Call for proposals – Endline Evaluation of Girls’ Education Challenge programme in Zimbabwe

Plan International UK is seeking an experienced external evaluator to lead the Endline Evaluation of the Supporting Adolescent Girls’ Education (SAGE) programme in Zimbabwe, a UK Aid-funded programme within the Girls’ Education Challenge portfolio.

The Supporting Adolescent Girls’ Education (SAGE) programme is a five-year programme which commenced in August 2018 and will close in July 2023. SAGE aims to achieve improved learning outcomes and assist transition into formal education, training or employment for 13,200 highly marginalised, out-of-school adolescent girls in 11 districts across Zimbabwe. As a gender transformative education programme, SAGE seeks to work at multiple levels to promote and improve education for girls by tackling the root causes of gendered social and economic barriers and to create an enabling environment for transforming unequal gender norms.

The programme, led by Plan International UK, is implemented through a consortium of faith-based, academic and private sector partners which include Plan International Zimbabwe (PIZ), the Open University (OU), Christian Blind Mission (CBM) UK, the Apostolic Women’s Empowerment Trust (AWET) and ECONET.  The programme is implemented under the oversight of the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education (MoPSE).

Plan International UK is recruiting an external evaluator to lead a mixed-methods, gender sensitive and participatory Endline Evaluation, with a focus on SAGE’s three core outcomes of learning, transition and sustainability. We welcome flexible and creative approaches that assess the impact of the programme, generate meaningful learning and include the voices of girls, communities and other key stakeholders.

Further requirements can be found in the ToR.

Plan International UK invites bids from Evaluation Teams with the experience and skills described in the ToR to submit the following application documents to no later than 17.00 (UK time) on Friday 12th August 2022.

Applications should include:

  • A technical proposal that includes the sampling strategy, intended methodological approach, proposed timeframe and detailed workplan;
  • A financial proposal that covers all consultancy related costs (enumerator team, data collection, data entry, data analysis, administrative costs etc.) in PDF format;
