VSO Jobs Vacancies 2018
VSO is currently implementing the Unlocking Talent through Technology project in various primary schools in Malawi. The projects uses tablet technology to improve core competencies of reading, writing and mathematics for Standard 1 and 2 (early grade) primary school children. This is an exciting initiative that will among other things provide real time data to teachers and school administrators on learner’s progress. This provides new and different opportunities and challenges that educators need to respond to. The project is thus looking for an education specialist who will be able to train and support the teachers and school administrators to be able to respond to these challenges and to mainstream this new approach into their teaching as well as the overall school activities.

Some background about VSO
Much has changed since VSO started 60 years ago. We’ve gone from being a UK charity to a truly global development organisation. In 2016/2017 alone, we worked with over 7,000 volunteers from all over the world and from all backgrounds to deliver services that had an impact on the lives of almost 2.6 million people in the 24 countries where we work. Our programmes 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 organisations, 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 programmes. 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.
VSO is the world’s leading development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty. We are unique in the way we bring people together to share their skills and experience, generate insights and ideas and, most of all, take action against poverty and exclusion. It’s a highly effective approach that works, and today is helping millions of people in some of the world’s poorest communities lift themselves out of poverty.
