Consultancy: Subject Content Support for Math & Science

Background

The Basic Education Support towards Transition Project (BEST) Phase III is funded by the European Union to the amount of 2 million EUR, for implementation from March 2017- End Feb 2019 and the PREPS IV phase is funded by the Australian Government (DFAT) to the amount of AUD$500,000 from July 2018-end June 2019. The BEST/PREPS project contributes to the achievement of durable education solutions for the refugee camp population in Thailand by supporting the provision of quality basic education for students in nine refugee camps along the Thailand-Burma/Myanmar border, supporting teachers to build education capacity, and facilitating progress towards sustainable education solutions.

Save the Children (SCI) leads the BEST/PREPS project and works with partner organisations to implement the activities i.e. Adventist Development Relief Agency Thailand (ADRA), Right to Play (RTP) and Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) in cooperation with Karen Refugee Committee Education Entity (KRCEE) and Karenni Education Department (KnED). RTP is working in seven predominantly Karen camps, whilst JRS is in two predominantly Karenni camps. ADRA addresses infrastructure needs and manages tendering and procurement for textbooks and other teaching and learning materials in 7 Karen camps. As the project lead, SCI provides managerial oversight.

The BEST/PREPS team developed an integrated teacher professional development framework to improve teacher professional development in the refugee camp context of the Karen camps. The new framework was rolled out in 2017. Subsequently, an evaluation was carried out between May and August 18 to capture the current state of teacher professional development in light of implemented changes.

Consultancy Description

Based on the evaluation outcomes, teachers shared that they desired to have deeper subject content knowledge, especially in upper grades and specifically in Math and Science. Currently, subject specific trainers in Math and Science are lacking for high school level in the Karen camps. In this regard, limited support is provided to teachers to help them prepare lesson plans, create teaching and learning resources and review subject content for future lessons.

As such, the purpose of this consultancy is to plan, develop and deliver Grade 10-12 Math and Science subject content training to camp-based teachers and trainers across the 7 Karen camps. The aim is to strengthen subject content knowledge of camp-based teachers and support them in developing classroom resources to deliver quality lessons for children. 

The consultant is expected to:

  • In consultation with camp education authorities and BEST/PREPS partners, review Math and Science subject content for Grade 10-12 and identify topics that teachers require additional support and guidance
  • Design and develop Math and Science training modules and materials jointly with camp education authorities and BEST/PREPS partners
  • Jointly plan and schedule to deliver a 1-week training session each for Math and Science subjects across 7 Karen camps (some camps can be consolidated into one location)
  • Subject to approval from authorities, video record the training sessions of each subject for future content support
  • Develop pre-/post-test evaluation forms for monitoring purposes
  • Deliver training according to agreed schedule and timeline
