Ethiopia Improving the Quality of Primary Education Program (IQPEP)

The Improving Quality of Primary Education Program (IQPEP), managed by FHI 360, is transforming teaching-learning processes and improving educational planning and management in Ethiopia. IQPEP is a national program and aims to reach approximately 40,000 primary school teachers in 2,615 primary schools. The project focuses on pre- and in-service training that promotes fundamental changes in the teaching-learning processes, including strengthening teachers’ ability to teach reading to young learners. IQPEP has developed and is delivering teacher guides in four Ethiopian languages and English for early grade reading, math and science. By emphasizing active learning and child-centered teaching-learning methodologies, IQPEP aims to increase pupils’ engagement, improve retention and learning, and develop critical thinking skills.
