The Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC), under the Directorate General for Teachers and Education Personnel has continuously attempted to reform teacher management. This includes improving teacher intake quality, tracking and increasing teacher competence, matching teacher competence with placement, improving teachers’ distribution, developing pre-service and on-the-job trainings and continuous professional development, diversifying teacher accountability measures and teacher performance evaluation methods, and making teacher allowances performance based.
The World Bank is currently providing MoEC with Technical Assistance (TA) through “KIAT Guru: Improving Teacher Performance and Accountability” project (P167281), hereafter referred to as KIAT Guru Phase 2 (KGP2). KGP2 covers 410 primary schools in five disadvantaged districts. Yayasan BaKTI, a national Non-Government Organization (NGO) implements the Recipient Executed Trust Fund (RETF), with directions from the Steering Committee chaired by MoEC and the National Team for Acceleration of Poverty Reduction, under the Secretariat Vice President Office (TNP2K). In addition, the KIAT Guru Phase 2 (KGP2) will test the mechanisms for implementation in secondary schools, in more urban areas, and using different types of teacher allowances.
The World Bank provides technical assistance to MoEC and TNP2K to develop and analyze the intervention and evaluation designs. To ensure well-monitored program implementation, the World Bank seeks a Data Management Associate to manage the processes related to program implementation progress and research data collection, to maintain quantitative and qualitative data management system, and to contribute to analysis of quantitative and qualitative data.
