Detailed description of project Back

The Education Sector Development Program (ESDP) has been introduced in Ethiopia in the context of the deterioration of the whole social and educational situation after long years of internal and external conflicts in Ethiopia and its region. Within the Ethiopian PRSP, the education sector is one of the main priorities for the overall development of the country, as well as in terms of poverty reduction.

A task force on the quality and effectiveness of teacher education resulted in a TDP with three sub-programs:

  • Teacher education system overhaul;
  • Leadership and management program for school directors;
  • English language improvement program.

Belgium, through the DGDC, decided to support the TDP and so BTC became involved in the management and planning of this support. It implicates the participation in pooled funding with several other donors and with the National Authorities in the driver’s seat.

To enhance the understanding of the educational context of ESDP and TDP, the participation in the joint review mission education (planned between 13-29 October) will constitute complementary value, enabling the BTC to better define the modalities for follow-up of the TDP Programme.
