Education reform: Final report 2015

05 August 2016

This is the final report of UNRWA Education Reform (2011-2015), as although work must continue to embed, sustain and build upon its achievements in the Medium Term Strategy (MTS) period, the funded implementation period of the Reform ended in December 2015. The Education Reform Strategy (ERS) was designed to bring about transformational change to classroom practices and thus improve children’s learning outcomes through the adoption of a systemic and interrelated approach. Over the past four years, the Reform has been vehicle for change at three key levels – policy level, strategy or structural level, and individual capacity development level – and in eight interrelated programmatic areas, addressing teachers, curriculum, student assessment, student inclusion and well-being.
