Vocational English Instructor and Trainer

Project Description

The Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia (MoES)
Professional Skills Agency has requested the support of Peace Corps Response Volunteers (PCRVs) to serve as Vocational English Instructor and Trainers. One of the major goals of MoES is the creation of a nationwide vocational education and training (VET) system that promotes excellence in skills development that will equip the economically active population with management and technical skills necessary for Georgia to successfully compete in the modern economic environment both at home and abroad. MoES and the newly-established Professional Skills Agency are responsible for the modernization of the VET system in line with the best international standards.

The PCRVs will observe classes conducted by English language teachers, create a schedule of classes for co-teaching with local teachers, and co-develop lesson plans with local teachers using advanced teaching methodologies. The PCRVs will also design and facilitate communities of practices/workshops/seminars in modern teaching methodology and interactive methods of teaching and co-design or update English curricula for selected occupational modules.

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.
