Applications are now open for the Teach For Bangladesh Fellowship program, the fellowship is a leadership development program for outstanding university graduates and young professionals who are looking for a personal and professional challenge while working to end educational inequity in Bangladesh.
Fellows work full-time for two years as teachers in low-income primary schools across Dhaka city. They also take weekly courses to complete a diploma in Educational Leadership, Planning, and Management through the BRAC Institute of Educational Development, which strengthens their understanding of the landscape of education in the country.
The Teach For Bangladesh Fellowship is your opportunity to play a part in helping your country overcome one of its greatest challenges. As a full-time teacher, you will affect the lives of each and every one of your students. You will join an international network of Fellows who are leading this global movement, and be among the special few who are pioneering the movement in Bangladesh. The Fellowship presents an intense, difficult, yet highly rewarding challenge which will help you develop and hone leadership, organization, and communication skills – skills that will accelerate your growth in any career you subsequently choose to pursue.
The Fellowship is designed to prepare you to excel in any field you choose, as the skills that Fellows will develop are all transferrable.The level of challenge involved in completing the two year Fellowship makes it as, if not more effective in comparison to spending an equal amount of time in entry-level positions in most sectors.
