CV - Karim Khan

You need an account to view this information.

I am Karim Khan and I am from Hunza, Gilgit Baltistan. I have completed masters in sociology from Karachi University in 2000. In 2005 I acquired a professional degree in Education from Aga Khan University Institute for Educational Development (AKU-IED) Karachi. 
I started the journey of my professional career in a community-based school in Karachi as a social studies teacher in 2002 and continued serving in the institution till April 2008. It was during my service in the school when I availed the opportunity of completing Master of Education (M.Ed.) for which I had to take two years’  break from my routine activities in the school to attend classes regularly at AKU-IED.  
In 2008 I arrived Gilgit, my home town, and joined a UNICEF funded program called Child Friendly School Project or shortly know as CFS project. It was a joint venture of UNICEF, Government Educational Department Gilgit Baltistan and Professional Development Center North, a unit of Aga Khan University Karachi with an aim to improve access, quality and governance in government primary girls schools.
My responsibilities in the project was to form parents representative committees and conduct workshops for them over their role as a bridge between the school administration and parents in order to resolve the issues faced by the schools. Furthermore, they were sensitized as to how they could play their effective role in improving grades of children as well as their better socialization by working closely with their parents and keeping a close eye on their activities. As a community mobilizer it was also in my responsibility to make follow ups of workshops by visiting schools lying in far flung areas and writing detailed reports. I used to send these reports to my seniors whose feedback and encouragement helped me in great deal to improve my report writing skills.
In 2011 a similar yet a bigger opportunity with the same objectives and involving the same partners except UNICEF came in the form of an Australian funded program named Educational Development and Improvement Program (EDIP) and I was inducted as a Professional Development Teacher (PDT). This program was initiated in the six districts of Gilgit Baltistan at the same time and I was assigned to lead the four government schools of district Hunza. As an educationist, my role was to build the capacity of teachers, head teachers and district level administrative staff of government education department District Hunza.
This program was formally ended in 2015 with the achievement of their goals resulting in ending my role as well. As Professional Development Teacher, my role in this program was rigorous and challenging which ultimately provided me an opportunity to learn a lot from my seniors and colleagues. In 2015 I joined Aga Khan Education Service Pakistan as a School Head in one of their schools in Gilgit region. I resigned from this position in November 2018 since then I am in search of a job. I have the ability to work as a content writer to a desirable level.
