The Sabre Trust is a partnership between two independent but linked charities, registered in the UK with the Charity Commission and in Ghana with the Department of Social Welfare. We work in southern Ghana to improve the futures of poor and marginalised children.
Through ten years of grassroots work in rural schools and a long term relationship with the Ghana Education Service, the kindergarten sector has emerged as our priority intervention area. Kindergarten represents the start of formal education for 4 and 5 year old children, and the sector faces a number of challenges including poor learning environments and weak teacher capacity. Our Brighter Futures Programme provides an innovative and carefully considered response to these challenges, delivered through Building Better Schools and providing Transformational Teacher Training.
Our mission is to give young Ghanaians the best possible start to their education, enabling them to achieve their full academic potential and contribute to Ghana’s future economic development.
Our vision is an education system where all children in Ghana are engaged in active and play-based learning, which equips them with the skills and knowledge they need to progress through primary and junior high school and complete their basic education. This will help to bring about a critical shift in mind-set amongst teachers and pupils at all levels of the Ghana education system.
Job Title: Training Support Officers (2)

Remuneration: GBP (£) 354 gross per month
Reporting to: Education Project Manager
Main Role / Purpose
The Sabre Trust is a development organisation working in close collaboration with the local education authorities in the Central and Western Regions to support the implementation of the Ghana Education Service’s plans to scale up quality kindergarten education nationwide. As the Fast-track Transformational Teacher Training (FTTT) programme gains greater recognition in the context of the Government’s plans to scale up quality kindergarten in Ghana, the Training Support Officer (TSO) has a significant role to play.
The successful candidate will spend the first 3-6 months supporting every aspect of the FTTT programme.
This will provide the TSO with the opportunity to learn about Sabre Trust and the FTTT programme through observation, participation, and support from his/her colleagues. This period will be followed by a performance and salary review, at which point the FTTT management and TSO will decide on a more specific job description based on the TSO’s strengths and weaknesses. We consider this to be an appropriate method to select outstanding, versatile candidates with the right attitude to succeed with Sabre Trust. We have a strong track record of identifying talent, and providing such individuals with an excellent foundation for their personal and professional development
