International Teaching Placements Programme


In addition to Riplington & Associates’ International Job Shadowing  Scheme (IJSS) in schools, our international teaching placements    contribute to teacher development and international co-operation. The ITPP provides an opportunity  for overseas qualified  (and retired) teachers to experience  international education on a paid structured teaching placement for three to six months.  Further,  overseas student teachers are not exempt as they can also participate in the ITPP as tutors / learning mentors to Nigerian students who need additional support.
