About DBE3

*Life skills are skills that enable youth to be resilient, active, and productive members of their community. Ministry of Education categorizes these skills into four groups-academic, personal, social, and vocational

Junior Secondary School Students

DBE 3 will ensure that junior secondary school students are better prepared for life-long learning, entrance into the workforce and participation in community development by training and supporting teachers in target schools. Junior secondary school students will then have increased opportunities to develop and reinforce core life skills in English, civics, and possibly other classes and through extracurricular, local content and self development activities.

  1. Strengthened ability of junior secondary schools to develop life skills through national curriculum
    • Train and support English and civics teachers in target districts to develop and use locally appropriate, life skills integrated syllabi
  2. Expanded opportunities for students to apply life skills through extracurricular activities
    • Provide ideas and facilitate resources if needed so that schools can implement extracurricular (and possibly local content and self development) activities that involve youth in their design and develop and reinforce life skills
  3. More youth make the transition into and remain in junior secondary school
    • Help schools and communities identify reasons for dropout and possible solutions and take steps to reduce dropout and promote retention

Out of School Youth

Out of school youth are better prepared for lifelong learning, entrance into the workforce and participation in community development through training and supporting target NFE providers.

Out of school youth learners in target NFE institutions will then have increased opportunities to develop core life skills through youth centered life skills programs

  1. Improved capacity of non formal education/NFE providers to provide programs for youth that improve life skills
    • Train and support NFE providers so that youth learners in target NFE institutions develop core life skills (personal, social, academic and vocational) through youth centered life skills programs (such as Paket B and other training programs)
    • Train and support target NFE institutions to access and manage grant resources, assess local needs, and design and implement life skills program for youth that authentically involve youth in their design and development
    • Provide/facilitate resources so that NFE providers can implement life skills development activities with youth aged 12-18
  2. Improved “equivalency” program
    • Train and support NFE providers so that youth learners in target NFE institutions develop core life skills (personal, social, academic and vocational) through youth centered life skills programs (such as Paket B and other training programs)

Supportive Environment of Youth Education

DBE 3 will ensure that more supportive environment to improve and sustain the quality of youth education programs is established through active involvement of core trainers at district level, collaboration between target schools and non formal education with private sector and the wider community (locally based non-government and community organizations and parents) and the replication of DBE 3 best practices

  1. Target districts adopt measures that promote sustainability of DBE 3 initiatives
    • Help develop a core of district trainers who can help districts sustain and scale up development and use of life skills integrated syllabi through their training and supervision activities
    • Help target district or provinces develop a core of trainers who can help district sustain and scale up youth life skills related technical support to NFE providers through their training and supervision activities
    • Advocate with DBE district committees to allocate resources to sustain and scale up DBE related activities
  2. Strengthened alliance between private sector, target junior secondary schools and target NFE providers in the provision of programs linked to the development of youth life skills
    • Help develop public-private alliances in target districts to improve local relevance of, and increase resources for, youth life skills development
    • Create public-private alliances that allow DBE approaches to be scaled up to include new activities and new areas
  3. Knowledge and skills built to replicate DBE 3 initiatives centrally and in non-DBE 3 district and provinces
    • Work with Ministry of Education to create approaches, tools, and capacity to support roll-out competency-based curriculum (for formal junior secondary schools and Paket B providers) on a larger scale
    • Facilitate exchange and sharing of best practices to improve project implementation and generate demand for similar activities
