Math Support Teacher Trainer

Project Description

The Curriculum Development Unit of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and National Reconciliation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines has requested the support of Peace Corps Response Volunteers (PCRVs) to serve as Math Support Teacher Trainers. The recent volcanic eruption and the experience of COVID-19 have created a learning loss in students. In response, the MOE had to quickly embark on the Education Recovery Program which aims to improve teaching of Math in schools. The desired goal of the program is to build the capacity of teachers and school administrators, particularly in the areas of literacy and numeracy.

The PCRVs will be part of a team of Education officers developing a plan to equip teachers and school administrators with the knowledge, skills and strategies needed to teach math, including blended learning, and they will collaborate in the development of a training plan to address the collection and analysis of student assessment data and progress records and their application in instruction. The PCRVs will also assist the Unit in designing professional development workshops for teachers based on the plans developed above.

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