Trip overview

Our Teach in Peru trip combines both passions of teaching and travel into one. You’ll gain an internationally-recognised accreditation and be presented with the unique opportunity to have your own classroom of students as you embark on an unforgettable adventure to teach English abroad. Indulge in the exquisite ruins, hike the beloved colourful mountains and feast in a galore of Peruvian eats in one of South America’s most adored countries.

We offer the complete package for those wanting to teach English overseas and, best of all, we have partnered with exclusive local teaching organisations who can offer you an optional paid teaching placement upon completion of your TEFL course.

Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.

Trip details

Our Teach in Peru trip is designed to get you travelling, living and teaching English overseas as smoothly as possible. We’re here to help you from the very beginning, offering step-by-step guidance as you embark on a path to work and travel as an English teacher abroad. We provide an internationally-recognised TEFL course, arrange local cultural experiences and provide you with the optional opportunity to work as a paid English teacher included upon completion of your course. 

Arrive in Peru with the reassurance that you will be one step ahead of every other traveller or teacher in search of international experience in South America. Once you’ve completed your TEFL in Arequipa, you’re free to take it with you to many countries in the world and embark on exciting teaching projects abroad. Or you can choose to stay for longer in Peru and earn a local income with an optional teaching placement in various language schools around the country. We’ll plan and organise all the surrounding logistics, our 24/7 emergency support team is always on standby, and our in-country partner will guide you throughout the entire journey and answer any questions that may arise.

Spend your time teaching in Peru, immersing yourself in the culture and exploring the breathtaking landscapes and leave the logistical stuff to us. We’re here to save you time, money, stress and even the risk of returning home early! Embrace a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel, live and teach in Peru and start making magic happen in the classroom of your dreams. 


To qualify for this trip, you must have your high school certificate or diploma and you'll also be required to bring a laptop with you to aid your classroom duties as a teacher.

What extra costs will I have? 

Flights, travel insurance, visa, criminal background check, souvenirs & spending money.

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that you have the freedom to create your own adventure. But, for a rough idea, this is how most travellers spend their first few days: 

Week 1-4

Once you’ve touched down at Alfredo Rodriguez Ballon International Airport, your driver will take you to your course accommodation in Arequipa.

You’ll be introduced to your TEFL classmates and trainers and prepare to begin your 4 weeks of training before your optional teaching contract starts! 

Most people are presented with a local teaching contract before they’ve even finished the TEFL course. These typically begin at the start of the following month. In the unlikely chance you haven't received your placement, our local partner won’t stop until you’ve got one.

Trip location

Arrive in Arequipa so that you can start your in-country TEFL course. After that, you could find yourself teaching in one of the placements our in-country teaching partners have dotted all over Peru.

I spoke with Nicole from the Australian office. It took me a few days to decide what I wanted to do but Nicole helped with offering advice on where to go. I would recommend going through the company if you want more information.
