Education Rwanda

VSO has opportunities for primary teach​ers and leaders to help transform the quality of education in Rwanda.

Education is a high priority for the Rwandan government. Since 1998 we have supported their aim of achieving quality basic education for all. In that time, great progress has been made to improve access, however, despite the increased access and participation, significant quality issues remain.

Building on our existing work in Rwanda, VSO is working with the Rwandan government and other aid agencies to provide a renewed programme that focuses on improving quality.

Launched in 2013, the programme will deliver a range of volunteer placements designed to tackle the crucial issues and provide support where it is needed. We need experienced primary teachers, head teachers, school leaders, curriculum managers, special needs and literacy/language specialists to share their skills with fellow teachers and school leaders and help transform the quality of education. Current roles include:

  • Literacy and Numeracy Adviser

  • Teaching Methodology Adviser

  • Methodology and Resources Adviser

  • Early Childhood Education In-Service Methodology Adviser

  • Early Childhood Pre-Service Methodology Adviser

If you’re an education professional with relevant skills and experience, and this sound like the opportunity you’ve been looking for, why not join us? You’ll develop new skills, make new friends - and most importantly - make a lasting difference to Rwanda's education system and communities. Begin your exciting journey to Rwanda by applying today.
