By BBN Staff: Belizean teachers have an opportunity to teach in the United States through Participate Learning, a teacher exchange program which recruits teachers from Latin America to teach in the US for a period of three to five years.
The program officially began taking applications this week, offering opportunities for teaching primary school as well as Math and Science at the high school level in three states, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. All positions are full-time and salaried, with competitive health benefits and professional development opportunities.
“As an additional benefit, in case the teacher recruited has a family, it is possible for the members to travel to the United States with all migratory arrangements accomplish and supported by the program to obtain the visa,” the coordinators of the program said in a statement.
Teachers must have at least 2 years of full-time teaching experience, be fluent in English and have a driver’s license to qualify. Applicants also have to agree to complete a minimum of two years on the program.
The coordinators noted that 45 Belizean teachers have enrolled in the program thus far. Interested teachers can apply at http://go.participatelearning.com/bz201905.
