Role overview

About Building Learning Foundations (BLF)

Building Learning Foundations (BLF) is a programme of the Ministry of Education (MINEDUC) and Rwanda Education Board (REB) that is funded by the British High Commission-Kigali as part of its Learning For All programme in Rwanda.

The programme is focused on improving learning outcomes at P1 to P5 in English and Mathematics. This is intended to improve the pupils’ learning achievement in higher grades, thereby increasing equitable access to primary and secondary education in Rwanda.

The programme is built on three foundations to ensure long term, sustainable impact: Teacher development, leadership for learning and system strengthening. Each Foundation has a focus on inclusive education practices for pupils with Special Education Needs to ensure no child is left behind.

The Programme is implemented by a consortium of organizations; Education Development Trust (lead), British Council, and VSO in all 30 Districts of Rwanda.
BLF began in July 2017 and will run until September 2023.

The Project implementation Lead is responsible for strategic development, implementation and successful delivery of the Building Learning Foundations (BLF) Project in Rwanda in line with the donor (BHC/EDT) and VSO standards through our unique Volunteering for Development Approach in order to optimize and contribute to its vision of a fairer world for everyone.
