Nairobi, Kenya
 
Fixed Term Position to January 31st 2014
 
GEMS Education Solutions is a division of GEMS Education, an established education provider with over 50 years of experience. 

We harness the insights and expertise gained from the largest network of international schools worldwide to improve standards in public education provision globally.

Our team comprises leading experts in education reform, curriculum development, teaching and learning practices as well as program design and evaluation.

The Backround and Role
 
Education innovations in the non-state sector are rapidly emerging in low and middle income countries. 

While a handful of innovations capture global attention, there is very little information on the scale, scope, and impact of the numerous organisations and social enterprises that make up the non-state sector in education.

To address this information gap, the Results for Development Institute (R4D) will launch the Center for Education Innovations (CEI). CEI aims to increase access to quality education for the poor by identifying, analyzing, and connecting non-state education innovations.

GEMS Education Solutions will serve as CEIs in-country representative in East Africa, helping to raise CEI’s profile and cultivate a network of CEI stakeholders (including program implementers, policy makers, researchers, and funders).
 
The Events Manager will support a research project, designed to identify, analyze, and connect non-state education programs/innovations in East Africa.
