Closing date: 11 October 2018
Job Type: Paid
Location: Ethiopia
Team Leader and Deputy Team Leader to lead an ambitious DFID funded education project to transform the quality of attainment in Ethiopian schools

Education Development Trust has formed an exciting partnership with other leading international education specialists to tender for the management of the new Technical Assistance for Support to the General Education Quality Improvement Programme for Equity (GEQIP-E) financed by the UK’s DfID.

We’re looking for two exceptional individuals, a Team Leader and a Deputy Team Leader, to lead this £20m package of Technical Assistance that will provide essential support to the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Education as it implements GEQIP-E over the next four-years.

GEQIP-E forms part of the Government of Ethiopia’s ambitious Education Sector Development Plan V for Growth and Transformation. The objective of GEQIP-E is to transform the quality of attainment in Ethiopian schools and increase the participation of disadvantaged learners so that children from all social groups (children attending schools in the poorer regions, pastoralist children, girls and children with disabilities) are better equipped for the workplace.

Beginning in March 2019, the purpose of the TA programme is to provide flexible and responsive support to the Ministry, regions, Woredas (districts) and schools, and improve the impact of GEQIP-E including quality, equity, efficiency, financing and M&E.

The centrepiece of the TA programme is the design and delivery of a school leadership development programme, based on UK and international experience, that will focus on improved school performance, strengthened central and local delivery structures, and improved data analysis and monitoring.

If you are a development professional with experience of leading large scale, complex programmes we would love to hear from you.
