Over the past decade, Indonesia has substantially increased its spending on education and now many more millions of children are in school. There is a significant void in knowledge about what teachers in Indonesia are teaching in the classroom, what the primary constraints they face are, and how teaching quality can be more efficiently and effectively improved. The Government of Australia (GOA), through the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), is seeking to assist the Government of Indonesia (GOI) to fill this void by establishing Innovation for Indonesia?s School Children (INOVASI).
INOVASI is an ambitious four-year (with the possibility of an extension for another four), AUD 49 million program. It will collaborate closely with the GOI at the district, provincial and national level to develop and implement action-oriented research and pilots to answer the broad question: What works to improve student learning outcomes in Indonesia. It will focus on three sub-topics of investigation: the quality of teaching in the classroom, the quality of support for teachers, and learning for all.
INOVASI is managed by Palladium on behalf of DFAT, and formally started on 18 January 2016.
Purpose of the Position: The Communications Specialist will provide strategic support and oversight to communications planning around core INOVASI program activities and initiatives. The role will support the implementation of a communications strategy that seeks to effectively communicate the findings of INOVASI and actively raise awareness and understanding of how education in Indonesia can be improved in ways that are sustainable and affordable.
