Deadline: 24 May 2017
The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) is currently inviting applicants for its Syria Education Program to discuss and explore how best to implement an education programme inside Syria under a multi-year agreement potentially starting from January 2018 and likely to run for 3 years.
DFID intends to discuss the possible scope of the work with a view to helping inform design of this potential programme. In particular, DFID would like to understand current areas and levels of supplier expertise in the education sector inside Syria, the broader MENA region and in other conflict and high risk environments.
DFID intends to hold a workshop style session. The session will focus on:
- provision of access to quality learning opportunities for children and young people, including work to reach out of school children.
- support improvements to the learning environment, and
- measures to ensure transparent and effective service delivery.
In line with UK policy, the work will take a gender and disability sensitive approach. Two identical workshops will be held, one in Amman, Jordan, on Monday 5th June 2017, and a second in Gaziantep, Turkey, on Wednesday 7th June 2017.
The estimated potential funding of between £18 million and £39 million is available.
How to Apply
Interested applicants must apply using DFID supplier portal.
