World Vision is a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. We are a community of close to 40,000 staff working across the world to help change the lives of vulnerable children. Our supporters, partners and staff join forces with communities on the ground to help children enjoy good health, be educated for life, experience the love of God and their neighbours and be cared for, protected and participating in addressing issues that affect their lives. World Vision has been active in Zimbabwe since 1973. Our operations are spread across 9 out of 10 provinces, with a majority of over 1.75 million beneficiaries in rural areas. Our current programs focus on improving the well-being of boys and girls in three priority sectors: health and nutrition, livelihoods and education. We also focus on child protection, gender and disabilities, emergency assistance and resilience building as cross cutting priorities across our programs. If you share the same vision, JOIN US and contribute to life in all its fullness for the children and communities we serve.
About the grant : The Department for International Development (DFID) is funding a 4-year, £12 million Teacher Professional Development (TPD) initiative, that is part of the broader Teacher Effectiveness and Equitable Access for All Children Programme (TEACH) in Zimbabwe. TEACH has been designed to contribute to a positive shift in the trajectory of teaching and learning outcomes in Zimbabwe; leaving no child behind. The TPD component is scheduled to launch this year (2020) beginning with six-month Inception Phase followed by multiyear Implementation Phases. The TPD aims to improve the capacity of primary and secondary teachers in Zimbabwe to deliver high-quality education using evidence-based targeted in-service teacher training.
