Afghanistan remains a protracted and complex emergency. Conflict-induced displacement and recurrent natural disasters occur at the same time as ongoing return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan and Iran. The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) established operations in Afghanistan in 2003. We respond across Afghanistan, including in hard-to-access provinces, by providing Information, Counselling and Legal Assistance, Education, Shelter, Food & Livelihoods, Camp Management and Emergency programmes.
NRC Afghanistan has a large and evolving humanitarian education portfolio, including Education First Response to forced displacement, community-based accelerated education for internally displaced and returnee boys and girls, psychosocial support to conflict-displaced and refugee boys and girls, and a strong interest in the Protection of Education amid insecurity and conflict. In time, NRC Afghanistan will also focus on engagement of displaced Afghan youth, particularly through collaboration with Education and Livelihoods competencies.
ABOUT THE POSITION:
The purpose of the Education Specialist position is to take responsibility of the technical development of NRC’s Education programme in Afghanistan, including its strategic direction and quality assurance. The Education Specialist is also responsible for management of the Education Team in the Programme & Protection Unit, and the capacity development of relevant Educational staff.
