QESP is conceptualized to support the implementation of Egypt’s “Pre-University Education National Strategic Plan 2007/8 – 2011/12”, part of which consists of further strengthening the implementation of the Government’s decentralization policy. The Program’s concept is based on the Ministry of Education’s (MoE) explicit request to create a more comprehensive approach than in previous program phases and to combine the provision of physical infrastructure (Investment Component) with a Social Component (provided by the International Consultant’s Social Experts and NGOs) aiming at improving the quality of education as well as the learning environment.
