Public Sector Network Tender Alert


DFID 5806 - Complementary Basic Education Programme, Ghana

The objective of this requirement is to provide CBE to out-of-school children to enable them to transition into the formal system, particularly in poor and rural areas; and to improve the capacity of the Government of Ghana to continue with this programme following the withdrawal of the SP. Scope of work - The SP will manage the disbursement of funds to implementing partners to run CBE programmes to reach 120,000 out-of-school children. It is anticipated that an estimated £8-10 million will be disbursed as grants to non-state providers, implementing CBE programmes over the project period. 3 Main outputs to be delivered: 120,000 out-of-school children (aged between 8-14 years) will be provided with access to a standardised CBE programme, taught in their mother tongue language, enabling them to rapidly develop numeracy and literacy skills over a nine-month cycle. On completing the nine-month programme these children will be able to enter into primary school at the appropriate class level. These CBE programmes will be delivered by implementing partners, such as non- state providers at the district and community levels. The Government of Ghana will be supported in strengthening its leadership in managing, implementing standardised CBE programmes and developing the procurement systems to effectively contract non-state providers independently. DFID will support investments that will strengthen the evidence base on providing education to out-of-school children.
