Education Consultancy: Study to assess learning from implementation of a Key Resource Teacher model in Southern Tanzania

In October and November 2017, AKF will conduct a qualitative assessment of the KRT model to assess impact, progress, and learning after one year of implementation. More specifically we would like to understand:
  • Overall impact of the KRT model, particularly in terms of:
A. The standard of teaching and learning in the classroom
  • What evidence exists that demonstrates that this model has improved teaching and learning?
  • Do teachers consider their performance to have improved because of the model
B. The motivation of teachers

C. Whether teachers value the KRTs support and why

D. Collaborative peer-to-peer support - does the model drive a process of reflective learning that develops teachers’ internal motivation for professional growth and development
  • Aspects of the KRT model that have proved effective
A. Key success factors (e.g. initial training; support materials; on-going support from AKF, Ward Education Coordinator (WEC), and LGA)
B. Frequency of lesson observations, quarterly meetings etc.
  • Sustainability of the model:
A. How the government system is managing and coordinating the KRT model
B. What will embed the model and enable it to become a sustainable, low-cost, decentralised mechanism for driving professional growth and quality
  • Key learning
  • Recommendations based on the findings
This research comes at an opportune time as the government works to develop a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) framework. Learning from the implementation of the KRT model would therefore provide AKF with the opportunity to inform the modality of this and contribute to the design of the CPD.

We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.

Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We're changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.

Save the Children has been operational in Tanzania since 1986 providing support to children through developmental and humanitarian relief programmes delivered in support of Government of Tanzania priorities and policies both directly and through local partners. Current programming focuses on child protection, child rights governance, education, nutrition, HIV/TB and emergency response. In 2012, as part of a global reorganization process, Save the Children combined programmes of SCUK, SCUS, SC Sweden to create a single operation in Tanzania.
