Country: Myanmar
Application closing date:  Flexible
Start date: April 2021 (if the situation allows it)
Duration: 12-24 Months

In Myanmar, there are several things happening in the education system that provide challenges. A 5 year VSO programme in Myanmar is helping to introduce a new curriculum, improve teacher training standards as well as change how students are assessed. We are urgently recruiting Teacher Educators.

As a VSO volunteer, you will immerse yourself in a new culture, face fresh challenges and develop your expertise, and often also management skills while doing something truly fulfilling. The local office or partner’s need will decide your exact job description.  

Role Overview
The Teacher Educator will play a crucial role in VSO’s teacher education project in Myanmar. Based at an Education College, you will support teacher education reforms in Myanmar and build the capacity of local Teacher Educators (TEs) to deliver the new 4-year pre-service degree course. The role will focus on inclusive teaching practices and, in particular, the access, participation and achievement of children with disabilities.


 

Profiel kandidaat

The ideal applicant will have:

Essential:

  • Bachelor’s degree or post-graduate qualification in education
  • Minimum of five years of primary or secondary school teaching experience
  • Expert knowledge of pedagogy and inclusive classroom practice
  • Strong track record in planning, delivering and monitoring teacher Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programs
  • Experience of mentoring teachers
Desirable:
  • Qualifications in special needs
  • Experience of working in Myanmar or SE Asia is added advantage
Besides these skills, you need to be open-minded, respectful, resilient, and adaptive to new situations. It is important that you can facilitate positive change, build sustainable working relationships, and are willing to seek and share knowledge.

The experience of a placement is a one-of-a-life-time experience and will benefit you in multiple ways. You will have the chance to learn to work with people from different cultural backgrounds. There is often the opportunity to develop your teamwork-, leadership- and management skills. This can be helpful for career opportunities after your placement.

VSO will cover and support you in all preparations: training, visa, work permit, registration in-country, flights, vaccinations, anti-malarial treatment, PEP treatment, medical and security clearance. In-country VSO will provide induction and support in placement, arrange secure accommodation (often shared with another VSO professional), full medical insurance (including repatriation cover), medical indemnity insurance, work-related travel costs, and a living allowance which will enable you to live a basic but healthy lifestyle, but which is not sufficient to cover ongoing commitments at home. 

Coronavirus/COVID19
The world currently faces challenges on a scale not seen in a century. As a global organization, efforts to control COVID-19 will certainly result in changes to VSO’s activities and operations in the coming months. At this moment we are not sending international professional volunteers abroad. We have dedicated teams monitoring the situation, working across locations, programmes and projects to ensure we respond appropriately and responsibly – and that no one is left behind. We’ll continue to recruit professional volunteers and maintain a talent pool, to be prepared to work with them in the face of this uncertainty to plan for the future and build a fair world for everyone. If you have any questions about our current programs and where we currently operate, don’t hesitate to contact our recruiter Kelly.
