TZ-Zanzibar Improving Student Prospects Project.
Commitment Amount: US$ 50.00 million
Borrower: UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANZANIA, MINISTRY OF
Primary education: 30%
Secondary education: 70%
The project will focus on improving the future economic prospects of students in the school system by using a two-tier approach that (i) addresses key system-level failures; and (ii) provides targeted support directly to students near high drop-out points to help them stay in school and/or improve their labor market opportunities.
While specific interventions will be identified through consultative multi-stakeholder discussions,
the overall approach has been developed in consultation with the government. Under this approach,
addressing system-level failures will include a focus on: improving teacher effectiveness
(particularly through improved content knowledge, pedagogy, and supervision), timely delivery of
adequate capitation grants, strengthening of Education Management Information System (EMIS),
and construction of science labs. Targeted support to students near high drop-out points will entail a
strong focus on student cohorts in Standard 6 and Forms 1-4 when most of the drop outs happen.
This support will mainly be to reduce rates of drop-outs (especially before secondary completion)
and non-activity. Interventions could include: assessment of reading, writing, and arithmetic skills
(3R); provision of remedial education; encouragement and support for increased enrollment in
science subjects; and support for labor market transition (information on market returns, support for
networking, and apprenticeship opportunities in labor market).
