Expressions of Interest - School Leadership Expert - Ethiopia

Closing Date:
01 Oct 2018
About the role

Education Development Trust have formed an exciting partnership with other leading international education specialists to tender for the management of the new Technical Assistance for Support to the General Education Quality Improvement Programme for Equity (GEQIP-E) financed by the UK’s DfID.

We’re looking for an experienced international educationalist with expertise in developing transformative School Leadership programmes to effect national change at school level. Our School Leadership Lead will be a senior member of our in-country management team that will provide essential support to the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Education as it implements GEQIP-E over the next four-years.

GEQIP-E forms part of the Government of Ethiopia’s ambitious Education Sector Development Plan V for Growth and Transformation. The objective of GEQIP-E is to transform the quality of attainment in Ethiopian schools and increase the participation of disadvantaged learners so that children from all social groups (children attending schools in the poorer regions, pastoralist children, girls and children with disabilities) are better equipped for the workplace.

Beginning in March 2019, the School Leadership Lead will be responsible for the design and delivery of a centrepiece school leadership development programme, based on UK and international experience. Working within existing systems, we will deliver an effective, decentralised, standardised, practical leadership training progamme and model of accreditation to staff in the Ministry, regions, Woredas (districts) and schools.

If you have the ambition to make a difference and the experience to work effectively in this dynamic context, we would love to hear from you.

To express your interest in the programme please click ‘apply’ below. You will be asked to complete a short application form, provide examples of your experience and upload your CV. We expect to be holding first interviews with shortlisted candidates at the beginning of October.
