Project Summary, Objectives and Results
The Government has requested a TA is to support (i) in-depth review of the early status of the development of the Senior Secondary Education (SSE) schools and system (1998 and 2001), and (ii) initial establishment and operationalization of monitoring and evaluation functions within CSSE. The in-depth review will focus on assessment of external and internal efficiency, as well as adequacy of recurrent budget at a sample of new SSE schools. Results will be used to explore options and strategies for maximizing efficiency and effectiveness of the SSE sector. Findings will be presented and disseminated in time for the NPPT review in 2001, hence permitting integration into the NPPT strategies for 2002 and beyond.
The TA scope included reviewing and analyzing (i) SSE management and M&E; (ii) SSE programs, outcomes and external efficiency; and (iii) internal efficiency and educational finance.
The TA design covered key areas of relevance for building the capacity and improving the management of CSSE.
The scope, terms of reference, and implementation arrangements were considered appropriate.

|Components of the Education Process|
The TA was designed to meet the government’s needs and the inputs were clearly defined.
The TA was jointly implemented by CSSE and the Social Sectors Department of MOMES. The performance of the two executing agencies was satisfactory, but participation of CSSE staff was constrained by the fact that CSSE was newly established and had limited staff resources available.
TA outputs included an inception report, quarterly reports, a midterm report, research reports, workshops for data collection, dissemination of findings of research studies and recommendations for action plans, and a final report. The first quarterly report focused on describing activities and achievements, without sufficient focus on analysis.
However, subsequent reports analyzed issues in depth, and made strategic recommendations for CSSE management and college directors.
