Education sector SWAP


Finland has supported the Education Sector in Mozambique since the year 1997, and joined in the common sectoral fund FASE in 2003. The Finnish funding through the FASE to the Education Sector in Mozambique supports the implementation of the Strategy ESSP III (Education Sector Support Programme III 2012-2016). Through the Common Fund FASE the funds are channeled in 2015 to basic education 54%, secondary education 16%, child education 10%, adult education 2%, vocational education 7% and institutional development (incl. teacher training) 12%. The Education Sector is one of the priority sectors of the poverty alleviation strategy in Mozambique and education is included in the 5-year plan 2015-2019. Attention will be paid to the improvement of the quality of the basic education, for example through development of the teacher and early childhood education and quaranteening the school education of the poorest children. The educational administration will be developed, especially in the provincial level.
