Maldives - The First and Second Education and Training Projects (Inglês)

This performance assessment report rates two projects in the Maldives: The Education and Training Project. For both projects, the project outcome is rated highly satisfactory. Institutional development is rated substantial, and project sustainability is likely. World Bank performance is rated satisfactory, and Borrower performance is rated highly satisfactory. A number of lessons were confirmed by these experiences. Although oft-repeated, it remains a truism that government commitment is critical for success. Projects often have components involving multiple ministries, but these can be successfully implemented when there is a strong stakeholder commitment to reform and when there is political and administrative commitment to setting and achieving high-quality standards. Second, beside academic qualifications, criteria for awarding fellowships should include work experience and activities indicating leadership ability. Third, while using well-trained and dedicated teachers as supervisors may significantly promote high achievement, it takes them out of the classroom and may undermine the purpose. Fourth, suitable incentives are needed to create a pool of qualified and effective teachers. Fifth, fellowship programs need components of cost recovery, clear prioritizing of local needs, and clear selection criteria to raise the population's confidence level regarding the impartiality of selections made. Sixth, training abroad may be more economical and efficient.
