Egypt, Support to Egyptian Primary Schooling Project (STEPS II): January 2003–March 2011

Sector: Education and Education Reform
Region: North Africa and the Middle East

The vision of STEPS II has been articulated very clearly by the Egyptian Ministry of Education (MOE). STEPS II will support the MOE in achieving comprehensive quality education in Egypt. STEPS II will support the efforts of the MOE by promoting school-based improvement through all its activities. It will use the school as the unit of change. The success of STEPS II will ultimately be measured on the basis of how it has contributed to the MOE's vision of improved schools as expressed in the national standards. The overall approach of STEPS II is comprehensive and systemic, linking interventions at the school to all levels of the education system. Local and national level primary education personnel are identifying mechanisms for mobilizing school leaders and communities around education reform. The anticipated result of STEPS II is an enhanced basic education system at the school, idara, moderaya and national levels that actively supports the implementation of the national standards.

The People's Republic of China: Sichuan, Xinjiang and Ningxia provinces, Strengthening Capacity in Basic Education in Western China (CIDA): January 2001–September 2007

Sector: Education and Education Reform
Region: North and Central Asia

SCBEWC was a bilateral project between the Government of Canada and the People's Republic of China. It took place in six rural counties within three western provinces selected because of their linguistic and culture diversity and their levels of poverty. The Government of China identified the creation of a system for effective teacher education through distance education as a strategic priority within its Western Development Strategy, which had particular resonance for remote areas. Agriteam led a consortium that included Alberta Learning and the Universities of Alberta, Athabasca and Calgary. Together we assisted our Chinese partners to enhance their capacity at three levels: effective policy and planning; the production of quality teacher education materials; and the development of a Learning Support Center in each of the 360 project schools to support school-based teacher education via distance.

 

Tanzania, Canada’s Assistance to the District Based Support to Primary Education Project (CIDA): January 2002–January 2007

Sector: Education and Education Reform
Region: Sub-Saharan Africa

This initiative assisted the Ministry of Education and Culture in Tanzania to integrate gender equality, HIV/AIDS considerations and environmental sustainability into the country’s primary education reform efforts.

The facilitators worked within a sector-wide approach (SWAp) in the education sector, strengthening the capacity of ministry officials to work in a multi-donor and multi-stakeholder environment.
