This study will explore in more depth issues of relevance to Higher Education in order to identify key element of a policy framework and priorities to address in the Education Sector Plan. A strong emphasis will be given to consultation and dialogue, particularly given the large number of agencies currently involved in this subsector. In some cases, selective emphasis may be given to higher education’s feed-in to fields expected to play key roles in driving rebalanced economic growth, including in engineering and agriculture. Some parts may be integrated with the TVET Component (link).
The study will assess options for increasing physical access, and equity in access/ opportunity, to Higher Education especially for disadvantaged groups. It will also analyse the quality and relevance of Higher Education and assess options to improve quality, relevance and efficiency of Higher Education. It will also explore options to improve the management and financing of Higher Education, as well as explore and recommend options for improving partnerships in Higher Education, and make recommendations for Higher Education reform.
