By 2030 universal access to quality basic and secondary education and improved access to relevant and quality education and training will be achieved.
The programmatic approach used in this plan is a departure from programs based mainly on cycles of education (basic education, secondary education, tertiary education, technical vocational education & training, quality assurance, and sector management) to more result-oriented programming with emphasis on implementable interventions within priority areas. The new programs are as follows:
- Access & Equity;
- Quality and Relevance;
- Research & Development;
- Science, Technology, Engineering & Math;
- Sector Management; and
- Program Development Objectives:
I. The Access and Equity Program Area is expected to deliver as an output: Increased access to and improved equity within basic, secondary, technical and vocational education and training, tertiary and higher education.
II. The Quality and Relevance Program Area is expected to deliver as an output: Improved delivery of quality and relevance of basic, secondary, technical and vocational education and training, tertiary and higher education achieved.
III. The Research and Development Program Area is expected to establish functional research associations, increase functional research laboratories within research and higher education institutions, establish sustainable funding mechanisms for research, increase the level of participation of the private sector in research and development and increase the level of international collaboration in research and development.
IV. The Science and Technology Innovation Program Area is expected to develop and implement STEM education and training programs, promote the use of ICT for technological and scientific innovation, establish a STEM Governance framework and develop proactive programmes for the availability of STEM infrastructure.
V. The Sector Management is expected to ensure timely and accurate information dissemination between MoBSE and stakeholders using cost-efficient and effective training programs for staff through the short, long, and medium-term courses.
