GIZ and UNESCO have initiated collaboration aiming at providing technical assistance to the Jordanian Ministry of Education (MOE) in their efforts towards inclusion in line with the goals and priorities outlined in the National 10-Years Strategy for Inclusive Education. This partnership is in the framework of the GIZ PROMISE Programme, ‘Promoting quality in inclusive education in Jordan’, funded through the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). ‘PROMISE’ aims at improving equal access to and quality of primary and secondary public schools in Jordan. The programme focuses on school children from KG2 to Grade 10 with particular focus on children with disabilities and is a direct contribution to the national 10 year- Strategy for Inclusive Education (IES) and the Education Strategic Plan 2 2018-2022 (ESP), as well as to SDG 4- Inclusive and equitable quality education, SDG 5- Gender equality and SDG 3- Health. UNESCO will support the following two main components of the PROMISE programme: (1) Policy, National Planning and Management (referred as ‘System Strengthening’); and (2) Capacity Development.


The proposed interventions build on existing efforts by the MoE, the Higher Council for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its development partners, and aim to ensure that the comprehensive legal framework towards greater inclusion and diversity in education is acted upon and leads to measurable improvements in enrolment, retention and completion rates but also in quality of teaching and learning for children and youth with disabilities, from pre-primary to secondary education.
