OVERVIEW OF THE FUNCTIONS OF THE POST
Background and Justification
Tanzania
was close to achieve universal primary education enrolment in 2014.
However, 13% of the children did not manage to complete primary level
(93% girls and 86% boys). In addition, challenges are found in the
transition from primary to secondary where 45% of girls and 60% of boys
do not progress from primary to secondary education. This brings the
percentage of children that have less than or equal than primary
education to a staggering of 68%. Further, a number of children do not
attend school due to various reasons including poverty, long distance
from home to school and negative social-cultural norms. Children out of
school in Tanzania was reported at 17.65 % in 2018 (World Bank) hence do
not acquire the necessary foundational skills.

Given this challenge, children do not succeed in acquiring the necessary foundation[1]
skills. The Literacy rate among the population aged 15 – 24 years in
Tanzania was recorded to be 87.01% for males and 84.64% for females
(UIS, 2015). Based on these statistics, a large number of population
lack these skills. Traditionally, literacy has been considered a set of
reading, writing and counting skills. This is exacerbated by the digital
world, which calls for new and higher-level competences (Ms Irina
Bokova, 2017) in order to build more inclusive, equitable and
sustainable societies.

It is in this regard that UNESCO Dar es
Salaam in collaboration with the Institute of Adult Education
established 4 ICT Based Literacy Centres in Mkoani, Kasulu, Sengerema
and Ngorongoro Districts. Six hundred and thirty eight (638)
out-of-school adolescent girls and young women were enrolled in and
completed literacy and numeracy classes in 2020 through both
conventional and ICT based approaches. The second ICT based literacy
cohort intake planned for 2021 will adapt approaches that ensures
sustainability of the centres. We are therefore looking for an expert to
draw a sustainability strategy for UNESCO.
