The Education Alliance (TEA) is a non-profit organization registered in India to catalyze quality transformations in the public-school system through strategic partnership support. TEA aims to build an ecosystem in which governments can strategically partner with mission-oriented non-profit educational organizations to deliver high-quality education. Our goal is to empower government schools to create the next generation of leaders by transforming the quality of education offered in these schools. High-quality education for every child in India would call for a system that is accountable, collaborative, and equitable.
TEA sets up a Project Management Unit (PMU) to support the state education departments to partner more strategically with non-state actors and to design and deliver programs with the objective of building governments’ own capacity to sustain these initiatives post the exit of external partners. TEA currently has ongoing programs in Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Tripura and Madhya Pradesh.
The current opportunity involves working with the Tamil Nadu School Education Department on a System Reform project in Chennai. It is an exciting opportunity to work on 15 priority areas identified by the state. You will be part of a team that will oversee the implementation of visionary projects aimed at transforming public education in Tamil Nadu. TEA will support the government through a six-person team (1 Program Lead, 1 Senior Manager and 5 Project Managers) to deliver on their commitments to the State.
TEA and the Commissioner of School Education (CoSE) will both participate in the hiring process of individuals for the TEA team who will work closely with the state of TN for the education reform process being carried out in Tamil Nadu. The consultants will however be full-time employees of TEA.
The TEA employees will be based out of Chennai for the duration of the project (a minimum of 3 years starting from July 2021 until planned exit from State). During this period, they will be expected to connect with the central TEA team based in Delhi on a fortnightly basis.
