Foundation (trust)

A hardworking, dedicated and compassionate teaching staff is an essential component to the success of Barwaaqo University students.

Teachers will help build a school culture that puts the growth of the school and the students first, while finding a way around the challenges inherent in working in the developing world. Between the classroom, preparation, student groups, coaching sports teams, office hours, and other projects, teachers should expect 50-70 hours of work each week. With successful performance, significant upward mobility is possible for faculty members, especially those with experience in finance, marketing, IT and/or communications.

We are currently accepting applications for math and English teaching positions for August 2019. Barwaaqo University is a women’s-only boarding institution and at this time is only seeking female applicants.

Barwaaqo is more than just a job; becoming a successful member of the Barwaaqo community requires teachers to fully commit themselves to the improvement of the students and the school and completely immerse themselves in the Barwaaqo environment. For teachers, the school becomes the professional life, the social life, the physical outlet, and the source of personal growth. This level of dedication and immersion is not for everyone. As a new university in a developing county, Barwaaqo is a difficult environment and only those ready to dedicate themselves to the students and the school should proceed.
