PLANNING EDUCATION AND TRAINING POLICIES

IIEP-PÔLE DE DAKAR SUPPORTS AFRICAN COUNTRIES IN DEVELOPING SECTOR PLANS.

Using a participative capacity-development approach, this support leads to the revision of sector strategies, accompanied by a sector development plan and a costed operational action plan.

A sector plan provides a long-term perspective of a country’s education and training sector and includes a coherent body of strategies, designed to attain set policy goals. Planners use various tools to carry out the different stages in developing a sector plan:

  • Financial simulation models
  • Financial frameworks for education and training policy options
  • Strategic sector-planning documents
  • Costed and time-bound action plans

The costing of education policy options and the development of an action plan can focus on a system’s priority sub-sector or specific theme, at the government’s request.
