MCC's mission is to reduce poverty around the world through the promotion of sustainable economic growth based on the principle that aid is most effective when it strengthens good governance, economic freedom and investments in people. In July 2014, MCC and the government of the country of Georgia entered into a Compact to improve the quality and relevance of general education with particular emphasis on rural schools, English, Math, and Science and Technology education. MCC is in need of a Secondary Education Specialist with broad experience to help monitor the implementation of this program. 7. Overview: The Improving General Education Quality project is managed by Millennium Challenge Account-Georgia (MCA-Georgia) and consists of several activities that target areas where the Georgian education sector needs the most support: physical environment, secondary school teacher subject knowledge and pedagogical skills, school management capacity, continuous professional development systems and education assessments. These activities are: Training Educators for Excellence Activity - This activity will train up to 23,400 math, science, ICT, and English teachers in student-centered pedagogy, up to 2,000 school-based professional development coordinators to support adoption of new knowledge and good teaching practices, and up to 2,000 public school principals in instructional leadership and improved management. A detailed program design has been submitted to the Ministry of Education and Science (MoES), but an implementation and supervision strategy is still in development. The Teacher Professional Development Center (TPDC), a MoES agency, is the implementing entity for this activity. Compact funding will support capacity building for TPDC, the development and provision of training materials and equipment, and implementation of training courses. Education Assessment Support Activity - The National Assessment and Examination Center is the implementing entity and a direct beneficiary for this activity. The MCC investment is supporting NAEC to prepare and carry out six national assessments, including secondary school mathematics and selected sciences; participation in international PISA, TIMSS and TALIS; and to develop classroom assessments of student learning, with a focus on using the results for improving the quality of general education. This system will build upon current USAID work in classroom assessment tools for primary school teachers under USAID's G-PRIED project. Improved Learning Environment Infrastructure Activity - This MCC investment involves the full internal and external rehabilitation of up to 130 selected school facilities, utility upgrades, and provision of science laboratories to complement efforts to improve learning outcomes in Secondary Science fields.

Scope: MCC is seeking technical assistance from a Secondary Education Specialist with broad experience in teacher and principal professional development, continuous professional development systems, assessment, and improving learning environments to monitor the quality of MCA's Improving General Education Quality program implementation.
