- Policy and Plans
The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) is the government agency for education policy, management and development in Malawi. Under MoEST, the Department of Teacher Education and Development (DTED) is concerned with the continual professional development of teachers in order to effectively deliver quality education at all levels. The Malawi National Examinations Board (MANEB) is responsible for developing, administering and processing valid and reliable national examinations for professional certification in Malawi.
Public spending on education was 4.6% of GDP in 2010.
The national strategy for education highlights increasing access to educational opportunities for all Malawians at all levels of the system; raising the quality and relevance of education; reducing inequalities across social groups and regions, including offering bursaries to girls and women, children with special needs and those in rural communities, to improve the participation of such groups in formal education; and pursuing the principle that those in society who can afford it should contribute to the cost of education provision.
Malawi qualified for the World Bank’s ‘Fast Track Initiative’ – known since September 2011 as the Global Partnership for Education – which is aimed at meeting the education Millennium Development Goals and the Education for All goal that all children complete a full cycle of primary education by 2015. Since 2002, under the initiative developing countries have committed to design and implement sound education plans and development partners commit to align and harmonise additional support around these plans.
