Myanmar Education Consortium (MEC) is a programme designed to increase access to and quality of early childhood, primary and non-formal education programs in the informal (non-government) and formal sector.
The Myanmar Education Consortium was established in early 2013 to support the provision of education services for under-served children. With an updated strategy in 2016, the MEC adopted a systems-strengthening approach to provide support for the development of ethnic and monastic education systems. The program works with established education providers to place a focus on improving the quality and inclusivity of education in Myanmar through improved retention, completion and learning outcomes; and with a broader range of diverse stakeholders to address key policy barriers to effective education within a coherent, equitable education system. In 2018, the MEC set forward plans for progress against two key objectives to achieve its goal;
Strengthen selected complementary education service providers to deliver quality education services that enable students to achieve improved, accredited learning outcomes.
Support the transition to a more enabling policy environment that brings together a broad base of education stakeholders to promote a diverse and inclusive national education system.
