Solomon Islands Release

12 May 2017 | Honiara

The Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development (MEHRD) will release a Performance Assessment Report that informs its National Education Action Plan 2016 – 2020.

The Pacific Community (SPC) technical support assisted developing the Performance Assessment Report (PAR) in late 2016. This work was done through SPC’s Education Management Information System Systems (EMIS) support facility of the Educational Quality and Assessment Programme (EQAP), which is supported by the Australian Government.

 

 

 

Speaking about the PAR Report, locally-based SPC Applications Developer, Colley Falasi said, “The development of the draft PAR report is a joint work effort between SPC and MEHRD in the Solomon Islands. It is encouraging to see that MEHRD is now taking leadership and ownership to finalize this report which will soon be available online.”

SPC’s technical support contributed to strengthening the Solomon Islands’ Education Management Information System (SIEMIS), which helped the ministry produce the PAR report.

The PAR report covers indicators that are relevant to measure progress against the three main strategic policies of the National Education Action Plan 2016 – 2020. The aim of the Plan is: – to improve equitable access and completion of education at different levels, to improve quality and relevance of education, and to improvement Management of the education system in the Solomon Islands.

The data will be used by the Solomon Islands Government, MEHRD and the many stakeholders, who all require this high-quality, timely information to make informed decisions on planning, policy and programme development, and resource allocation.

Newsflash

Monday 16 September 2013, Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), Suva, Fiji: Fifty-nine staff members of the Secretariat of the Pacific (SPC) staff have completed disaster risk management (DRM) and climate change training in recent months.

Half-day training sessions were held in Suva (Fiji), Honiara (Solomon Islands), Pohnpei (Federated States of Micronesia) and Noumea (New Caledonia), designed to build staff capacity in areas related to climate change and disaster risk management. It is part of a programme of action to mainstream these issues across all of the divisions of SPC.

Because of their impact on social, economic, market and industry sectors, DRM and climate change are considered ‘cross-cutting’ issues, and SPC is integrating such issues into its programmatic approach to development.  This process is referred to as mainstreaming.

SPC is the Pacific region’s principal technical and scientific organisation. Its divisions are involved in research and project implementation in the areas of applied geoscience and technology; public health; fisheries, aquaculture and marine environment; economic development (transport and energy); statistics for development; land resources (agriculture, forestry, land use, animal health, etc.); and education, training and human development.

The training for SPC staff is designed to enable them to better understand DRM and climate change and to factor this professional awareness into personal roles and functions. The training is also designed to enable SPC staff to further contribute to the organisational goal of serving Pacific Island countries and territories (PICTs) by assisting them to mainstream DRM and climate change into national and regional planning processes.
