Field Research Officer – War Child UK

Background
WCUK is currently implementing two main research studies in which the Field Research Officer would assist. The first one is part of the Can’t Wait to Learn Can’t Wait to Learn (CWtL) project. CWtL proposes new (cost-) effective solutions to the urgent challenges facing education for children in emergencies. By utilising innovative technological solutions with a focus on serious gaming, CWtL has ambitions to increase the number of children with access to quality education in mathematics and literacy in areas affected by conflict in Africa and the Middle East, specifically Jordan. Developing fresh, interactive materials based on the national curricula, and creating effective partnership structures to distribute these, creates new opportunities for making education accessible to those children who have been excluded from education. Thus, increasing children’s resilience and thereby, preparing them for a positive future. WCUK seeks to measure the impact of the CWtL intervention on children in Zarqa.
