Consulting Services

The Partnership is designed to serve as a catalyst for transforming education. It will need to ensure its demand-driven approach and expansion and evolution. Thus, the technical assistance (TA) will include a pool resource arrangement for consultants. This is important to ensure flexibility and operational latitude for the TA to respond adequately to the needs of Partnership implementation. Similarly, to ensure flexibility and responsiveness in line with the evolution of the Partnership implementation, all TA consultants will be engaged individually. ADB will engage the consultants in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). Total person months for international and national consultants are 45 and 50 person months respectively.

Expertise will be needed to support the ideas incubation markets process, and organization of other participatory and consultative events and activities. Given the strong emphasis on effective knowledge generation and sharing in the Partnership, the TA will include research expertise to support the design and implementation of studies on new strategies and approaches in education, and production of related knowledge products in user-friendly formats, including dissemination though social media. Operational expertise will be needed to guide the design of innovative pilots in education in developing member countries (DMCs). Operations evaluation expertise will also be needed to help evaluate the transformative impact of the pilots, and their sustainable scalability in technical and financial terms. The TA team also will include experts in education sector planning to assist DMCs transform education services through formulation of appropriate policies and strategies, and to help strengthen collaboration capacity for implementation of innovation and new approaches in education.
