Part of its continuous interest and passion to contribute to the development of the education sector in Egypt, CID completed its work on the Girls’ Improved Learning Outcomes (GILO) project, working with a consortium led by RTI and multiple stakeholders to support the implementation of Egypt’s strategy of School Based Reform.
The project was primarily focused on ensuring that girls get equitable access to primary and preparatory education, as well as helping Egypt improve the learning outcomes in public schools.
Throughout this project, the CID team worked with different schools to achieve school based reform through quality education while carrying out regular self-assessment of schools to ensure their consistent improvement. The team’s role also included identifying and conducting training sessions for thousands of teachers, supervisors and administrators within targeted communities on effective teaching methodologies. Training sessions included topics on efficient classroom management, coaching strategies, and the use of technology in teaching. Training was also conducted for principals, deputies, and administrators in Qena and Minya governorates to provide them with knowledge on the fundamentals of school leadership and administration.
The team participated in a ground breaking assessment of reading competencies among early grade readers, Arabized and adapted the tool which was used to measure these competencies and developed the first ever early grade literacy program and teachers’ guide under the leadership of international RTI experts and in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.
