Project Description Template

A good project is tight, focused, coherent and practical. All activities should directly
contribute to the one or more results included in a Results Framework.

Strategic objective:

● “Improve classroom learning in marginalized regions.”

Relevant IR’s and sub-IR’s for this project (with corresponding Results Framework numbers):



IR indicator stated in QQTP terms (see PowerPoint presentation on indicators)

● By 2024 50% of rural schools have faithfully implemented at least 80% of identified
PGPs.








PART ONE
Complete the table below for each project component/activity cluster. If, illustratively, a project
has 6 components/activity clusters, then six Part One tables should be completed. A menu of
potential project components (activity clusters) is provided in Column One of the Intervention
Design Grid.

successful exit; innovations):


PART TWO
Briefly describe your plans to achieve scale, sustainability and successful exit.

Scale Plan What elements of our project can’t vary (i.e., they should not be
locally adapted)?
● Positive Deviance Inquiry
● Network of Teachers
● Resource Kit
● Strategic Planning Meeting

What elements of our project can be locally adapted?
● Adaptation of PGPs will vary depending on community.
● Strategic plan
● Professional development training
● Method for PD Inquiry

How do we ensure that the elements that can’t vary are always
delivered at the necessary level of quality?
● Monitoring and evaluation on application
● Student learning assessment
● PGP tool belt expansion and dissemination with the
expansion to each site.
● Local networks and M & E Systems are supported with
bridging communication.
Sustainability Plan ● Commitment to community and stakeholder inclusion in
design and sought after outcomes.
● Implementation of School based M & E Systems and
Network of Teacher Leaders by local actors.
● IEELA meets with the Network of Teachers to
troubleshoot issues teachers are having with
implementing PPs.
● The school staff and IEELA will revisit the strategic plan
each year to see how well the schools are implementing
the PPs. If they have not met the goals for year one, the
gaps in the program approach will be modified to reach
the goals for the following year.
● Initial review of program will take place 6 mos after
implementation.
● Program success and/or challenges shared at periodic
meetings with the Ministry of Education.
Exit Plan

Phasing over Exit Plan
● Program administration will be taken over by MoE
● MoE assumes funding & M&E responsibility
● Special Challenges: Capacity development of MoE
Program Directors (training and transfer of program
data)
