Provide training and coaching of Special Needs Education Coordinators across several districts of Rwanda to improve the learning of children with disabilities which enable an improvement in their overall quality of education.

Country: Rwanda
Application closing date:  Flexible
Start date: April 2021 (if the situation allows it)
Duration: 12-24 Months
 
Note that this position involves working across several districts of the country.  To travel to districts you would usually travel on local buses.  Travel within districts will usually be as a passenger on motorbike taxis.

Thousands of teachers around the world do not get the necessary training and support, and as a consequence pupils do not reach their full potential. VSO is working to change this.

This program improves children’s foundational English and Mathematic skills across all government schools in one district and is part of the ‘Building Learning Foundations’ program. This program focuses on establishing solid foundations at the lower primary
level in all of Rwanda’s state-funded primary schools. Improvements in learner outcomes in the lower primary grades are intended to improve children’s learning achievement in higher grades and so increase equitable access to primary and secondary education
for girls and boys across the country.
As a VSO volunteer, you will immerse yourself in a new culture, face fresh challenges and develop your expertise, and often also management skills while doing something truly fulfilling. The local office or partner’s need will decide your exact job description.

Role overview
The Teacher Educator will play a crucial role in VSO’s teacher education project in Myanmar. Based at an Education College, you will support teacher education reforms in Myanmar and build the capacity of local Teacher Educators (TEs) to deliver the new 4-year
pre-service degree course. The role will focus on inclusive teaching practices and, in particular, the access, participation and achievement of children with disabilities.

The ideal applicant will have:

Essential:

  • Bachelor’s degree or post-graduate qualification in education
  • Minimum of five years of primary or secondary school teaching experience
  • Expert knowledge of pedagogy and inclusive classroom practice
  • Strong track record in planning, delivering and monitoring teacher Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programs
  • Experience of mentoring teachers

Desirable:

  • Qualifications in special needs
  • Experience of working in Myanmar or SE Asia is an added advantage

Besides these skills, you need to be open-minded, respectful, resilient, and adaptive to new situations. It is important that you can facilitate positive change, build sustainable working relationships, and are willing to seek and share knowledge.

  

Terms & conditions
The experience of a placement is a one-of-a-life-time experience and will benefit you in multiple ways. You will have the chance to learn to work with people from different cultural backgrounds. There is often the opportunity to develop your teamwork-, leadership-
and management skills. This can be helpful for career opportunities after your placement.
VSO will cover and support you in all preparations: training, visa, work permit, registration in-country, flights, vaccinations, anti-malarial treatment, PEP treatment, medical and security clearance. In-country VSO will provide induction and support in placement,
arrange secure accommodation (often shared with another VSO professional), full medical insurance (including repatriation cover), medical indemnity insurance, work-related travel costs, and a living allowance which will enable you to live a basic but healthy
lifestyle, but which is not sufficient to cover ongoing commitments at home. 

Note that this position involves working across several districts of the country.  To travel to districts you would usually travel on local buses.  Travel within districts will usually be as a passenger on motorbike taxis.

What we do at VSO
Our programs focus on the areas of health, education, and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on resilience building, social accountability, gender, and social inclusion. We believe progress is only possible when we work together and that strong partnerships
are crucial to delivering positive change. That’s why we work with over 500 partner organizations, from local and national governments to businesses, NGOs, funders, charities and community groups. Currently, over 30% of our people are recruited from within
the country in which they work, and we continue to grow the share of community and national volunteers involved in our programs. We also send increasing numbers of volunteers from one developing country to another. However, our vision has remained the same;
to build a world without poverty.

Coronavirus/COVID19
The world currently faces challenges on a scale not seen in a century. As a global organization, efforts to control COVID-19 will certainly result in changes to VSO’s activities and operations in the coming months. At this moment we are not sending international
professional volunteers abroad. We have dedicated teams monitoring the situation, working across locations, programmes and projects to ensure we respond appropriately and responsibly – and that no one is left behind. We’ll continue to recruit professional
volunteers and maintain a talent pool, to be prepared to work with them in the face of this uncertainty to plan for the future and build a fair world for everyone. If you have any questions about our current programs and where we currently operate, don’t hesitate
to contact our recruiter Kelly.
