Teach for Georgia

Reforms initiated by the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia are aimed at teaching and learning development at schools. In spite of multiple activities carried out in this direction, lack of qualified teaching staff at high mountainous regions in Georgia still remains a problem to be tackled. Often schools don’t have teachers of subjects defined by the National Curriculum. Cases are also frequent when a subject is taught by not subject specialists. The statement is supported by unfilled vacancies posted at the teacher vacancy web-page :( and program data base. Thus the situation doesn’t guarantee the equal opportunities for quality education for students.

Consultant-teachers selected on contest–bases will be disseminated in public schools of Georgia to fill in the vacancies. The Consultant-teachers will develop action plan based on various subject teaching needs and National Curriculum, with close collaboration with school board. By the end of every term a progress report will be drafted by the teachers on the implemented activities. The consultant–teachers will employ the updated teaching methods. They will be constantly be held updated on center implemented programs/activities and news in profession, that will help them to realize the new initiatives in schools with maximal efficiency. The consultant-teachers will be employed in schools for at least one academic year and will improve the teaching and learning processes at schhols.
