Other Sub-Activities in the same Activity
    Sub-Activity 1: Expansion and upgrading of 47 general education schools
    Sub-Activity 2: Technical assistance to improve school maintenance and administration
    Sub-Activity 3: Equipment for Colleges of Education (CoEs)

This Activity involves the rehabilitation and innovation of school infrastructure, including teacher housing and equipment, in approximately 47 primary and secondary schools, and the funding of training programmes for school managers, administrators and teachers. The aim is to improve the quality of education at primary, junior secondary and senior-secondary schools, mainly in the underserved Northern Communal Areas (NCA), and to increase the number of students who proceed to senior secondary education.

The MCA Namibia Programme support will be directed towards improving the quality of education through:

  1. Expanding and renovating up to 47 general education schools in 9 of the 13 political/administrative regions;
  2. Providing technical assistance for the production of training materials based on the MoE “Minor Maintenance Policy” and training to improve school maintenance and enhancing school administration at regional and local levels;
  3. Providing policy, operational and administrative support for both general schools and the teacher training colleges (equipment and training in textbook and learning resource management and utilisation).

The MCA Namibia Programme will address dimensions of poor quality of infrastructure and equipment, overcrowding and lack of places at schools, repetition and difficulty in attracting well-qualified teachers to isolated schools.
