Job Description

ABOUT LINK COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Link Community Development is a family of not for profit organisations working together to transform education for children and communities across impoverished rural areas of Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda and Uganda. Since our foundation in 1995 we have worked in 3,000 schools and improved the lives of over two million children through unique and effective school improvement models. We guide governments and educators to adopt low-cost solutions to improve learning and support for children, with a focus on literacy, numeracy and inclusion for the most marginalised children. Through a partnership delivery model which embeds piloting and learning within local systems, we influence changes to policy, practice and accountability on a national scale, and our interventions are regularly adapted and replicated by governments and NGOs in new countries and contexts. Link Community Development International (LCDI), based in Edinburgh, Scotland supports all project, M&E, fundraising, finance and governance activities in our five sub-Saharan partner countries.

Specifically, Link will support the strengthening of the School Improvement Programme (SIP) and SIP standards, as well as the development of a number of ‘model interventions’ to be implemented in each region according to context with a focus on:

a) Improving inclusion of often-excluded children –  rural girls, children with special needs, and pastoralist children – using workable and innovative models to improve attendance and achievement of such disadvantaged learners.

b) Improved impact of school and cluster-based training on teacher performance in the classroom especially in early grade reading and writing.
