According to World Bank documents, the objective of the proposed investment is to enhance access to, and quality of, secondary education in Maldives.
The proposed Project will support the Government of Maldives (GoM) to improve learning outcomes in science, mathematics and English in the general education system, with a special focus on the secondary education grades 7- 10. The Project will also support the GoM to enable students to access vocational education opportunities in secondary education. The Project will also strengthen teacher performance through focused continuing teacher development initiatives and school-based teacher development programs. In addition, the Project will support the development and implementation of national assessments of learning outcomes for students at secondary grades with international modules. Further, the Project will assist the implementation of internal and external quality assurance and quality enhancement activities in schools. FInally, the Project will support coordination and monitoring, and technical assistance and communication.
The Project is expected to directly benefit about 69,000 students, including around 3,000 children with special education needs, and approximately 8,000 teachers. In addition, the Project will indirectly benefit suppliers of education material and equipment, and later on employers and tertiary education institutions that will receive better qualified secondary school completers.
The Project will assist the MoE mainly for soft interventions in terms of educational curriculum reforms to roll out two innovations to the secondary school curriculum,(i) a vocational skills option will be added to the secondary education grades and (ii) STEM subjects will be introduced in the secondary and higher secondary grades.
