Audit on contract teachers in Niger

The provision of quality education to all citizens through a qualified teaching force is a priority for the highest decision makers in Niger. The Parliament has requested the ministry in charge of education to undertake an audit of contract teachers who represent over 70% of the teaching force in the country. Neither a good teacher management system nor the protection of the teachers’ professional status could be ensured without this exhaustive audit.

MissionNiger1In response to the ministry of education’s request, the Task Force, ADEA and UNESCO will mobilize the technical expertise to support the process. Under the coordination of the Ministry of Education, the audit's documents and timeline will be adopted during a stakeholders' meeting scheduled for August 2013. The process was launched during a recent joint mission to Niamey where the authorities and particularly H.E. Mme Ali Mariama El hadj Ibrahim, Minister of Education, literacy and national languages, insisted on the importance of the audit to stabilize a teaching force dominated by contractual teachers (over 70%).

The objective of this audit is to carry out a thorough census of contract teachers; their deployment; identify their mode of recruitment modes and level of qualification; assess their level of motivation; and make recommendations for the professionalization of the teaching force.

Other partners supporting the educational system, notably UNESCO-Dakar and local stakeholders, including the teacher unions will be involved in the process.
