Internship at the GSIS

The German Swiss International School is a “German School Abroad”, which is recognised by the Ministry of Education. Apart from the nursery, the school comprises the kindergarten, primary, middle and secondary school up until the 10th grade. Due to the large number of pupils without any background in the German language, the teachers and interns have the special challenge of integrating these pupils into the school.

Generally, the GSIS gladly takes interns for the kindergarten, school and administration.

Please read through the frequently asked questions before submitting your application letter to us: Please do contact us if your queries are not answered below.

What is the appropriate duration of an internship?
In the kindergarten and school, the interns should be able to stay at least six months to ensure that the children do not have to constantly adapt to changes. The working hours are 38.5 hours per week from 7.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Three to six months is an appropriate duration for an internship within the school administration.

When must I apply?
We do not have any fixed times for application and starting of internships.

What are the requirements for the interns?
Interns first language should be German and a good knowledge of English would be an advantage. It would be ideal if the interns area of studies or future profession fits into the framework of the internship.

Who should I address my application to?
Please address your application and all attached documents (CV, reference letters, referees) stating the desired period of internship to the head of administration:

We also welcome prospective applications.

Do I receive any payment for the internship or are there any scholarships available?
School and administration interns receive an allowance for expenses.

Interns will have to apply for scholarships personally, with applications directed to the German Academic Exchange Services (DAAD) or within the framework of the voluntary social work with the “Kulturweit”. Please take note that most of the scholarships need to be applied for approximately a year before the actual internship is due to start. We are glad to assist you with any required confirmation which needs to be handed in with the application for scholarship.

How do I find an apartment in Accra?
We support you in looking for an apartment and would recommend various contacts ahead of time. It would be advisable to spend the first week in a guest house and then personally take a look at the various options for apartments and shared house on your arrival in Accra.
