Job Description

The Building Learning Foundations programme led by Education Development Trust in Rwanda is committed to improving the quality of teaching and leadership in all 2,500 of Rwanda’s government supported primary schools, so improving learning outcomes for 2.6 million Rwandan children. Funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), the programme is being implemented by a consortium of British not-for-profit organisations, led by Education Development Trust in partnership with the British Council and VSO. Our innovative and impactful programme design is based around three foundations: teacher development, leadership for learning and system strengthening, supported by our evidence-based research provision.

Over the past 3 years, BLF has already benefitted all P1 to P3 English and Mathematics teachers and improved learner outcomes of over one million P1 to P3 pupils. To prepare for the next stage of the programme, we are inviting applications from experienced educationalists for the post of BLF Education Technical Lead. Reporting to the Team Leader, this role will form part of the programme’s Senior Management Team, have technical oversight and accountability for the successful delivery of this programme and leadership of a multi-disciplinary team.

You will have a strong technical background in education and education reform, with specialist knowledge in one or more of the following areas: policy development/delivery, curriculum-related material design, teacher development, early grade literacy or education data management. Leadership or management gained in at least one large-scale improvement programme of a similar nature is essential. Previous experience of living and working in the region and an appreciation of the educational context in Rwanda is preferred.

Interviews will take place from the end of November to the beginning of December. The selected candidate will be expected to start work in Rwanda as soon as possible thereafter.

The salary and benefits package will be commensurate with the seniority of the role and region.
