Monitoring & Evaluation Consultant for QUEST Project Quality Cross-Border Education Support in Thailand (QUEST)

Background

 The QUEST project aims to ensure that conflict affected children in Karen areas of South East Myanmar have access to quality basic and non-formal education and that communities support children’s learning. The project contributes to the goals outlined in the Sustainable Development Goal 4 Targets.

It is a three year project (2017 to 2019) generously funded by Save the Children Hong Kong. The QUEST project is implemented in partnership with the Karen Teacher’s Work Group (KTWG) and particularly their amazing cadre of Mobile Teacher Trainers. The project targets over 7,000 children enrolled in over 300 community schools operating in Karen areas of South East Myanmar. 

Project Goal:  The project’s goal is to ensure that conflict affected children in Southeast Myanmar (Karen area) have access to quality basic and non-formal education (NFE) and communities support children’s learning.

The key strategies aimed to improve learning in Karen areas of South East Myanmar include:

  1. Rigorous assessment of a representative sample of children’s learning outcomes in literacy and numeracy in Sgaw Karen;
  2. Support for Teachers in community schools – this includes both provision for teacher stipends and comprehensive teacher training that targets literacy, numeracy, and Social Emotional Learning;
  3. Community Action - Parent Education Sessions – recognizing that parents are the first teachers and that even illiterate parents have the ability to immensely impact their children’s learning and wellbeing. Peer Learning – particularly as it relates to helping primary age students transition from learning to read to reading to learn. Youth activities include reading circles, reading clubs, reading festivals and other innovative initiatives to inspire life-long learning.
  4. Children’s Books – increasing the availability of quality, age appropriate children’s books in local languages;
  5. Flexible Non-Formal Education – the project aims to pilot at least one intervention targeting over-age students whose education was interrupted by the on-going conflict.
