About

Purpose

The Ministry of Education and Higher Education made a commitment, documented in the strategic plan, to improve the quality of education utilizing ICT tools and methods. Several projects were developed and started to provide infrastructure in the schools to meet two of the four strategic goals, namely; a) Education for a Knowledge Society and b) Governance of Education. However, due to the war July 06, this effort was delayed but still MEHE managed to put it back on track and the strategic plan has been delivered to the Council of Ministers.

 

In parallel to this, MEHE has been the recipient of significant aid, in the aftermath of the July war, to reconstruct schools, its equipment as well as the entire Educational system with a big portion of this aid going to ICT equipment.

 

As a result and to help achieve the above, the objectives of the project include building up the MEHE capacity for strategic planning as well as supporting and ensuring the maintenance for all MEHE ICT infrastructures, guaranteeing the creation of a modern organisation that is able to drive the education system towards information age and setting up an Information Management Unit (IMU) able to perform a wide mandate related to the management of all ICT projects in MEHE.

 

Our main target and partner in this project is the MEHE, providing full cooperation and full support of all activities related to the project, full political support and logistics according to its capacities. It will also host the IMU and its antennas in the regions and provide it with premises, furniture and logistical support. In addition, CERD will be a main contributor for data on schools, curricula and training.
