Job description

About PEAS:

We are PEAS. We are an international education not-for-profit with the mission to ‘expand access to sustainably delivered, quality secondary education across Africa’. Our vision is for a world where all children enjoy an education that unlocks their full potential.

For the last ten years, PEAS has built and operated quality secondary schools in under-served communities in Uganda and Zambia. We now have a network of 32 schools across Uganda and Zambia educating over 14,000 marginalised students. PEAS has strong evidence from a number of external studies showing that our schools in Uganda are more equitable, better quality and more cost-effective than comparison private and government schools.

PEAS has achieved great things in the last 10 years, and we want to achieve even more in the next 10 years. We are proud of what we have already achieved, but we are ambitious for our schools and students. We now want to make PEAS schools some of the best in Uganda and Zambia. At the same time, we also want to  support the wider education systems in the places where we’re working and globally by sharing our evidence and know-how.
