Fiscal Year 2015: Interim Results Report. Highlights. Volume I
Global Partnership for Education
It is the aim of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) to improve access, equity, and learning outcomes for all. It seeks to contribute to improvements in the number of children completing primary and lower secondary levels of school in GPE partner countries; to lower the number of children out of school; and to improve education quality, as measured by the percentage of trained teachers at the primary level. In 2014, the Global Partnership for Education Secretariat adopted an interim results framework that it developed in partnership with the U.K. Department for International Development. This report documents 2015 achievements against the milestones set out in the interim results framework. It captures trends at the impact and outcome levels, where the Global Partnership aims to contribute to stronger learning outcomes and improved equity for all, primarily in the basic education subsector. The report also considers progress towards key outputs in at least four levels: among GPE developing country partners (DCPs); within partnership dialogue mechanisms at the country level; at the level of GPE grants; and in the organizational effectiveness of the Secretariat itself. On balance, the report shows that the Global Partnership has achieved the vast majority of the output targets established for FY2015 in the interim results framework. On a total of 15 output indicators, 11 were met in full; three others were met in substantial part; and one was not met. Of particular note, excellent progress has been made in improving the Global Partnership's organizational effectiveness (Output 5), and in producing tools, templates, and methodologies that establish minimum standards and can be used to improve quality assurance of education sector plans, grants, and country-level processes (Outputs 1, 3, 4, and 5). As a result of the organizational review and subsequent changes in the Secretariat organization, these developments have also been accompanied by increased capacity and consistency in the support provided to country-level partners in both grant processes and sector dialogue. The report draws attention to the need for a redoubled effort at the impact and outcome levels. It suggests that progress toward improved equity and access across GPE partner countries has slowed between 2012 and 2013. This overview of the GPE Results Report document presents a synopsis of the key findings. The full report is organized into two volumes. The first volume presents a synthesis of achievements against expected targets and the impact, outcomes, and outputs. Data appear in six chapters. Following the introduction and overview, Chapter 2 reviews progress at impact and outcome levels; Chapter 3 details findings for Output 1; Chapter 4 for Output 2; and so on to Chapter 7, on Output 5. Volume II of this report includes supporting documentation, including the methodologies, baseline analysis, and related tools, guidelines, and templates. Volume II is available upon request from Global Partnership for Education.
