Education in Maldives
Maldives’ education sector plan (ESP) for 2018-22 is a result of comprehensive education sector analysis and consultative work led by the country’s Ministry of Education (MoE). It is the first time that the MoE has developed a comprehensive sector analysis and education plan since 1995.
The education plan has 4 goals:
- Improved learning for all, through equitable access to quality education
- Skilled youth and adults for employment, decent work and entrepreneurship
- Ensure equitable access to lifelong, affordable and quality higher education for all
- System strengthening for efficiency and quality schools for all.
The ESP covers all key sub-sectors of education including early childhood education, primary and secondary education, higher education and technical and vocational education and training. The monitoring and evaluation framework detailed in the ESP emphasizes the need to develop a number of analytical work using robust data, learning measurements and evaluations.
