2. Background Information

2.1. About Education Sector Program Implementation Grant (ESPIG)

The Global Partnership for Education (GPE)-funded Education Sector Program Implementation Grant (ESPIG) is aligned with the priorities of the Federal Government of Somalia’s Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP 2018-2020). The overall objective is to increase access to quality education for more than 50,000 out-of-school children; enhance the quality of primary education; and improve the capacity of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Higher Education (MOECHE) at Federal/Member States to regulate and manage the education sector. The Federal Government of Somalia Ministry of Education, Culture and Higher Education (MoECHE) is implementing the grant in collaboration with the Federal Member States Ministries of Education in Jubaland State, South West State, Galmudug State, Hirshabelle State and Benadir regional administration with CARE as the grant agent and Concern Worldwide as sub-contractor.

The main objective of the ESPIG is to improve equitable access to and quality of education outcomes for all Somali primary school children through strengthened system capacity to design evidence-driven Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP) reforms, and collaborate effectively with partners in their implementation. ESPIG was envisioned to maximize the potential of development investments in education in Somalia through the combination of four key principles:

  • Use of evidence-based approaches to address key gaps in access, learning and retention, and inform tailored efforts to reach marginalized groups;
  • Creation of conditions to implement solutions that address the intersection of multiple barriers to access, retention and learning;
  • Generation of synergies with privately managed schools/networks, development actors and the private sector to ensure complementarity of efforts and leverage existing capacity/ investment;
  • Capacity building of federal, state, regional and district-level actors for a cohesive, efficient and dynamic approach to the design and implementation of solutions.

The program’s five components are described below:

  • Equitable access to quality education will increase through changes in three intermediate outcomes: Increased access to education for out of school children; strengthened capacity of community education committees; and community actions towards improved school safety.
  • Enhanced quality of education, leading to grade-appropriate improved learning outcomes, will be achieved through the following intermediate outcomes: effective monitoring of teacher education and management policy, strengthened and harmonized efforts in teacher pre-service training; improved access to teaching and learning materials; and a strengthened assessment framework.
  • Enhanced system capacity to regulate and manage the education sector will emerge from the combination of the following intermediate outcomes: (i) strengthening regulatory and monitoring system for private, community and government schools and (ii) improved capacity of education officers for planning, budgeting, policy implementation, coordination and progress tracking.
  • Build a strong framework for program monitoring, accountability and communication, generating evidence to track progress, inform adaptive management and support planning and management processes.
  • Effective and efficient program management, embedded within government systems at local level and leveraging the grant agent’s capacity and experience in country and globally

2.2. Program beneficiaries

Direct program beneficiaries includes: (i) about 50,000 out-of-school poor or marginalized primary children who will benefit from school inclusion grants; (ii) about 600 Community Education Committees who will benefit from training to improve inclusion, security and learning at their schools; (iii) 6,570 teachers who will benefit from teaching guides associated to the new curriculum; (iv) 240 primary pre-service student teachers who will benefit from new teacher training institutes; (v) 2,000 teachers benefitting from tailored in-service teacher training; (vi) 297,168 grade 1-8 pupils who will receive textbooks linked to the new curriculum; (vii) 150 education officers will benefit from professional development to improve skills in planning, coordination and monitoring.

3. Objective of the Final Evaluation

The Education Sector Program Implementation Grant (ESPIG) is seeking to procure the services of a consultancy company to conduct a final evaluation to assess the extent to which the stated objectives and ESPIG components were achieved (or not) in the project i.e. the extent to which the expected results of the ESPIG intervention have been achieved. The evaluation should generate relevant findings, lessons learned and recommendations to guide and inform on the best practices and strategies/approaches for improving other future phases and education programs. The final evaluation will have full participation of the project staff and key stakeholders.

3.1 Specific Objectives of the Final Evaluation

The consultant will critically evaluate the outputs and outcomes achieved under each component and how those have influenced the situation of target groups and beneficiaries. This will require critical examination of the individual activities to understand their contribution towards achievement of the results. The consultant is expected to reference changes in target groups, final beneficiaries and school conditions at the end of the project vis a vis the endline and baseline. The specific objective of the evaluation is to: “evaluate the outputs and outcomes achieved under each component and the project’s overall relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, validity of design, sustainability, factors affecting performance, alternative strategies and its strengths and weaknesses.
