'Year'?

Hello, I've seen some amazing gap year opportunities on your website, and I was wondering if 'gap year' meant specifically a 'year' or whether or not I could do more than one of these opportunities over a number of years? (as you don't necessarily need to go to university, and teaching in schools over the world might be a good way to get experience before going into Montessori teaching). Thank-you.

    Hi Jayde

    Direct experience of informal teaching is a great way to test your own commitment and suitability to formal teaching roles.

    You're correct in assuming that gap year programmes do not last for a year. They are expensive so multiple trips would eat into your finances!

    If you do go for one, my advice would be to do plenty of research and choose carefully.
