For every child, learning
Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) wishes to
commission an analysis of its education sector to inform subsequent
development of a new Education Sector Development Plan 2021/22-2025/26.
The current Education Sector Development Plan (ESDP) for Tanzania
covered five years 2016/17 – 2020/21. The new sector plan and the
analysis that underpins it must comply with the relevant national policy
documents and international such as Global Partnership for Education
The ESDP needs to build from a solid Education
Sector Analysis (ESA) providing data and assessments that form the
information base on which strategies and programmes are developed. The
last ESA was done in 2015 and formed the basis for the current ESDP.
This ESA is now outdated and a new one needs to be commissioned. The
Government of Tanzania will lead this exercise but will need to be
supported by a team providing technical inputs and coordination.
How can you make a difference?
objective of the Education Sector Analysis is to provide a description
of the situation of the education system based on data and indicators,
as well as of successes, weaknesses and difficulties encountered for
five years implementation of ESDP II. Also, it will provide strategic
recommendations for the next ESDP. The proposed recommendations need to
be in line with ruling part Manifesto 2020 – 2025, the National
Five-Year Development Plan III (FYDPIII) and other relevance policy
MAIN OBJECTIVES, DELIVERABLES AND TIME FRAME
scope of work of the consultancy includes support to the
MOEST-appointed Core Technical Team (CTT), who will guide the Education
Sector Analysis. An indicative set of activities and processes is
provided, though candidate consultants are encouraged to propose
alternative approaches as relevant.
A very detailed Education
Sector Analysis was undertaken in 2015, and many of the conclusions
remain valid. There is a need to update the data and the information
related to enrolments, teachers and financing. The statistical data and
reports produced by MoEST as well as NBS will be an invaluable source of
This work will be conducted in three phases:
First Phase: An inception phase, including desk review, inception
meetings with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and key
stakeholders in Tanzania, and other tasks as relevant, will result in a
report that outlines the proposed plan, process and timeline (detailing
in-country inputs/TA) for the completion of the Education Sector
▪ Second Phase: The Education Sector Analysis will
provide an evidence-based and robust diagnosis of the existing education
outcomes, delivery, and functionality of the education sector, framed
within the context of the national development plans, budgets and
domestic and international commitments. The analysis should conclude
with a set of recommendations and articulate a strategic vision for the
development of Education Sector Strategic Plan.
▪ Third Phase:
The structure of the sector analysis will be defined early and will be
informed by GPE Methodological Guidelines for Education Sector Analysis,
the FYDPIII and current development plans that sit under it, and the
needs of Tanzania as identified by the CTT. To foster buy-in, all
education sector stakeholders should be consulted along the way.
sector analysis is expected to include detailed, descriptive and
diagnostic analyses of context; policy; financing; system performance;
and system capacity.
