Project / Programme Title
Basic Education Programme
Brief Project Description
The Basic Education programme will be implemented by the Ministry of Education and Culture and its provincial and district directorates, within the framework of the Education SWAp. The programme will contribute to the progressive attainment of the Millennium Development Goals targets through supporting the development of national and local capacities for providing primary school age children with increased access to quality education. It will address the poor quality of primary education, focusing on girls and OVC, and support the scale up of HIV/AIDS prevention in schools. The programme consists of two complementary components. Component 1: Education Policy and Capacity Development for Planning and Knowledge Management. This component will support the incorporation of child-friendly, gender sensitive and responsive school approaches in national plans and budgets, focusing on girls and the most vulnerable children in primary schools. It will focus on documenting lessons learned on the process, cost-effectiveness, sustainability and impact of the child-friendly schools initiative and the OVC Direct Budget Support to School pilot initiative. The lessons of these models will be used to advocate and leverage resources for national scale-up. This component will also support the provision of technical assistance to government in key areas identified by the Ministry of Education and Culture, including planning, monitoring and evaluation. The key expected results under this component are: - Most disadvantaged provinces, districts, and schools are prioritised in national plans, budgets and capacity development programmes; - Strengthened capacity of the Ministry of Education and Culture (MEC) & Civil Society to systematically use knowledge, research and M&E on disparities, especially gender related; - Basic comprehensive capacity and professional development package is included in the comprehensive human resources management strategy of MEC (operationalising the PEEC) and reaches all districts by 2009; - By 2009, the national pre-service teacher training curriculum reflects lessons learned from the CFS model and the in-service pedagogical training package; and - Education contingency plans developed, budgeted, and continuously updated to ensure effective response in emergencies. Component 2: Implementation of Quality Improvement Initiatives. This component will support the implementation of an integrated multi-sectoral programme under the Child Friendly Schools initiative in seven districts in seven provinces in order to raise enrolments and completion rates in all of the primary schools in each district. Within the framework of this initiative, support will be provided to improve the school environment through the provision of water and sanitation facilities and hygiene education programmes, while extracurricular life skills programmes in primary schools for children and young people aged 10-14 will ensure that they have the correct information, attitudes and relevant skills to reduce risk of and vulnerability to HIV/AIDS. In line with the decentralisation policy of national development, it will support district planners with skills to effectively plan to enrol all children in their districts. This component will also focus on supporting the capacity and professional development of teachers, School and ZIP directors and School Council members through an improved comprehensive package of training and materials. The key expected results under this component are: - All District Plans in the 7 model districts incorporate the CFS model; - All teachers, school and ZIP directors and School Council members in all primary schools in the 7 model districts are skilled in the CFS approach; - 80 per cent of primary schools in the 7 model districts have improved water, sanitation and hygiene facilities as well as hygiene education programmes; - 80 per cent of primary schools in the 7 model districts implement a minimum package of school health interventions (including TT immunisation, de-worming, teacher training on health education, health and nutrition education and iodized salt promotion); - All families / communities in the 7 districts participate in the CFS approach to education development and are enabled to send their children, including orphaned and the most vulnerable children, to primary school through awareness of reduction of costs and other barriers to schooling; - A partnership framework for MEC and Civil Society Organisations to implement extracurricular life skills programmes in primary schools is developed; and - PLWHA School Awareness extra-curricular programme for children aged 10 to 14 (as part of the National Prevention package) is implemented in all of the primary schools in selected districts nationally.
