Alumni Teaching Pilot
We are now planning to expand the Warwick in Africa project to Ghana in 2010 and are looking to recruit Warwick alumni with excellent teaching and leadership skills to deliver “master classes” to teachers of Maths or English. This pilot project will draw on the extra experience and leadership skills of Warwick alumni to work with teachers and make a sustainable impact on the Ghanaian education system.
The Warwick in Africa project is wholly funded by philanthropic donations and, like other similar schemes, we will need participants’ support to raise the costs of their trip and make this exciting new step possible. We will support participants as active fundraisers by providing a pack with fundraising ideas and tools.
You must be a Warwick graduate with at least three years secondary school teaching experience in a Maths or English role or two years teaching experience if you have previously participated in the Warwick in Africa Teaching Project. You must have an excellent understanding of maths teaching strategies for pupils to the UK equivalent of years 8-13 and be able to communicate this to Ghanaian teachers. You will relish a challenge and be able to demonstrate previous experience of team-working and volunteer work.
