How can you make a difference?

  1. Purpose and Objective:

In partnership with the Mozambican government, the UNICEF country office in Mozambique supports primary education with a focus on quality education and learning outcomes in basic literacy and numeracy. These interventions are in line with the Mozambican government plans, strategies and priority actions and annually agreed with Ministry of Education and Human Development (MINEDH). The five main outputs in the Annual Work Plan (AWP) are:

  1. Promote increased access to early learning and school readiness;
  2. Improve quality of primary education and learning outcomes through more competent and better-motivated teachers;
  3. Promote increased access for vulnerable children and retention of adolescent girls in primary schools;
  4. Build capacity for better planning, management and monitoring at national, sub-national and school level; and
  5. Ensure children including adolescents to have access to learning opportunities in a safe and clean learning environment during and after the emergencies.

The monitoring and evaluation (M&E) component of donor funded programmes is getting more and more crucial, requiring more detailed intervention to obtain better outcomes, identify good practices, challenges and lessons learned, as well as intervene on challenges to improve the programme implementation. It is therefore important for UNICEF to equip with highly skilled M&E staff. In this consultancy opportunity, the consultant is expected to support the monitoring and evaluation component of various donor-funded programmes, including programmes funded by the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the Japanese Committee for UNICEF (JCU).
