ANNEX 1 : Consultancy Terms of Reference

Education Sector Analysis & Education Sector Plan Development (2021-2024) for Ministry of education culture and Higher education federal government of Somalia

Background

The Somali Government collapsed in 1991 and since then the country experienced varying degrees of instability and conflict. All sectors in the country have been adversely affected by more than two decades of instability. The Somali provisional constitution was endorsed in 2012 marking Somalia’s slow transition and start of recovery. Since 2012, the country has witnessed a marked shift in the political landscape with the formation of the Federal Member States (FMS): Jubbaland State, South West State, Hirshabelle State, Galmudug State and Benadir Regional Administration. Together with Puntland State and Somaliland, these four Federal Member States and Benadir Regional Administration, make up Somalia’s political landscape.  The challenges that Somalia faces are complex, multifaceted and differ depending on the regional and state level contexts.

In 2017, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Higher Education (MOECHE) undertook a sector analysis and developed an Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP) 2018-2020 focusing on the critical education needs of the country in the short term as well as systems and capacity development set foundations for the development of a more enhanced sector plan in the coming years. As the current ESSP is expiring in December 2020, a new sector plan is needed in order to boost both access, quality and system strengthening of the education sector. The new ESSP is aimed at setting priorities and plans for Somalia’s education sector for the period of 2021-2024. The MOECHE together with the Federal Member States of Jubaland, South West, Hirshabelle, Galmudug and Benadir Regional Administration will be carrying out the Education Sector Analysis and the ESSPs development in each of the above FMS. This will involve the quantitative and qualitative analysis of a broad range of available data and literature on the sector.

Therefore, the MEOCHE together with Federal Member States Ministries of Education seek competent, qualified and experienced national education consultant (s) to support the Ministries in the respective member states and MEOCHE in the Education Sector Analysis and ESSP development.  The MOECHE has selected Save the Children as Grant Agent to provide technical and financial support to the process of ESA and ESSP development

The Assignment will be Accomplished within 6 Months.

Specific Tasks and Responsibilities

Under the overall leadership and technical guidance from the MOECHE and FMS MOEs, the national consultant (s) is expected to provide assistance to undertake the following activities:

For the Education Sector Analysis (ESA):

Assist in the analysis of the data gathered from the thematic areas (from pre-primary to higher education) into meaningful information that can inform the sector plan preparation;

Assist in drafting, reviewing and finalizing the sector analysis report.

For the Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP 2021-2024):

Based on the identified key priorities, develop strategies and activities that can lead to achieve the key priorities;
