Project Description

An E-Learning Project Facilitation Specialist with a Bachelor’s degree in education, mathematics, science, or another relevant field and teaching experience is needed to assist in the implementation of an e-learning program for Math, Natural Science and English First Additional Language teachers in South Africa. Over the last eight years, JET Education Services has implemented a successful school intervention project for MRP Foundation in the KwaZulu-Natal Province within 45 primary schools and 7 High schools and in 2018 a further 20 primary schools in the Free State, 20 in Gauteng and 18 in the Western Cape. The project is designed to tackle the challenges associated with sustainable reform of rural education. The assistance of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) has been requested to support the teacher development component of the project (e-learning for Math, Natural Science and English First Additional Language).

The PCRVs will work closely with the Project Coordinator and Subject Specialist to implement the e-learning program for Math, Natural Science and English First Additional Language teachers. The PCRV will help with quarterly workshops, school visits and assist the teachers by going through e-tutorials during visits to the schools, as well as building capacity and supporting other team members in writing up reports on weekly activities undertaken during the school visits. The PCRV will also contribute to the capturing and data analysis of information gathered from the participation of the teachers in the e-learning program. The overall goal of the assignment is to effect meaningful improvement in educational outcomes at a school level in the MRP Foundation project schools by implementing an effective model of systemic school improvement.
