In this component, a study will be conducted that will comprehensively address access, equity, quality and management issues in non formal education, in particular focusing on how the non formal system can complement the formal system in the achievement of quality basic education for all. In particular it will examine options for making sure that all children and youth are able to achieve their right to complete at least an equivalent cycle of primary level education can at the very least complete a full cycle of quality primary level education. It will also look at the general scope of NFE to support community and life-long learning, and make recommendations for NFE reform.
It will identify options for NFE expansion to meet current and likely future demands and needs, including increasing access to appropriate NFE provision. It will identify strategies to improve the quality of NFE, including curriculum, readers, learning resources and IT, skills development, minimum quality standards for courses and programmes, facilitator training and standards.
Development of an equivalency framework and other measures to improve linkages between non formal primary education (NFPE) and the formal education system, to support transfer of children back into the formal system and to ensure that planning for non formal primary education is in tandem with, and responds to, development in the formal basic education sub-sector will also be examined
Options for human resource and institutional development for NFE in Myanmar, including facilitator training, strengthening Community Learning Centres, and accreditation of programmes of non-government providers will also be included.
