About Teach For Uganda

At Teach For Uganda (TFU), we believe that every child in Uganda regardless of their socioeconomic background deserves an opportunity of an excellent education. Our mission is to build a movement of diverse and capable leaders who will work to end education inequity in our country. We recruit, train and place top university graduates and young professionals in high need primary schools across Uganda to serve as full-time teachers committed to transforming the education outcomes of less-privileged children through significantly improving their achievements and aspirations in a 2-year teaching fellowship.

As a young, non-profit organization working towards achieving an ambitious goal in a challenging environment, we are looking for an exceptional individual who embodies our core values, is selfdriven, honest, a strategic thinker, detail oriented and has a knack for numbers to add to our dynamic staff and help fulfill our mission.

Position overview

The leadership Development team is responsible for the training and support of Teach For Uganda Fellows both before and during their fellowship in order to ensure Fellows’ growth and impact as leaders both in the classroom (as measured by student achievement) and beyond.

Leadership Development Officers (LDOs) play a fundamental role in TFU’s work, as they are directly in charge of delivering pedagogical and leadership support to Fellows. They serve as coaches for a group of 20 Fellows, regularly monitoring both their teaching practice and leadership growth through observation and coaching cycles, weekly check-ins, and reflections. At the first and primary point of contact between Fellows and the organization, they are also responsible for cultivating strong and productive relationships and a positive team culture.

Leadership Development Officers also work with school leaders, teachers, parents, district leaders and development partners within their area of operation to build effective community partnerships
