Contract: One year fixed term contract, renewable subject to availability of funds. Secondment applications from external applications will be considered.

About us

Our mission is to get preschool children in rural Africa school-ready. At present over 250 million children worldwide fail to receive the education and care they need in their early years which means they are less likely to do well in school, find gainful employment, and are at greater risk of early marriage, early parenthood and even criminality. Current approaches to solving this crisis are not proving effective or scalable in lower middle income countries.

That’s where Lively Minds comes in. We have developed an award-winning Early Childhood Development programme that has been proven to get pre-schoolers in hard-to-reach communities school-ready, so they have a greater chance of succeeding in school and in life. The programme provides marginalised Mothers with a parenting course that empowers them to run educational Play Schemes for pre-schoolers and to provide better home-based care, using cheap local resources. The programme is delivered through government partners, is cheap and highly scalable. It genuinely has the potential to play a transformative role in ending the global ECD crisis.

Over the past few years the Lively Minds programme has been delivered in over 350 communities in rural Ghana and Uganda reaching over 50,000 children. During COVID we launched a radio programme for parents and this is now reaching over 2million households each week. We are extremely proud that the Government of Ghana have now adopted the programme and we have a ground-breaking partnership with them to support them to institutionalise it, fund it and to scale it to over 4000 communities reaching over 1million children. We see this partnership as the test case that will provide the blueprint to take the programme to scale in Uganda and elsewhere within the next 5 years.

We’re a lively ambitious organisation, determined to have a major positive impact on the world. We work hard, at a fast pace, in a challenging environment. We expect everyone to give their best to achieve the best possible results. Our work is demanding but provides plenty of opportunity for innovation, responsibility, growth, collaboration, creativity and fun. We want all staff to be happy, fulfilled and to feel appreciated and valued in their work.

To find out more about our programme, please visit www.livelyminds.org.

About the role

In order to achieve our scale goals, we need to build high performing teams, both in our government partners and in our staff, to deliver the programme to quality standards at scale. In addition, the programme is delivered using a training of trainer’s approach, with Lively Minds training local government teams, who in turn train community-based trainers. It is therefore essential that the cascade is robust at every level to minimise dilution.

We are recruiting a Global Learning and Development Coordinator, who will have a unique position in the organisation, working in both our HR, L&D and our Content team. Working towards the external L&D strategy you will find creative ways to build the capacity and motivation of Government partners, as well as ways to ensure all training activities are cascaded well. You will also contribute to our internal L&D strategy which focuses on building the skills of our team to empower and coach local government, and creating a high performance culture.

We work to ensure that children in highly deprived communities in Ghana and Uganda receive quality education and care in their early years- the age that makes such a big difference to their future development. We do this by training and empowering  uneducated Mothers to run educational Play Schemes that improve the lives and life-chances of children, the Mothers and the wider community.

We do not provide aid. We believe that people can only break the cycle of poverty if they are given the information, skills, and confidence to make changes themselves. The solutions don’t need to be complicated or expensive. We find creative, low-cost and practical ways, using local resources, to bring about lasting change.
