Jordan - Strengthening Accountability for Improved Education Services in Jordan Project (English)

The development objective of the Strengthening Accountability for Improved Education Services in Jordan Project for Jordan is to improve governance of the education sector through the establishment of an accountability and quality assurance mechanism that will incentivize stakeholders in the system to improve learning in Jordan’s public schools. The additional financing will support following components: (i) establishment of the education quality and accountability unit (EQAU) through the acquisition of goods, including, inter alia: (a) office equipment; and (b) information technology hardware and software; (ii) capacity building for the EQAU will involve the training of 80-100 professionals who will carry out the professional tasks of the unit; (iii) knowledge exchange will also help establish direct international links and network the ministry and the EQAU to appropriate international bodies (for example, the standing international conference of inspectorates (SICI) and Consortium of Institutions for Development and Research in Education in Europe (CIDREE); (iv) communications for advocacy and awareness will build awareness and promote the goals of the reform to stakeholders throughout the process, through both high level meetings and workshops for ministry staff at all levels; and (v) project audit.
