Rationale:

  • Global progress towards UPE, but still slow

  • Low quality of education and lack of demand are key issues

  • Investing in primary school teachers to improve quality and to ensure that children complete and attain basic skills

    Main issues:

  • How many teachers are needed to meet the UPE goals

  • Reaching sufficient quantity and quality of primary teachers

  • Policy trade-offs: managing the balance

  • Mobilise efforts to improve international data on teachers


W hat factors and policies are related to teacher quantity and quality issues
What factors and policies are related to teacher quantity and quality issues?

Teacher quantity

Teacher quality

  • Population growth

  • Increased participation

  • High teacher attrition

  • (conflict, HIV-AIDS)

  • Education system output

  • Labour market, perception

  • of teaching profession

  • Efficiency of teacher

  • deployment and pupil

  • progression

  • Efforts to improve

  • staff-student ratios

  • Teacher standards

  • Pre-service training

  • In-service training

  • Monitoring and support

  • Conditions of service

Forecasting the required number of teachers to meet upe by 2015
Forecasting the required number Africa, early 2000s of teachers to meet UPE by 2015

  • Target: 1OO% net enrolment rate (or 110% gross enrolment ratio) to be reached by 2015

  • Assumptions

    • Improve coverage (meet UPE)

    • Improve efficiency (reduce repetition)

    • Improve quality (maintain PTR levels)

  • Improve the efficiency of system (allocation and deployment)

  • Explore the use of new training technologies

  • Accelerate teacher training programmes

  • Consider sustainable para-teacher schemes

  • Improve in-service training and support

  • Reduce attrition
