The Organisation

The Vanuatu Education Support Program Phase II (VESP II) is funded by the Australian Government’s aid program and implemented in cooperation with the Government of Vanuatu (GoV). The program includes two components:

a) Targeted support to Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) to implement the Vanuatu Education and Training Sector Strategy (VETSS); and

b) Provision of the Australia Awards Vanuatu Scholarships and professional development and networking opportunities for alumni.

VESP II is designed to align with MoET’s draft Corporate Plan and the NSDP. Specifically, VESP Phase II is designed to support MoET’s contribution to NSDP Pillar 1 (quality education and social inclusion) and Pillar 3 (stable and equitable growth). In addition, VESP II aligns with MoET’s Inclusive Education Policy and will support GoV’s contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – Goal 4 (ensure inclusive and quality education for all and lifelong learning) and Goal 10 (reduce inequality within and among countries).

As an organisation we take enormous pride in collaborating with our program partners to build trust, mutual respect and striving for achievement.

The Position

The Curriculum Improvement Coordinator provides support to strengthen the alignment of curriculum implementation efforts across relevant sections of the Ministry. This includes fostering relationships between the Curriculum Development Unit, the School of Education, School-based Management, the Examinations Unit, and Provincial Education Offices to strengthen curriculum implementation in classrooms.

A key aim of the role is to strengthen approaches for curriculum implementation in schools. This includes teaching and learning from k-10 with a focus on improving literacy outcomes. This will be achieved through supporting the curriculum improvement strategies of the Curriculum Development Unit and working with the Provincial Education Offices.

The position will receive close coaching and mentoring support from the Curriculum Improvement Adviser over an appropriate timeframe so that the Coordinator is guided and supported into this complex and diverse role. Following this, the Coordinator will continue to work with the Vanuatu Education Support Program relevant advisers and officers.
