The UNESCO Evaluation Office is currently seeking proposals from qualified individual consultants and/or evaluation companies to conduct the corporate Evaluation of UNESCO’s work on teacher development.
UNESCO is the UN agency mandated with promoting education and has been designated as the custodian of Sustainable Development Goal 4 on access to quality education. To achieve this ambition, UNESCO’s work has focused amongst other on the development of teachers, as essential actors of the field of education, capable of instilling learning. Quality education cannot be guaranteed without initially guaranteeing the quality of teaching.
This evaluation aims to assess the UNESCO Education Sector’s contributions to the development of teachers from a variety of angles (e.g. teacher retention, capacity-building, enhanced learning amongst students and other learners) since 2016. It will further determine the extent to which teachers can strategically feed into UNESCO’s new eight-year Strategy aimed at increasing learning and addressing various educational challenges. Based on the evidence provided and data collected, the evaluation will issue recommendations to guide UNESCO’s work on teachers and identify areas which warrant greater attention, namely in light of the significant disruption induced by the Covid-19 pandemic and the likely overhaul education systems worldwide will be subjected to.
The evaluation will take place between January and July 2021.
Please find more information on the evaluation itself and the application process on the UN Global Marketplace website here: https://www.ungm.org/Public/Notice/157973
