Detailed description of project Back
In 2019, the Department of Education (DepEd), with support from UNICEF and UNESCO-IIEP conducted a basic education sector analysis in order to develop Basic Education Master Plan 2030. However, the landscape of the sector dramatically changed by two events. The first is the poor performance of the Philippines in the PISA 2019: the Philippines placed the last in Reading, and the second from the last in Science and Mathematics. The second is the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to these challenges, DepEd identified key policy agenda for quality learning in “Sulong Edukalidad,” and recently developed a Learning Continuity Plan for COVID-19 response. The draft Basic Education Sector Analysis (BESA) in 2019 needs to be updated and a medium-term plan, Basic Education Development Plan 2021-2025 (BEDP 2025) needs to be developed to detail out the implementation of urgent activities, financing plan and collaboration mechanisms.
The objective of the consultant’s work is to provide technical support to DepEd and strengthen its capacity to prepare a credible education sector plan (BEDP 2025) by updating draft BESA and developing a feasible plan of actions, which addresses key issues impeding inclusive and equitable quality education for all in the context of the current global COVID-19 pandemic. The process will build on the technical support provided by UNICEF to build the capacity of DepEd on sector analysis and strategic planning.
