In April 2017, the Global Partnership for Education Secretariat approved the following grant:

US$361,000 for Sierra Leone to develop an education sector assessment and update the current education sector plan

The Education Sector Plan Development Grant will allow Sierra Leone to update the current education sector plan to be effective until 2020 through desk review of available reports studies, consultation with stakeholders and reflecting activities included in the Presidential recovery plan responding to emerging needs after the Ebola crisis. The grant will also help provide technical assistance to conduct an education sector assessment.

UNICEF, a key partner of the Global Partnership for Education, has been nominated by the local education group to be the grant agent on behalf of the Government of Sierra Leone.

Education Sector Plan Development Grants from the Global Partnership for Education are intended to help countries perform strategic, consultative and analytical work to develop or revise their sector plan. Of the maximum grant amount of US$500,000, US$250,000 is reserved for education sector analysis, and the remainder for additional studies or to develop the sector plan.
