Education Sector Strategic Plan 2022–2034
The Education Sector Strategic Plan 2022-2034 presents the long-term strategic priorities for the national education system, in line with the country’s national priorities.
The Government of the Kingdom of Eswatini (GoE) is presenting the Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP) for 2022–2034, which serves as the key education policy document in the Kingdom of Eswatini. It presents the long-term strategic priorities for the national education system, in line with the country’s national priorities. Whereas the ESSP establishes the mechanisms required to meet these priorities, the Multi-Year Action Plan 2022/23–2024/25 provides a timeframe for implementing these mechanisms, along with cost and finance simulation models. The ESSP development draws on the findings of previous and ongoing relevant studies, in particular the situation analysis carried out in preparation for the ESSP (World Bank, 2021a). Likewise, all strategic conclusions made for this ESSP are based on the factual Education Sector Analysis by the World Bank (2021a), including resulting findings and recommendations.
The ESSP presents an overarching framework of strategic outputs and outcomes in the education sector, focusing mainly on the next 12 years. The emerging, interlinked Results Framework presented in this first draft will be presented and further discussed at a validation workshop with the Steering Committee, technical task teams and senior management meeting, and then further refined. The ESSP needs to be regarded as a living and dynamic document, with some parts being modified following changing realities brought about by both external and internal conditions. The ESSP will undergo a thorough annual review on the basis of interim evaluations, to assess the extent of which the stated indicators have been achieved.
