Programme Background

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Sector Programme (KESP-II) is a four-year education reform programme funded by UKAid’s Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO), formerly known as Department for International Development (DFID) and the Australian Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to support the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (GoKP) to achieve an outcome of “more children in school, staying longer, and learning more.” KESP’s technical assistance (TA), delivered by Adam Smith International (ASI), focuses on supporting the government achieve this outcome.

The TA team’s mission is to work at provincial, sub-provincial and school levels to provide comprehensive, flexible and high-quality technical support to the GoKP in the delivery of its strategy and priorities for transforming education service delivery. These priorities primarily focus on (i) improving teaching and learning in KP’s public schools, (ii) improving school infrastructure and facilities, (iii) providing better and more equitable access to education and (iv) strengthening governance and management across the public education sector.

In 2017, KESP TA introduced the District Performance Scorecard (DPS) to assess district performance and ensure their accountability on key performance indicators. Data collected from Education Monitoring Authority (EMA), Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Directorate of Curriculum and Teachers Education (DCTE) and Provincial Institute of Teacher Education (PITE) is used to evaluate district education offices, male and female, on indicators related to quality of education and its access. On the resultant scorecards of Quality and Access, the education offices are ranked. The rankings are shared in monthly meetings held under the E&SED senior leadership and the top performing offices are awarded with cash incentives in these meetings. Data analysis, generation of scorecards and rankings are currently effort and time intensive processes therefore to facilitate the handover of this intervention to government TA envisions that a complete automated solution will ensure transparency and efficiency in generating scorecards and rankings.
