Deadline: 18 July 2016
DFID Sierra Leone is implementing a programme of support to the education sector – the Sierra Leone Secondary Education Improvement Programme (SSEIP) over the next five years.
The SSEIP is part of a wider commitment of support by DFID to assist the recovery and further development of Sierra Leone.
SSEIP is the largest single externally funded programme to the education sector. Other major support comes from the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), supervised by the World Bank, with a focus on primary education.
The SSEIP seeks to support the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) to improve learning outcomes for boys and girls at upper primary and secondary level and to increase the enrolment, retention and well-being of girls in school. The programme is being delivered in the context of Sierra Leone’s recovery from Ebola.
The initial 15 months of the programme will support the President’s Recovery Priorities in which education is one of five priority sectors. These Recovery Priorities build Priorities build on the successes of the initial 9 month recovery programme which saw the re-opening of schools after their closure during the state of emergency from August 2014 to April 2015. Beyond the President’s Recovery Priorities , which end in June 2017, SSEIP remains open and flexible to respond to the newly emerging priorities of the Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL), noting that a general election is due towards the end of 2017.
