Courses Intern Volunteer Roles in Belfast
EduSpots connects, trains and equips over 250 local volunteers who drive community-led change in rural Ghana and Kenya through education centers named ‘Spots’. Our Ghanaian staff team lead programmes in leadership, literacy development and STEM and sustainability, enabling our local volunteers to impact an estimated 15,000 learners annually in underserved communities. We won the Tes International Award in 2018 marking us as the best international education project in the UK for our global learning work, we were recently selected as a Finalist for the Their World Innovation Scale-Up Awards, and our Founder was selected as a finalist for the Global Teacher Prize in parntership with UNESCO.
We are looking for highly independent and self-motivated interns who are keen to gain practical skills and understanding relating to education and international development, and provide wide-ranging support to our team in Ghana and the UK, to enable us to increase our impact in a period of growth.
The internship will be remote for 3 months (start date to be confirmed, dependent on availability), with the opportunity of extending this period. The time is 8 hours / week but this can be spread out throughout the week. Due to limited organisational time, we need interns to be committed to the work, and able to work independently. We will consider interns in any geographical location.
You will gain huge insight into education and international development through learning and being inspired on a daily basis on WhatsApp by our active network of 250 volunteers in rural Ghana who are the main focus of our work and our reason for existence.
