The USAID Partnership for Education: Learning (Learning) activity is a nine-year, $91.7 million activity aligned with USAID’s global goal of “all children reading” that supports Ghana’s Ministry of Education (MoE), Ghana Education Service (GES), and affiliated institutions to improve reading performance for early grade pupils. Learning, implemented by FHI 360, has worked to achieve this aim through four programs: the Early Grade Reading Program (EGRP), the Transition to English (T2E) program, the National Reading Radio Program (NRRP) and the T2E Plus program.
The T2E Plus Component Two will focus on resuming the T2E program to assist early grade readers in the transfer of reading skills from their designated local language to reading in English, specifically focusing on, a) improving students’ skills in Listening Comprehension, Letter Sound Identification, Non-Word Fluency, Oral Reading Fluency and Reading Comprehension, among others to be identified by FHI 360, b) building on the prior EGRP intervention and the earlier investments in transitioning students from their mother tongue to English, and c) scaling up the T2E’s reach to over 5,000 non-GALOP schools across all 16 regions.
The Communications Officer’s primary responsibility will be to support the Communications and Publications Specialist on all Learning’s T2E Plus implementation of activities.
