Programme Evaluation of the Punjab Education Sector Programme

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

DFID Pakistan (DFID-P) hired Semiotics to conduct a programme Evaluation of DFID support to PESP. Objective of the evaluation was to assess what has worked well in terms of planning, management, influence, effectiveness and delivery process of DFID and other donors’ support, as well as to enhance learning and knowledge. The evaluation also spelled out what has not worked well and why. The study informed the design of the DFID’s proposed further support of £200 million over five year to the Education Sector in Punjab and will improve the development effectiveness of DFID-P’s overall education portfolio (£645.5 million for four years).

Both qualitative and quantitative data collection techniques (including interviews, surveys, focus group discussions and field observations) were used to obtain a practical understanding of not just what happened over the period and under these reforms.Nine districts were selected based on geographic representation, population size, well-being and Punjab Government education indicators.  Interviews with district education officials were conducted, comprising a total of 73 such individuals. At the province and programme level, personnel from 8 institutions were also interviewed.

Comprehensive questionnaires were designed by the consultants to guide these interviews, geared towards understanding the programme’s functioning, strengths and weaknesses at various levels.  Information and intelligence gathered was compiled and analysed to determine the progress of the programme vis-à-vis programme planning, management, processes, strategies.
