Inspire teaching staff to improve support literacy and numeracy in adult agriculture students.

Vanuatu Agriculture College (VAC) needs a talented volunteer to upskill their training staff and help ensure students graduate with improved opportunities for the future.

VAC is an inclusive educator and they encourage those with low levels of literacy and numeracy to enrol into their courses. VAC have talented training staff who come from agriculture backgrounds, and they are aware they need support to better understand literacy and numeracy themselves, allowing them in turn to support their students.

You will work with VAC staff to develop literacy and numeracy policies and processes, including identifying suitable resources to ensure that improvements are long-term and sustainable.

In this rewarding role you will work alongside and mentor the college training manager and trainers, as well as help build capacity at an organisational level through developing college-wide policies and promoting adult education, literacy and numeracy.

You will focus on actively up-skilling staff at VAC through a range of avenues, including running train-the-trainer courses and integrating ICT into VAC courses.

Your ability to help make informed decisions on the implementation of strategic plans, policies and processes will be valued, and help the lasting success of your work with VAC.

We are looking for a volunteer with:

  • A qualification in education
  • Significant teaching experience in a post-school or adult education setting
  • Demonstrated knowledge of adult literacy, numeracy and curriculum development
  • Experience training-the-trainers or experience building capacity of teaching staff
  • Proficient using Microsoft Office.

This is a 2-year assignment based in Luganville, Vanuatu.

VSA volunteers receive a living allowance and accommodation, insurance, and medical costs are provided. Travel arrangements are organised and funded by VSA along with other costs.
