in 50 primary schools and has trained 275 teachers, with 54 receiving additional training as mentors. Through the medium of primary mathematics Australian teachers give their Cambodian counterparts tools for teaching that are then easily integrated into the Cambodian classrooms. Preparatory workshops are recognised by the NSW Institute of Teachers as Institute Registered professional development, and the Institute also recognises the volunteers' facilitation of the workshops in Cambodia. Teachers outside NSW are welcome to apply and training for groups can be provided across Australia.
