English Enrichment Teacher and Trainer

Project Description

Education Resource Centers (ERCs) under the Ministry of Education and Science (MoES) of Georgia have requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as an English Enrichment Teacher and Trainer. English language teaching is a priority for the government of Georgia and ERCs transfer information about new initiatives, reforms or projects of MoES to schools and support schools in the process of organizing and implementing various educational programs. The ERCs have identified three areas where PCRV support will help them achieve improved quality of student learning and teacher capacity: English teachers' professional development; English and livelihood skills of students and local youth; and staff capacity building in professional skills.

The PCRV will implement workshops/trainings in English language, classroom management, lesson planning and other areas based on the needs of local teachers, as well as guiding English language learning and digital skills development of ERC staff, teachers, students, and other community members, in instructional or informal settings. The PCRV will also identify English teacher counterparts from nearby schools and villages and co-teach in classroom setting at least three times a week with them between 10-12 hours a week, in order to integrate new methodologies into the classroom.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Georgia together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
