18 July 2016 to 30 December 2016


Country: Kosovo (Serbia)

Start date: July 2016

End date: December 2016

Implementation partners: UNICEF Kosovo and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST)

Financial partners: UNICEF Kosovo 



The revision of Education Indicators Framework took place from July 2016 to December 2016. The purpose of this project was to provide technical assistance to Kosovo’s* Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST). This allowed the improvement of evidence-based planning and policy-making through the review of education indicators calculated for the year 2015/2016.

In 2008, UNICEF, with the support of IIEP, provided technical assistance to the MEST for the development of the Education Indicators Framework. Additional support by IIEP was provided in 2013 through a review of the Education Indicators Report prepared by the MEST. The Education Indicators Framework has been aligned with the Education for All indicators. Education indicators have been calculated and published biannually at a national level by the MEST/EMIS. The education indicators are internationally comparable and provide the information about the education sector in Kosovo*.
