Who we are

Inspire, Educate and Empower Rwanda (IEE) is a Rwandan local Education Not-For-Profit Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). Since 2005, in collaboration with partners, IEE complements efforts of the Ministry of Education/ Rwanda Basic Education Board, supporting education implementation for quality learning outcomes. IEE designs and delivers innovative programmes to address challenges to provision of quality education. IEE programmes range from: teacher development training and technical assistance, teaching and learning, curriculum and material development, research and evaluation, education policies and systems reform.

In the context of the Mastercard Foundation- funded Leaders in Teaching (LIT) initiative, IEE is implementing the Teaching Assistantships Project (TAP) under the LIT “Recruit” pillar. TAP is aimed at supporting Rwanda with skill-nurturing for passionate young people, with an interest in education, attracting them to join the teaching profession, and support education.  Through capacity building and exposure to teaching through teaching assistantships, a young, skilled teaching force will be nurtured to contribute to Ministry of Education priorities in the current Education Sector Strategic Plan (2018/19- 2014/25).

How we shall engage you

We shall recruit you, train you and deploy you to a school in your sector, near your home, where you will work with the support of a mentor and professional teachers for 9 months to support teaching as an assistant teacher. You will be engaged in a range of teaching activities for science or arts subjects, including lesson preparation and delivery, and support for learners’ remedial learning. This will be an opportunity for you to share your knowledge and inspire students as their role model.

This is a life-changing opportunity!

What you will benefit

You will have opportunities for training in a range of areas including English language for teaching, planning for teaching and teaching methodology, study strategies and personal development, gender awareness and gender responsive pedagogy, and inclusive education.

You will also have opportunities to share your knowledge with others, in the comfort of your neighbourhood as you develop your skills while continuing to stay with your family. You will have a rare opportunity of interacting with your teacher role models and understand how they do their work. By the end of the nine months of teaching assistantships, you will have gained skills, values and attitudes to enable you to become the best you can be, as a professional and leader to contribute to and support quality learning for Rwandan social and economic transformation.

During your deployment, you will be facilitated monthly from your home to the school where you will be the assistant teacher, a laptop with content to support your Teaching Assistantship, career and personal development, and at the end of your Teaching Assistantship opportunity, you will receive a start-up package for tertiary studies!

Equally exciting, you will be added into the Teaching Assistant alumni community where you will connect with other talented young people with a platform for fraternity and solidarity to support Education.

If you are ready for this life-changing opportunity, please send your application letter including your address: district and sector, names and contacts of your Head Teacher and Director of Studies, and copies of high school documents indicating a minimum of 50 aggregates, to The Country Director, Inspire Educate and Empower Rwanda (IEE) at iee.job.hr@gmail.com before August 19, 2021.

 Important Note: Please ONLY write Teaching Assistant as the subject of your application email. Failure to observe this instruction will lead to disqualification.

Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.
