About Ark’s Education Partnerships Group
Education systems the world over are failing to give disadvantaged children the learning opportunities and outcomes they need to succeed in life. Ark, a nonprofit network of publically-funded academy schools in the UK, was launched in 2006 to address this challenge by transforming failing public schools into successful, government-funded academy schools serving disadvantaged children across the country.
The Education Partnerships Group (EPG) is a non-profit consulting team set up within Ark in 2014 to help governments in low – and middle-income countries deliver quality education to all children. EPG focuses on improving services and accountability in public education systems that operate in mixed market models that include both state and non-state school providers. EPG provides policy advice, analytic and technical services, and design and implementation support to national and sub-national governments, drawing on evidence, operational research, and evaluation to inform domestic and global policy, practice, and financing. EPG’s support to countries also draws on Ark’s own experience in running high quality academies in the UK.
EPG has active and growing public-private partnership and school accountability engagements in South Africa, Uganda, Ghana, the Ivory Coast, and India, and is growing a pipeline of opportunities in other countries in Africa and Asia.
Ark EPG is looking for high quality candidates with entrepreneurial drive, deep experience, and a proven track record of working with government counterparts in education policy areas, using a high degree of technical knowledge and evidence.
Essential requirements for the candidate are:
