Project Overview and Role
The Governments of Australia and Indonesia are partnering through INOVASI, an education program which aims to find out how to improve literacy and numeracy for Indonesias students. Funded by the Australian Government in partnership with the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC), INOVASI is a sub-national education program with a budget of AUD 49 million, which started in January 2016 and will run until 2019. It focuses on understanding and tackling learning challenges, particularly those related to literacy and numeracy skills, at the heart of the education system - in the classroom and the school (including madrasah). Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) is INOVASIs first partner province that began implementation in early 2017. Three more partner provinces have been selected (NTT - Sumba Island, East Java and North Kalimantan) and will begin implementation in mid-2017.
INOVASI will use a new approach to focus on what works in classrooms and schools. It will work with teachers, principals and local officials to identify what problems need to be solved to help students learn better and find out the best way to solve these problems by jointly piloting either
