National Performance Manager - Building Learning Foundations - Rwanda

Job ref: 01335
Job type: Fixed-term contract
Salary/rate: Competitive
Date posted: 21/07/2017
Location: Rwanda
Currency: RWF
Closing date: 07/08/2017
Job purpose:

The primary responsibility of the National Performance Manager (NPM) will be to design and implement a district and national level data management system for the new Building Learning Foundations (BLF) programme in Rwanda. BLF is a three-year project, funded by the UK DFID, that aims to strengthen the Rwandan Education system through a series of targeted interventions that will improve the quality of teaching and leadership in primary schools and raise functional literacy and numeracy outcomes for all children.
The NPM will be part of the senior management team, report directly to the Team Leader, and will be pivotal to programmes success.
Scope: The NPM will manage the initial creation of:
1) A system for the collection, management and analysis of teacher and student assessment data;
2) Systems and tools for monitoring and tracking the quality of teaching and learning.
This will include determining the correct metrics to assess interim and long-term programme outcomes around learning, teaching and school leadership, and ensuring the data architecture runs from school to national level. It will also require alignment with existing data management systems (including EMIS) and successful integration by the end of the programme to ensure sustainability.
The NPM will be responsible for training and supporting the teams responsible for collecting and inputting data at the school and district and level. The NPM will work alongside national and district level Government departments to strengthen monitoring and accountability and bring immediate and lasting change. Alignment with data capture/metrics from other local programmes (e.g. Soma Umenye “Read and Know”) will also be key to the success of this role.
The NPM will also monitor and analyse results and report lessons learned to Ministry of Education Rwanda (MINEDUC) and Rwanda Education Board (REB) to inform subsequent roll out to other districts within the BLF programme. The National Education Taskforce (NET) will be responsible for providing capacity building and support to MINEDUC departments and local officials in order to develop and implement a systematic approach to the collection and effective use of data.
To apply for this role you will need to hold a university degree, and preferably a relevant qualification or post-graduate degree in information management or related subject; have experience in the design, implementation, reporting and analysis of systems to collect complex data and be able to show evidence of working on large-scale national education reform programmes, preferably in a low-income context.
