JOB POST: Inclusive Education Adviser, Kati, Mali: Intellectually disabled children
Inclusive education adviser, with a focus on intellectually disabled children
Institut d’Education Populaire (IEP), Kati, Mali
IEP is a collective of community educators working to develop alternative approaches in curriculum, methodology and materials for grassroots education in Mali. Long before inclusive education became official government policy in Mali, IEP’s CIWARA Community School was including disabled children in classes. At a social level, disabled children have become very well integrated, but at an academic level, progress has been very limited: none of the teachers has training related to the needs of disabled children, the government lacks the resources to provide education for all, and IEP is now looking for support in developing teaching, animation, support and evaluation in inclusive schools like CIWARA. Based in Kati (15km from Bamako) and working closely with a small team, you will provide an input in developing curriculum and methodology, provide training to staff members, establish a monitoring and follow-up system, and develop a training module for the programme of teacher training colleges. IEP is looking for someone with specialist expertise (qualifications/experience) related to understanding the needs and capabilities of mentally disabled children in inclusive environments; classroom teaching experience is also essential, together with the capacity to develop materials, a highly flexible, creative and sensitive approach, and a good knowledge of French.
