Consultancy Service on Preparation of National Strategy for English Language Education Development

Ethiopia | Published April 20, 2017  -  Deadline May 6, 2017
cpvs

It goes without saying that the recent phenomena related to globalization and world competitiveness have resulted in a major and multifarious transition in terms of business, education, science, and technological progress. They call for provision of quality education at all levels. To this effect, the Ministry of Education (MoE) of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) has made vigorous efforts in producing qualified and competitive human capital to be deployed in all fields of professional careers. This is expected to happen chiefly through education and training, which today are seen as ever more critical to fuelling the effort of becoming middle-income country. In the current Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II) and Education Sector Development Programme (ESDP V) documents, education is stated as a major vehicle to drive the country’s economic growth and development.

If education is the key to development, then English is the key to Ethiopian education since the curriculum is delivered through the medium of English in some second cycle of primary schooling and throughout secondary and higher education. Although enrolment rates have increased dramatically over recent years, the quality of the education provided has been called into question. With the launch of the General Education Quality Improvement Programme (GEQIP) in 2008, the focus across the education spectrum was geared towards quality and therefore the role played by English as a subject as well as medium of instruction becomes central.

The idea behind teaching English starting from grade one is to allow children to experience English language in their early ages. So they will have adequate proficiency of English skills by the time they complete their eight year primary education where they may either join the broad based agricultural and informal work force or continue their general secondary education which is taught in English. Besides, the potential advantage of being proficient in English for communications and global partnerships and for improved public diplomacy and business has been well envisioned in the education and training policy.

Considering the multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-linguistic realities of Ethiopia, and being well conscious of the advantages of citizens’ being multilingual for broader employment and other opportunities in the national and international labour markets, the policy has also addressed bi-and multi-lingualism in which children should have access to learn other local languages as their second and third languages and other foreign languages such as French, Arabic and so forth based on their interest.

However, there hasn’t been a comprehensive national strategic guidance hitherto to support the implementation of the policy at grass root levels. Therefore, the Ministry of Education has decided to prepare a national strategy for mother tongue and English language education development in line with the umbrella national vision of achieving a middle income economy by 2025.As a result, this strategic activity of language education development has been planned to be accomplished as part of the second Growth and Transformation Plan and ESDPV which emphasize on improved mother tongue and English languages skill proficiency of both teachers and students.

For expedited and timely completion of the English language education development national strategy, it has become necessary to undertake procurement of a competent consultancy firm experienced in the development of policy, strategy and planning of English languages education in multi-lingual, multi-ethnic and multicultural countries such as Ethiopia.

Consultancy Service on the Preparation of National Strategy for Mother Tongue Languages Education Development

Ethiopia | Published April 21, 2017  -  Deadline May 6, 2017
cpvs

Ethiopia has been implementing a multi-lingual and decentralized education and training policy/ETP since 1994. The policy provides all citizens with the right to attend an eight year primary education in their own mother tongue. Apart from being a fundamental child right, this policy provision has sound pedagogical benefits in facilitating school attendance and enhancing children’s learning. Following the implementation of the policy, the number of mother tongue languages taught as subjects and used as media of instruction has reached over 51 during the past two decades, and a remarkable expansion of primary education has been documented where the net enrolment ratio for primary education has reached 96% in 2015 from nearly 20% in 1997.
Considering the multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-linguistic realities of Ethiopia, and being well conscious of the advantages of citizens’ being bi-or multilingual for broader socio-cultural interdependence and for improved economic opportunities in the national and international labour markets, the policy has addressed bi-and multilingualism in which children should have access to learn local languages, other than their own mother tongue, as their second and third languages and other foreign languages based on their interest.
However, there hasn’t been a comprehensive national strategic guidance hitherto to support the implementation of the policy at grass root levels. Therefore, the Ministry of Education has decided to prepare a national strategy for mother tongue languages education development in line with the umbrella national vision of achieving a middle income economy by 2025. As a result, this strategic activity of language education development has been planned to be accomplished as part of the second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTPII) and the fifth education sector development programme (ESDP V) which emphasize on improved mother tongue languages education development for enhanced mother tongue reading and writing skills proficiency of both teachers and students.
For expedited and timely completion of the mother tongue languages education development national strategy, it has become necessary to undertake procurement of a competent consultancy firm experienced in the development of policy, strategy and planning of mother tongue languages education development in multi-lingual, multi-ethnic and multicultural countries like Ethiopia

Health Education England Pharmacy Independent Prescribing

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust | Published March 7, 2017  -  Deadline May 14, 2017
cpvs
80000000, 85149000

Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England by ensuring that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.

HEE, in partnership with NHS England, has a requirement to procure approximately 2000 General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) accredited Pharmacist Independent Prescribers courses across England as part of an initial 2-year contract.

Pharmacist independent prescribing has been identified as an essential aspect of workforce transformation aimed at developing clinical pharmacy roles with a view to the delivery of medicines optimisation and the promotion of health and wellbeing, both through community pharmacies and elsewhere in primary care, as part of integrated patient pathways.

The requirements for non-medical prescribing courses are clearly set out by three regulatory bodies that approve courses (NMC, HCPC and GPhC). Courses commissioned through this tender will need to be accredited by the GPhC. The criteria that inform what good looks like will be based on the HEE Quality Standards, which are available at: https://www.hee.nhs.uk/our-work/planning-commissioning/commissioning-quality

However, HEE is keen to attract new entrants into the market to deliver the programme and, where a supplier is working towards accreditation and is part of a partnership with other providers, will consider staggering programme start dates to enable subsequent accreditation as long as the lead provider as a minimum has already secured GPhC accreditation and the unaccredited supplier has achieved accreditation before commencing delivery of their first cohort of the commissioned Independent Prescribing programme.

Delivery is likely to be from Sept 2017 onwards as part of an initial 2-year contract with the potential for extension following review.

The successful bidders will be expected to work with the education and training pathway providers across service areas e.g. care homes, integrated urgent care hubs, and clinical pharmacists in general practice.

The overall deliverables are expected to include pastoral care to learners, appropriate support and development of the prescribing supervisors, and active participation in a programme of evaluation co-ordinated by an NHS research and evaluation team.

A market engagement event will be held on the 27th of March in London, and Health Education England would like to invite interested parties to attend.

For further details please contact Lucas Ortega via the In-Tend portal or by email:-

The Invitation to Tender is expected to be published on 7 April 2017 with an award in Summer 2017 prior to the start of programme delivery in September 2017.
