This project supports the Niger Education and Training Sector Transition Plan to improve education in Niger. Global Affairs Canada has signed a delegated cooperation arrangement with the Agence française de développement (AFD) to implement this project, valued at up to $3,000,000 over 3 fiscal years. Project activities include: (1) improving access to and equity in education and training, including for girls; (2) improving the quality of education and training, including for girls; and (3) improving the steering and management of the education and training system. The Niger Education and Training Sector Transition Plan directly benefits all students and teachers in Niger, from preschool to university. The Niger Education and Training Sector Transition Plan states, among other things, that 50,000 out-of-school youths and nearly 500,000 young people in vocational and technical training will benefit from the Niger Education and Training Sector Transition Plan by 2023.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes, as formulated by the Niger Education and Training Sector Program Transition Plan, include: (1) reduced geographical disparities, the implementation of incentive measures favouring girls, stimulating demand for the education of girls and disadvantaged children, and the promotion of inclusive education including for girls and the most vulnerable; (2) increased learning time, revision of curriculums, and initial teacher training to foster teacher versatility; and (3) More small rural school networks and the implementation of a new human resources management strategy.
