VSO is the world’s leading international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty. Working in 24 countries around the world, our unique role in international development is to place committed volunteers with carefully selected organisations where their skills can have the greatest impact. Our extraordinary volunteers live and work in some of the world’s poorest communities. Sharing their unique skills and experience to generate new ideas and new ways of doing things, helping the communities they work in lift themselves out of poverty. We’re not about delivering quick fixes, but instead we focus on long-lasting, sustainable change, that will impact generations to come. Join us and help us work towards our vision of a world without poverty.
VSO is implementing the Unlocking Talent project in selected primary schools across Malawi. This exciting initiative uses tablet technology to improve core competencies of literacy and numeracy in early grade primary school in order to unlock the talent of every child. Students progress at their own pace using engaging software in the local language, Chichewa. The ideal candidate has primary education experience integrating technology in the classroom, as a teacher, teacher trainer and education technology strategist and is passionate about transforming teaching and learning for poor and marginalised children through digital education technology (DET).
