Call for proposals

Founded in 1968 Education Development Trust (EdDevTrust) has been transforming lives by improving education around the world for 50 years. We improve school systems at scale and provide employability and careers services to young people and adults. We own and manage a portfolio of schools and, as a not-for-profit, we invest annually in our programme of education research that informs policy making around the world as well as our own work.

EdDevTrust  has  been  implementing the  FCDO-funded TARGET  (Technical  Assistance  to  Reinforce General Education Quality Improvement Programme for Equity, GEQIP-E) project in Ethiopia since August 2019, providing targeted technical assistance to the Ministry of Education at Federal, Regional, Woreda and School levels. TARGET programme is designed to complement and amplify the effects of GEQIP-E by improving school and system performance through direct interventions and relevant system strengthening, working on four integrated tasks in which the initiative relating to school to work transition (careers and employability) intervention is part of the programme under Task Three to pilot innovative interventions. This pilot intervention will be undertaken in a total of ten schools from Amhara and Oromia regions to identify workable models at school level in relation to employability and careers. It also aims to provide policy information to the Ministry of Education on preparing students for the future careers and employability.

As part of its effort, EdDevTrust invites suitably qualified and experienced CSOs/NGOs to submit full proposal for funding on a competitive process under its TARGET project grant window.
