REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL- (RFP–S&L-2016–9126625)
For Local and International Company only
1. Topic: UNICEF Ethiopia is seeking Request for Proposals (RFP) form a registered firm/ Company/ Organization to- Conduct Assessment for Learning (AfL) system and roll out of AfL program to three new regions. (For a period of 21 months)
The Ministry of Education embarked on improving quality of general education through its General Education Quality Improvement Program (GEQIP I: 2008 and GEQIP II: 2012). Yet, improving and ensuring the quality and efficiency of education at all levels remains an important priority. Critical analysis of the curriculum reform efforts in the various components of the Ethiopian education system reveals incompatibility, particularly among the reforms in the areas of the school curriculum and assessments. The 2014 joint review mission by education technical working group drawn from MoE and donors has identified that learning assessment has yet to be intertwined with the existing curriculum practices.
ESDP V also stipulates that the new curriculum revisions were well received, but a common complaint among students, teachers and higher officials was a lack of linkage between assessment, examinations and curriculum. In particular, the MoE has put in place a policy of undertaking continuous assessment as means of measuring learner’s progress at all levels of the education system. However, there is a widespread flaw among teachers and educational practitioners in translating the policy into action.
More details of the requirements for this bid can be found in the RFP.
