Detailed description of project Back

The education sector in Tunisia is at a crossroads between two strategic plans: a five-year plan ending in 2020 covering the five-year period 2016-2020 and a commitment to prepare a new plan for the five-year period 2021-2025. In fact, the preparatory work for the new strategic plan was started at the end of 2020 with the launch of a diagnostic and analytical study of the reality of the education system.

Thus, the development of the 2021-2025 Education Strategic Plan involves two key tasks: (i) Further developing, improving and finalizing the 2020 sectoral analysis; (ii) Development of the new strategic plan 2021-2025 using the diagnosis of the sectoral analysis.

The preparation of the strategic plan in the current context is also motivated by Tunisia’s accession to the Global Education Partnership (GPE) as an eligible country with a view to benefiting from multiplier financing, which is a new mode of financing.

The objectives of the mission are twofold but complementary:

  • Deepen the sectoral analysis;
  • Develop the Sectorial Strategic Plan.

Type of services provided

  • Review and improve the study (diagnostic and analytical study of the reality of the education system) in two directions: i) refresh and update; (ii) compliance with the guidelines and methodological standards of the GPE;
  • Prepare and develop the Strategic Plan 2021-2025 in accordance with the principles and good practices adopted in this field, including those issued by UNESCO and the EGP. Two basic principles will be identified and followed: (i) comply with the characteristics of a credible Education Sector Plan (PSE); (ii) comply with a gender-sensitive PSE.

Main staff provided:

  • Team leader (120 w/d);
