Posted 8 months ago

The vacancies below are vacancies at our partner in Papua, teacher training college STKIP Kristen Wamena. The school is headed by local management. Over the years several expats have worked at the school.

Vacancies STKIP Kristen Wamena High School

Wamena, located in the Papuan highlands, has a pleasant climate, is pollution-free and has beautiful scenery. The beauty of the highlands stands in stark contrast with the educational situation in the area. The state of education in Wamena, especially outside the city, is of great concern. Based on our experience, high school graduates who apply to our college usually have a level equivalent to elementary school. For example, most students cannot distinguish between 8-5=3 and 5-8= -3. Teachers are often absent, students are victims of power abuse, parents are hardly involved in the education of their children, and teachers lack knowledge and skills to teach.

Building education in Papua requires teachers with a heart to serve and the right capabilities. STKIP Kristen Wamena is a teacher training college whose goal is to train professional teachers who put their Christian faith into practice. To strengthen our team, we are looking for motivated professionals with a desire to serve.
