The Quality Education Strategic Support Programme (QESSP) is a four year DFID funded programme aimed at creating an enabling environment to maximise the efficiency and impact of all other programmes in the education sector through capacity building, enhancing policy dialogue and improving the evidence base on impact of education reforms. British Council is the management agent providing technical and management support to the programme.


In September 2016 QESSP, on behalf of the Ministry of Education and DFID, commissioned a scoping study to evaluate whether a delivery system for the education sector could be effective in Ethiopia. Following the recommendation of the scoping study, an external team of experts – international and national- is now mobilized to support the establishment of a delivery system at national and regional levels. A key part of the establishment process involves the set-up of delivery units at federal and regional levels.


The Delivery Unit is responsible for ensuring that the Ethiopian education system delivers on its priority outcome goals by providing intensive guidance and support to the system’s leadership in planning, performance management, problem solving and capacity building. Delivery unit members will be outstanding staff with a strong track record of high performance. The Analyst will provide extensive support to the Delivery Unit and system leadership in managing and analyzing essential performance data within a given sector (e.g. General Education (GE) Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and  Higher Education). The data analyst will be responsible for performing rapid analysis and evaluation of program performance, manipulating large quantities of complex data and distilling the most relevant information to decision makers.

  • Create compelling data analysis presentations for system leaders and decision makers
  • Compile relevant information and deriving best practices for broader dissemination
  • Monitor and analyse performance trends in key metrics, providing insights on strategy and performance in comparison to stated goals and benchmarks.
  • Communicate effectively with other members of the Delivery Unit and stakeholders to ensure that they are kept fully informed on key developments and progress.
  • Build capacity – e.g. by sharing data skills with staff in the Ministry and Regional level , as necessary, to enable them to provide high‐quality inputs into the delivery reporting process.
  • Articulate and reinforce the delivery message and culture throughout the system.
