Take your keyboard to sunnier skies! Bring your IT skills to the Pacific and help Edwards Computer Foundation improve their training courses and meet the Vanuatu Qualification Competency Standards.
Edwards Computer Foundation (ECF) is well known in the areas of conducting training in Microsoft applications to employees in their workplaces, conducting MS computing training with adults in its training labs, and conducting training to students from primary and secondary schools around Vanuatu through a unique ‘younger’ computer training program. ECF also has a strong base with its higher-end trainings, with Certificate, Diploma and Post Graduate Diploma programs in Information Technology (IT). ECF plays an important role in equipping employees with basic and advanced ICT skills that are much needed in all work places, and provide a second chance for students who have dropped out from formal education early.
The focus of your role will be to develop ECF’s capacity to maintain Vanuatu Qualification Authority (VQA) standards at all times. You will also help to increase their capacity in marketing their training programs, and improve the capacity of trainers to plan and prepare learning materials and deliver trainings workshops.
Your role will greatly contribute to providing continuing education options for students outside of the formal education system and will directly enable community members to pursue further studies, to be employed in ICT enterprises, or to be self-employed.
