Geopolitical/SBU/Function overview:

The Arab Spring began in Tunisia and although many citizens are disappointed that there have not been more tangible outcomes from their revolution the Tunisian government and a very healthy CSO sector continues to work towards entrenching democracy and attracting inward investment. This has to be seen, however, against a backdrop of a sluggish economy and high rates of unemployment.

The British Council, meanwhile, has a good reputation in Tunisia and works in the English and Examinations, Education, Arts, and Society sectors, with this latter an increasing priority and often offering client-funded opportunities.

The project

Tunisia has both high levels of youth unemployment and large numbers of unfilled vacancies. This indicates a skills gap, and surveys of employers confirm this.

Teaching for Success, Tunisia is envisaged as a 3-year programme that aims to tackle this skills gap and thus, ultimately, contribute to facilitating a more successful transition from education to employment for young Tunisians. It will do this through a focus on the areas of:

  1. English,
  2. core skills, and
  3. Teaching methodology.

The project will intervene at both practitioner (teacher) and institutional (MOE) levels to deliver three outcomes:

  1. stronger teaching & learning of English and core skills,
  2. reduced gender and regional disparities in education, and
  3. increased institutional capacity of the Ministry of Education.

The project is based on the hypothesis that:

  1. better teaching & learning
  2. greater employability
  3. greater prosperity
  4. greater stability & security

This hypothesis aligns the project to FCO objectives, and the FCO has recently agreed to fund the project, initially for a first phase. The outcomes of this first phase will be a factor in determining continuing FCO funding for subsequent phases.
