About the ZEST project
Working with World Vision Zambia (WVZ), the Open University UK (OU) have secured funds from the Scottish Government (SG) to implement a project called Zambian Education School-based Training (ZEST).
The aim of the project is to contribute to improved quality of teaching and learning experiences for children in primary schools in Zambia, in support of effective implementation of the Revised Zambian School Curriculum, by helping primary teachers in Central Province improve the quality of their classroom practice.
Working with The Ministry of General Education (MoGE) in Zambia, the project will do this through co-designing and testing a school based continuing professional development (SBCPD) programme with primary teachers, school leaders and educational officials; implementing the SBCPD programme with up to 4000 primary teachers in 4 target districts in Zambia's Central Province; and building capacity of MoGE officials in implementing the programme to help the MoGE in operationalising their national In-Service Strategy .
Aim of the study
The aim of the baseline study is to establish the current situation in 4 target districts of Chisamba, Kabwe, Mumbwa and Shibuyunji, in Central Province, with regard to active teaching and learning and teacher engagement in collaborative SBCPD, prior to project execution.
The study will contribute to the overall monitoring and evaluation framework for the project. It seeks to establish benchmarks for three key Logical Framework (Logframe, Appendix 2) indicators and provide baseline values for these indicators against which ZEST project progress can be measured during implementation and after the project is completed.
