Special Needs Education Programme (SNEP) Junior Officer

Job Title: Special Needs Education Programme (SNEP) Junior Officer

Reports to: SNEP Senior Officer


Saigonchildren is a UK registered charity working exclusively in Vietnam, our mission is to remove barriers to education in Vietnam.

Education is the most lasting and effective way we can help children and their families to escape from the cycle of poverty. It represents an investment in the children and in the future of Vietnam.

Everything we do helps children and young people learn and stay in education for longer, significantly improving life for themselves and their families through greater earnings and improved security.

We do that through our four main programmes: school building, scholarships, vocational support, and special needs education. Each day tens of thousands of children go to study in a public school built by saigonchildren - from the far south to the far north of Vietnam.

We also award educational and vocational training scholarships to children for whom family poverty would otherwise prevent them from continuing in education.

We also run Vietnam's leading autism education initiative and support many more special needs education projects for children with challenges including cerebral palsy, sight loss, and congenital birth defects.

Join a team that is creative and always seeking to find innovative solutions to support many more children in need.
