About the job Program Manager at Teach For Viet Nam
REPORT TO: Head of Program
Location: Quang Nam and Dong Thap
Teach For Viet Nam (TFV) is a young and dynamic organization with the vision that all children in Vietnam will attain an excellent education. We aim to achieve our vision through recruiting and developing a nationwide network of pioneering educators (fellows), who teach and lead with commitment to equity and quality education for all children in Vietnam. During the two years, fellows teach in high need schools and work with underprivileged students and communities. Fellows gain deep local understanding, skills, and expertise to make a positive impact on students, teachers, parents, and communities. They also develop transferable skills and gain unique experiences that set them up to be leaders in education. TFV is in its seventh year of operation and currently placing 17 fellows in Quang Nam and Dong Thap. We aim to have 60 fellows and expand into three regions in the 2024 academic year.
The Program team is responsible for the training and support of Teach For Viet Nam Fellows both before, i.e. preservice training, 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. Program Managers at Teach For Viet Nam play a central role in our work, as they are directly in charge of delivering support for Fellows in terms of operation at school and leadership. They serve as leadership coaches for a group of 10-15 Fellows in a specific location, regularly monitoring both community practice and leadership growth through observation-and-coaching cycles, regular check- ins, learning circles and reflection. Program Managers are responsible to train and coach fellows on personal and leadership development. They work with the Curriculum Leader and other teams to ensure fellows deliver the required student and community outcomes. As 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.
