Director of Teacher Training Grades K-6
Location: Siem Reap, Cambodia

Job Overview:

Caring for Cambodia (CFC) is seeking a Full-Time Director of Teacher Training Grades K-6 for the 2010-2011 school year (July ‘10-July ‘11). Caring for Cambodia, founded in 2003, is an NGO that supports five government schools in Siem Reap, Cambodia serving more than 5,000 of Cambodia’s poorest students. Teacher Training has become a cornerstone of CFC’s work to improve basic education in Cambodia’s government schools. Over the last three years, CFC has developed an effective, hands-on model for teacher training that supports our teachers in the effective delivery of the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport (MoEYS) recently revised curriculum for primary schools. Additionally, CFC has established a Teacher Training Center to develop curriculum resources and conduct training workshops for Cambodian teachers from neighboring schools. This training is part of a capacity building “Train the Trainer” project where CFC’s most promising teachers are trained to conduct workshops for fellow teachers.

CFC’s schools are positioned as model schools in Siem Reap Province. Likewise, our teacher training efforts have been acknowledged by MoEYS and fellow NGOs as a model for effective teacher training. CFC’s Director of Teacher Training Grades K-6 will report to CFC’s Cambodia-based Country Director/Superintendant of Schools and CFC’s Singapore-based President. She or he will have the opportunity to take a well-established project and deepen its impact.
