Consultancy Opportunity

Technology Outreach Expert

Education in the Digital Age is an existential challenge for humanity. We must find the ingenuity, ideas and individuals to help us meet the challenges ahead in the 21st Century. But education isn’t working for global learners. National systems don’t prioritise global citizenship, character or skills. Most young people learn the wrong things in the wrong way – and 75 million children and young people aren’t in formal education at all.

Towards Global Learning Goals is a campaign led by diplomat Tom Fletcher to give learners the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and character to thrive in the Digital Age.

 

Tech Outreach Expert: The role

We’re looking for the keys to exponential innovation, in education and beyond. You will help the project team engage with and understand learning innovations, thinkers and influencers in the tech ecosystem. You’ll build a network of technology and other experts seeking to apply exponential technologies for humanity’s development. You’ll open up dialogues with world-leading projects, universities, and innovation incubators, and gather insight into how these organisations harness global networks and incentivise technology for social good.

Your findings will directly influence the findings and recommendations of the project. As part of your work, you’ll be building partnerships for a future TGLG programme with participation from global innovators in diverse disciplines. These in turn will become tools and coalitions, to help learners across the world to thrive in the 21st century.

This consultancy starts in early-mid January 2018, and involves a commitment of approximately 10 working days per month until March 2018, with potential for the role to become longer term in 2018  depending on funding and the quality of deliverables and outcomes. You’ll be joining a small, close team, brought together across continents in this innovative project, under the leadership of former UK Ambassador Tom Fletcher.

 

About you

You’re an entrepreneur, convenor, and/or tech analyst based in Silicon Valley or a similar innovation hub. You have a proven track record of tech sector analysis, networking and outreach, and you are able to work remotely, with minimal supervision, to agreed deadlines and indicators of quality. Fees will be commensurate with experience. Some travel to the US may be required.
