A propos de TaRL Africa :

TaRL Africa (Teaching at the Right Level Africa) est une nouvelle initiative menée conjointement par le Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) et l’ONG indienne Pratham. TaRL est une approche fondée sur des données probantes qui aide les enfants à acquérir des compétences de base en lecture et en mathématiques, ouvrant ainsi la voie à un avenir meilleur. 

Développée par Pratham, la méthodologie TaRL est basée sur plusieurs éléments clés au niveau de la salle de classe : à l’aide d’un outil simple (ASER), les enfants sont évalués sur leur capacité à lire et à faire des calculs. Les enfants sont ensuite regroupés en fonction de leurs aptitudes plutôt qu’en fonction de leur niveau scolaire. Chaque jour, pendant un temps dédié, l’accent est mis sur l’acquisition de compétences de base au moyen d’activités et de matériel adaptés à chaque groupe. Au fur et à mesure que les enfants progressent, ils passent au groupe d’apprentissage suivant et continuent de s’améliorer. 

Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) Africa travaille à l’amélioration des compétences de base en lecture et en calcul des enfants du continent africain et a pour but d’atteindre 3 millions d’enfants dans les cinq prochaines années. Les principaux pays dans lesquels TaRL Africa agit directement sont la Côte d’Ivoire, le Nigéria, le Kenya et la Zambie.

Project Coordinator – Catch Up Plus

 

Deadline: 30th June 2022

Duty Post: Lusaka, Zambia

 

VVOB is an international NGO with programmes and projects in 10 countries worldwide.

Hello! We’re excited to see you found your way to this job opening. That must mean you share our ambition to ensure learners around the world enjoy their fundamental human right to quality education, without exception. We’re looking forward to hearing from you. But first things first. Allow us to introduce ourselves, drawing on the great mystery behind our name. Since our establishment in 1982, ‘VVOB’ has evolved from a complex (Dutch) acronym to a stand-alone concept meaning education for development:

 

  • VVOB stands for ‘commitment’ – to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
  • VVOB stands for ‘integrity’ and ‘mutual respect’ – in working with our partner organisations across 10 countries / 3 continents.
  • VVOB stands for ‘quality’ and ‘innovation’ – of everything we do in our effort to improve education worldwide. Do you still feel like you’re in the right place? Great, because we’re hiring a Project Coordinator for our VVOB country team in Zambia.

 

VVOB in Zambia

In Zambia, VVOB is working in partnership with the Ministry of Education. We are building capacity on Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL). Our key focus points in ECE are ‘Learning through Play’ and ‘Emergent Literacy’. We are currently reaching 8 provinces with our work in ECE. The evidence-based TaRL approach helps learners in Grades 3, 4 and 5 to develop basic reading and numeracy skills. TaRL (or Catch Up – as it is known in Zambia) now reaches more than 400.000 learners spread over 6 provinces. Our ambition is to support MoGE in scaling the ‘Learning through Play’, ‘Emergent Literacy’ and ‘Teaching at the Right Level’ work.

 

Role Summery

As Catch Up Plus Project Coordinator you contribute to the ambitions of VVOB and Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) Africa by coordinating specific Catch Up/TaRL interventions particularly as pertains to ongoing research activities in specific Provinces (Western, Central and Southern provinces) and ensuring the impact, sustainability, relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the project. You will support the Ministry of Education (MoE) officials at province and district levels to ensure activities are implemented according to agreed work plans, budgets and TaRL principles. You ensure that assigned research on the Catch Up and Catch Up Plus Programme is implemented with quality.
