An opportunity to support the development of primary education in Rwanda through the implementation of successful monitoring and evaluation systems.
Rwanda's government has increased the numbers of children attending primary schooling, however with the increase has come increased workload for teachers. Many teachers have to cope with a system of 'double shifting' (where students come to school in the morning, and others come in the afternoon) – this entails a heavy workload and little preparation time for teachers, and hence low motivation levels risk dropping further. The Monitoring and Evaluation Adviser will support the effective development and implementation plan for a funded programme to ensure an appropriate M and E system is in place, and ensure that the right information is collected, analysed, and reported on.
The Monitoring and evaluation adviser will support the effective development and implementation of a DfID funded programme by ensuring an appropriate M&E system is in place, and ensuring the right information is collected, analysed, and reported on. To do this you will:
You'll have a Bachelor or Masters in a relevant subject, plus significant experience of M&E, data collection, data quality assurance and control data analysis. You'll be able to manage a heavy workload and have excellent IT skills (ideally: SPSS, GMS, EPI info, MS Access, ESRI software, STATA, MS Word & Excel). Your experience will include database management and development, gathering baseline surveys, M&E exercises and impact monitoring. Ideally you'll also have experience providing technical support for pre and post-surveys in conflict areas, camp settings or with pastoralist communities. You'll be an excellent communicator, able to work autonomously, in a results-oriented way with limited resources and work with a wide range of people in a sensitive way.
You'll be based in Kigali. We'll ask you to commit to at least 24 months to make a sustainable contribution to our development goals. In return, we'll provide you with training before your placement and a local living allowance, return flights, accommodation, insurance and more. When you return to your home country, we'll support you to resettle.
