USAID Armenia’s short-term technical assistance (STTA) for inclusive education will provide key programming support to the Ministry of Education and Science (MOES). The STTA will provide policy guidance and programming advice to improve the quality of inclusive education and to ensure ‘inclusion’ and not simply ‘integration’ for children with special educational needs and/or with disabilities and with learning difficulties.
Specific tasks include:
- Development of a Strategic Vision Paper: the Paper will include strategic level vision for the IE reform implementation and be the basis for the policy development for the GOAM.
- Development of a Roadmap: the roadmap will provide the needed steps and timeline to accomplish the policy recommendations.
The MOES expects to receive the STTA deliverables – Strategic Vision Paper and the Roadmap – in March 2019 so that it moves ahead with the approval of respective bylaws in May 2019.
The STTA will advise the Minister/Deputy Minister of Education and Science and/or their designate, share analyses and strategies on the inclusive education programming. The Senior Education Policy Advisor will mainly work independently ensuring that tasks are achieved in a timely manner. S/he will report to USAID/Armenia’s Activity Manager of the direct assistance to the MOES, while sharing updates and copies of produced deliverables with DCHA/DRG’s Empowerment and Inclusion (EI) Division and E3/Education’s Disability Inclusive Education division, which together lead much of USAID’s work on children in adversity and disability inclusion.
