We are looking to recruit qualified teachers with excellent secondary school teaching and leadership skills to deliver “master classes” to teachers of maths or English for a period of 2 – 3 weeks (dates in July/August tbc). The programme 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.
You must be a qualified teacher with at least five years secondary school teaching experience in a maths or English role. You must have an excellent understanding of teaching strategies for pupils to the UK equivalent of years 8-13 and be able to communicate this to African teachers. You will relish a challenge and be able to demonstrate previous experience of team-working and volunteer work.
Warwick in Africa is wholly funded by philanthropic donations and, like other similar schemes; we will need participants’ support to help raise some of the costs of their trip. The cost of a place on the Programme is £500, but you may of course decide to fundraise for the programme to offset some of the cost of your place . We will support participants as active fundraisers by providing a pack with fundraising ideas and tools.
Formal recruitment will take place at the University on 21 January 2012 with two further training sessions on Saturday 18 February 2012 and 23 June 2012 should you be successful in your application.
