How can you make a difference?


Implementation of the Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP) 2019-2024 is due to end in June 2024. The strategic plan had nine priorities set to be achieved over a five-year period. The priorities include improving learning outcomes for all students, strengthening teacher professional development and the management, enhancing STEM education, utilizing information, communication, and technology (ICT) in education more effectively, improving school infrastructure, promoting research and development, and enhancing governance and accountability.

Over the last five years, significant progress has been achieved in the education sector in terms of access to education and improving quality. Over 200 new schools have been established and the number of classrooms increased from 59,032 in 2019 to 84,558 in 2022, reducing student to class ratios and bringing schools closer to home for children.

Moreover, the number of qualified teachers increased from 6,183 in 2019 to 9,215 in 2022. Other essential educational inputs for improving quality learning, such as provision of textbooks, computers, and teacher training, have also seen an increase. This has led to progressive improvements in learning outcomes for students, as indicated by the Learning Achievement in Rwandan School (LARS) Report 2023.

In line with overall Government of Rwanda (GoR) planning guidelines, the Ministry of Education has commenced the development of the new phase of ESSP, covering the period 2024 to 2029. A comprehensive review of the 2019-2024 ESSP implementation has been undertaken to take stock of results achieved, lessons learned and emerging issues. In addition, a comprehensive education sector analysis is required to ascertain whether the previous priorities remain relevant, considering new developments in the education sector. This analysis will outline new priorities that will guide the education sector for the next five years, aligning with the visions and aspirations of the government of Rwanda.

Given the context described above, the Ministry of Education has requested UNICEF to engage an experienced consultant to support the sector analysis and development of the 2024-2029 ESSP in collaboration with a task team established by the Ministry of Education to guide development of the strategic plan.
