English Language Teacher - Canadians Only
Location Ethiopia
12 Months | Start Date between Dec 2018 - Feb 2019

Open to Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents only

The Volunteer’s Role

Benishangul-Gumuz (BSG) is one of Ethiopia’s emerging regional states with an estimated total population of nearly a million people. The Regional Health Bureau (RHB) is making every effort to provide integrated, effective, and equitable health services through the extensively expanding primary health care program.

Currently, there are 37 Health Centres and 398 Health Posts operating as primary health care units for the general community and few more are under construction. Nonetheless, limitation of skilled health workers, supplies, and management support has impeded the quality of services provided in most of these health facilities.

Pawe College of health science is the only health science college managed by the regional health bureau in addition to the federal university, Assosa University. This college has no Gender Advisor that helps to analyze gaps that hinder the institution to serve the community at scale.

The overall objective of the placement is to support and improve the English proficiency of college instructors, students and other administrative staff through in-service training which helps to improve the quality of education, so that students and instructors can fulfil their potential. Teachers often lack the facility with English to be able to effectively teach their pupils. So this placement will help them to meet the objectives for producing competent health professionals.

As a volunteer, you will:

- Support the development of English language-focused Continuous Professional Development

- Conduct training needs assessments and capacity building sessions for teachers, students, and administration staff

- Strengthen links with other similar institutions, so that good practice and expertise can be shared

- Conduct monitoring and evaluation, and give feedback regarding progress to the college

Essential Academic Qualifications:

Degree in English Language or related field & a TEFL or TESL teaching qualification

Essential Professional Background:

Minimum of 2 years teaching experience in an active learning environment or volunteering activities

About Our Partner: Pawe Health Science College

Established in 1992, the Pawe Health Science College operates as the only health institution in the region and is aimed at reducing mobility, mortality and disability in Ethiopia. They also hope to improve the health status of the region by providing a comprehensive package of preventive, promotive, rehabilitative and basic curative health services via a decentralized and democratized health system in collaboration with all stakeholders.

The college has been under the management of the Benishangul-Gumuz Regional Health Bureau since 1995 and their vision is to ensure a healthy, productive and prosperous regional population.

We ask each volunteer, regardless of placement length, to raise $2,000. All volunteers receive support from Cuso International to help achieve the goal through fundraising.
