How to find out about teaching opportunities once you are a registered tutor?

Registered tutors receive Tutor Opportunities Bulletins, which give details of forthcoming programmes. Since many trips are repeat visits in which personal relationships are key, vacancies on these can be limited. 

We have a relatively small administrative team so please let do us know if you have any professional contacts, particular interests or a calling, or you spot something you think you could be part of in our newsletters or prayer calendar.

There are also a number other opportunities to take an active role in PRIME without the need to travel. Find out more about these opportunities >
