(MENAFN- Qatar News Agency) Republic of Kosovo and the World Bank have signed the Letters of Agreements for the US$11 million credit for the Kosovo Education System Improvement Project that aims at strengthening selected systems that contribute to quality, accountability, and efficiency improvements in education in the Republic of Kosovo.
The Education System Improvement Project will support the Government's education sector reform strategy and agenda. More specifically, the project aims at strengthening planning, financial management, and evaluation capacities at different levels of the education sector, including the national, the municipal and the school and university level, as well as to enhance and modernize the systems and practices of data management and analysis in the education sector.
It also aims at supporting and institutionalizing the teacher career system, facilitating the use of international best practices in student assessment and evaluation, and enhancing the capacities and responsiveness of tertiary education institutions to the labor market.
As the project focuses at the system level, the project benefits everyone, across all levels, in the education system. In particular, a subcomponent of School Development Grants will support schools in poorer rural areas, covering approximately 45,000 students (around 20 percent of all primary schools).
Indirect beneficiaries for this subcomponent will also include school teachers, administrators, and other staff employed in those schools. Another subcomponent envisions support for the implementation of the teacher licensing and performance assessment, which would directly affect about 25,000 teachers in pre-university education.
The project is to be implemented over a period of four years by the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology of the Republic of Kosovo. It will be fully financed by a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) of the World Bank Group.
