EduSpots is a small but rapidly growing education charity dedicated to enabling individuals in Ghana, and the UK, to become changemakers in the world.
We connect, train and equip individuals and communities who are passionate about education, and driven to make a difference, in order to achieve our vision of ‘a world in which every individual feels they can play a role in creating the world they want to see’.
Until last year we were known as ‘Reading Spots’, set up in 2016 to help communities in Ghana build and run local libraries and reading centres known as ‘Spots’. In 2018 we won the Times Educational Supplement’s (TES) ‘International Award’ for the best UK international education project.
By 2019, with a network of 40 thriving ‘Spots’ across Ghana, it was becoming clear that these spaces were developing into wider education places and not just ‘reading’ spots. This combined with the development of our ‘Changemaker’ programmes and the birth of our online courses, it felt the right time for a change of name.
We are excited by our future.
Who we are looking for?
As we move into this exciting new phase for the Charity, we are looking to strengthen our Board with the appointment of two new Trustees to the team. We are particularly looking for people who can bring skills and expertise in any of the following areas:
- UK or international education
- Impact measurement and / or project evaluation
- Organisational or strategic management
We are a hands-on Board, and whilst we only formally meet four times a year, we are looking for energetic and enthusiastic people who are able to offer up to one day per month to support the Charity and its work.
If you are motivated by our ethos, committed to bringing about positive change and have the skills and experience we need, we would love to hear from you. For further information and to apply please visit www.eduspots.org or contact Cat Davison, Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
