VVOB, The Flemish Association for Development Cooperation and Technical Assistance (VVOB) is a Belgian non-profit organisation that focuses on improving the quality of education. VVOB, in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Training (MINEDUC), Rwanda Education Board (REB) and the University of Rwanda – College for Education (UR-CE), implements the Multi-Year project “Leading, Teaching and Learning Together (LT2)/Umusemburo w’Ireme ry’Uburezi project” (2018-2021). This project aims at enhancing school leadership and to set up an induction system for new teachers.
The project is implemented in 14 districts (approx. 744 schools). School Head Teachers, Deputy Head Teachers, Mentor Teachers and STEM Subject Leaders will be enrolled as direct beneficiaries in Continuous Professional Development Courses on school leadership, coaching and mentoring and will engage in Professional Learning Communities (PLC) at the level of the administrative sector and in schools.
To measure the effectiveness of the interventions, to provide ongoing feedback to project implementers and to support continuous quality improvement, a Rapid Cycle Evaluation (RCE) is planned, blending quantitative and qualitative research approaches. In addition, and complementing the Rapid Cycle Evaluation, a particular learning question related to the Theory of Change underpinning the project will be explored in more depth.
