Internship: English language teaching assistant or TEFL educator (Kazakhstan)

The Center for International Programs, also known as Bolashak international scholarship administrator, has recently launched a new program to attract foreign volunteers into Kazakhstani universities. It supports implementation of the government program to enhance trilingual capacity of our education system and ultimately aims to back a state policy in boosting a share of Kazakhstani population speaking English.

Volunteers will be working as English language teaching assistants or TEFL educators from 1 up to 6 months in any local university or college. The university will be taking care of their accommodation and meal for the entire duration of the program (some host institutions may cover roundtrip flight tickets).

This program provides students pursuing a degree in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies with an opportunity to discover Central Asia whilst teaching English at local universities.
