We are currently seeking qualified candidates for the position of Chief of Party for the upcoming USAID-funded Bridge to Middle School opportunity. This position will be based in Morocco—in Rabat or field offices in the project’s target departments—and is contingent upon award.
The anticipated project is a systems-strengthening and capacity-building intervention that seeks to improve students’ ability to master key skills in the upper primary and middle school (“junior secondary”) grades and to facilitate the transition between the two levels of schooling. Activities will address: a) the ability of teachers to teach critical thinking, and students to master, literacy skills, math skills, and science skills in the upper primary grades; b) the ability of the Moroccan education system to provide high-quality literacy instruction in English and Arabic in the middle school years; and c) the ability of the Moroccan education system to provide high-quality STEM (science, technology, and math) instruction in the middle school years. Additionally, the project will build subrecipients’ capacities to directly respond to the development problems prioritized by the USAID Mission in Morocco.
