The Ministry of Education conducted an Annual Performance Review (APR) workshop on the National Education Strategic Plan (NESP) for the 2017-2018 fiscal year at Mingala Thiri Hotel, Nay Pyi Taw, on Wednesday.
In his opening address, Union Minister for Education Dr. Myo Thein Gyi said the Ministry of Education had designated nine sectors in the NESP (2016-2021) with an aim towards creating education opportunities and providing students quality education, as well as set up 12 priority works to implement the reform. According to the NESP, emphasis is placed on no discrimination at all levels of education while creating opportunities, and ensuring that no one is left behind, that there are no dropouts and gender equality. The teaching and learning processes that enable the students to become good human beings, as well as cooperative, dutiful, responsible and innovative, will be implemented to strengthen the quality education reform. Besides basic education, the systematic development of technology, vocational education and training works, higher education works, out of school and lifelong education works are being conducted, said the union minister.
Implementing NESP is not like other projects. In NESP, yearly targets are set and the yearly implementation by each department is reviewed and reported. Through the review, not only are the results known but the basis of the performance and capacity building required are also known.
Today’s workshop is to review the second year performance of NESP and suggestions obtained from it will be submitted to the 8th Education & TVET Sector Coordination Group (8th ETVSCG) meeting, and more recommendations to implement the aims of the NESP will be obtained, said the union minister.
Next, Dr. Sai Kyaw Naing Oo of the study and assessment group (research) explained the aims and targeted outcomes of the workshop, and the various work groups in attendance held group-wise discussions.
The workshop was attended by chairman and representatives of the Amyotha Hluttaw education promotion committee, National Education Policy Commission, national curriculum committee and national quality assurance and assessment committee, professors, committee chairman, directors-general, officials from the Ministry of Education, representatives of international development partner organisations and civil society organisations, and invited guests. The workshop will be held until 22 June.
