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

From the Manager’s Desk

We’ve passed the mid-point for 2012 and have developed a few stories from the work we’ve done over July and August which we hope you will find interesting. These recent months have also seen a hive of activity for us in terms of our preparations for the 4th session of the Pacific Platform for Disaster Risk Management and Regional Water & Sanitation Consultations which are coming together this year in Noumea, New Caledonia on 17th – 21st September. We hope to have some interesting results from that meeting and look forward to sharing these with you in our next edition.

In July, SOPAC DRP bade farewell to our Training Support Officer, Vuli Gauna. During his time with the programme he visited a number of Pacific Island countries to assist with the development of national trainers and to implement DRM training courses in support of national capacity building efforts. Vuli recently led the completion and implementation of the new Disaster Risk Reduction course – a major undertaking.

Vuli has taken up a position with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) regional delegation in Suva, as the Regional Disaster Management Programme Manager, and can be contacted at [email protected]

We wish Vuli all the best in his future endeavours and know that his disaster management training expertise will still be utilized across the region in his new career.

I hope you will enjoy reading this edition.
