Designing Training Modules for School Directors
May – September 2003

South America MapThe Morocco Education for Girls (MEG) Project operated in Morocco in two phases- from 1996 to 2001 and from 2001 to 2003. The first phase was dedicated to developing a school environment that encourages learning and enlists community support for education through the development and testing of training guides for pre-service and in-service teachers. The second phase focused on the national diffusion of these training guides and methodologies. The MEG project was deemed successful, resulting in increased girls’ enrollment rates in the 2001/2002 school year.

As a follow-on to the Morocco Education for Girls Project, BEPS is currently designing two additional training modules for school directors for the Ministry of National Education and Youth. BEPS will assess the needs, develop specific topics for the module, and will then pre-test and revise the modules according to feedback from the field. Core teams of trainers will be trained to be able to replicate the training for school directors throughout the country. These school directors will then be equipped to promote a healthy school environment that promotes learning, involves communities in education and results in greater participation of girls in education.

BEPS is also currently collecting, processing and analyzing data. The team will first analyze school data collected at the 33 MEG pilot schools as well as analyzing data on the MEG project training modules. The results of this analysis will be used to better inform the planning of educational programming in Morocco.

Through this follow-on project, the impact and lessons learned of the Morocco Education for Girls Project are integrated into future educational support to Morocco, and school directors will be able to promote learning, community involvement and girls’ participation in education throughout the country.
