CONSULTANT (H/F) , Ivory Coast

Lieu: Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

Fréquence: Temps plein (37.5 heures par semaine).

Salaire: compétitif.

Durée du contrat: contrat à durée déterminée jusqu’en août 2024. Renouvellement probable – sous réserve de financement.

Contexte

Issu d’une organisation caritative britannique pour l'éducation, Ark, Education Partnerships Group (EPG) est un cabinet d’étude international sans but lucratif qui collabore avec les gouvernements pour façonner et renforcer leurs systèmes éducatifs. Nous croyons que chaque enfant a droit à une éducation de qualité, où qu’il aille à l’école. Nous croyons également que le monde ne peut pas se permettre de perdre une autre génération d’enfants à la crise de l’éducation. Notre vision, c’est que chaque gouvernement soit équipé pour s’assurer que chaque enfant aille à l’école et apprenne.

Nous donnons la priorité à la collaboration directe avec les gouvernements sur les réformes au niveau du système et à la pertinence contextuelle – en tenant compte du paysage politique, culturel et social dans les pays où nous travaillons. Nous nous efforçons d’être fondés sur des données probantes et d’utiliser ce que nous apprenons pour affiner notre soutien et éclairer le débat à l’échelle mondiale.

EPG travaille en partenariat avec les gouvernements dans trois domaines pratiques, sur la base des domaines de l'éducation qui nous semblent essentiels au changement de système:

Environnement politique et réglementaire

Données sur les performances et les progrès

Utilisation des données et amélioration du système

Aujourd’hui, EPG travaille dans cinq pays en Afrique subsaharienne : Afrique du Sud, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Sierra Leone et Zambie.

Nous privilégions la connaissance du contexte plutôt que de supposer que les idées peuvent simplement être transposées d'un pays à l'autre. Nous nous focalisons également sur le système - les rôles, les responsabilités et les relations avec les différents acteurs - plutôt que de travailler sur un domaine politique de manière isolée.

La COVID a démontré plus que jamais l’importance de systèmes d’éducation efficaces capables de coordonner et de cibler des ressources limitées au moyen d’approches fondées sur des données probantes pour la prestation de services d’éducation efficaces. Avec la demande croissante pour nos services, EPG se concentre actuellement sur la saisie de ces opportunités pour étendre notre présence dans les programmes pays actuels et dans de nouvelles zones géographiques.

EPG en Côte d’Ivoire

En mars 2017, EPG a reçu des fonds de la Fondation UBS Optimus (UBSOF) et de la Fondation Jacobs pour explorer les possibilités d’aider le gouvernement de Côte d’Ivoire à atteindre ses objectifs dans le secteur de l’éducation. Entre mars 2017 et février 2018, EPG s’est focalisé sur l’établissement d’une relation de confiance et de collaboration avec le Ministère de l’éducation nationale et de l’alphabétisation (MENA) - précédemment MENETFP1 -, afin d’assurer l’adhésion et l’appropriation des initiatives. L’engagement d’EPG à l’égard du MENA a abouti à la signature d’un protocole d’accord en février 2018, donnant ainsi à EPG l’approbation officielle de démarrer les activités pour soutenir le MENA.

Les axes de travail suivants ont été identifiés dans le cadre de cet accord

Recherche et expérience pilote des approches innovantes dans l’enseignement préscolaire.

Réforme du dispositif des frais d’écolage au premier cycle du secondaire privé: En vue de mieux comprendre le dispositif des frais d’écolage, une revue de la littérature a été conduite par le Réseau Ouest et Centre Africain de Recherche en éducation (ROCARE) en 2018. L’étude a révélé les acquis, mais également les défis de ce programme tout en mettant en exergue des questions stratégiques à aborder dans des études ultérieures.

En 2020, l’étude intitulée « Enquête initiale sur les frais d’écolage du premier cycle du secondaire privé en Côte d’Ivoire », a été réalisée par la Chaire UNESCO de bioéthique de l’Université Alassane Ouattara de Bouaké, sous la direction du Professeur Francis Akindès. L’objectif était d’identifier les moyens d’améliorer la viabilité financière, l’accès équitable et la qualité du dispositif des frais d’écolage.

Job Profile
Consultant



Location: Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire

Frequency: Full-time (37.5 hours per week)

Salary: Competitive

Contract: Fixed term contract until August 2024. Likely renewal – contingent upon funding.

Context

Incubated within UK education charity, Ark, the Education Partnerships Group (EPG) is an international not-for-profit consultancy that partners with governments to shape and strengthen their education systems. Our vision is that governments in low- and middle-income countries are equipped to ensure that every child goes to school and learns. We believe that supporting government to design and implement contextually relevant and evidence-based public policy is the best way to drive sustainable progress towards achieving quality education for all.

We assist governments across three critical stages of the policy process:

Generating and using research to inform policy

Supporting the design and development of policy

Supporting the piloting and scaling of policy reform initiatives

Today, EPG works in five countries in Sub-Saharan Africa: South Africa, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire, and Zambia.

In our work, we prioritise a genuine understanding of context rather than assuming ideas can simply be transplanted from one country to another. We also focus on the system – the roles, responsibilities, and relationships of all the different actors – rather than working on one policy area in isolation.

COVID has demonstrated more than ever the importance of effective education systems capable of coordinating and targeting limited resources through evidence-based approaches for impactful education service delivery. With growing demand for our services, EPG is currently focused on seizing those opportunities to expand our footprint in current programme countries and new geographies.

EPG in Côte d'Ivoire

EPG has been working with the Government of Côte d'Ivoire since 2017. EPG initially focused on establishing a relationship of trust and collaboration with the Ministry of National Education and Literacy (MENA) – previously MENETFP1 - and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with MENA in February 2018, formally starting EPG’s work supporting MENA to achieve its educational goals.

Since 2018, EPG has worked with MENA on the following projects:

Research and pilot experience of innovative approaches in preschool education

Reform of tuition fee subsidy to private lower secondary schools

In order to better understand the tuition fee system, a literature review was conducted by the Réseau Ouest et Centre Africain de Recherche en Education (ROCARE) in 2018. The study revealed the achievements, but also the challenges of this programme while highlighting strategic issues to be addressed in future studies. In 2020, the study entitled "Scoping study on private lower secondary school subsidy in Côte d'Ivoire" was carried out by the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics at the Alassane Ouattara University in Bouaké, under the direction of Professor Francis Akindès. The objective was to identify ways of improving the financial viability, equitable access and quality of the tuition fee scheme.
