Brief Description: National Quality Kindergarten (KG) Education in Ghana
PDA supported the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Ghana Education Service (GES) in preparing a 5-year Operational Plan for scaling up national quality Kindergarten (KG) Education in Ghana. The development of this 5-year operational plan was the second phase of a process that began in mid-2011 and built on a substantial amount of work done in the first phase: including literature reviews, meetings with key stakeholders and the work of five technical working groups. These resulted in the GES and the MoE completing a situational and stakeholder analysis, with the support of international consultants, led by Cambridge Education.
The second phase sought to build on and deepen the outputs and processes of the first phase. The end result was a fully costed operational plan owned by GES and MoE, including a 20-30 page narrative in a format that could be easily integrated into the Government of Ghana (GoG) policy, planning and budgeting processes (including the ESP, the AESOP and the Annual Budget presentation to Parliament).
