African Education System Consultants are required in Dexis Consulting Group.

Dexis is seeking two individual consultants to implement research on the use of learning assessment data in education sector planning in 2-4 African countries. One consultant will have deep expertise in education sector in francophone Africa, and one consultant will have similar expertise in anglophone Africa. Consultants will implement an existing research plan to explore how data are used in each of its phases.


  • The consultants will examine the use of data generated by national, regional, and international large-scale assessments.

The research will seek insights from a number of different stakeholders. This research study aims to adopt a practice-oriented approach and wants to work with to be determined identified African countries that are currently seeking to improve the use of learning assessment data in planning processes so that research results are of direct use for their ministries of education. The study will aim to produce useful information for national decision-makers and for global actors involved in the development and funding of learning assessments. It aims to produce contextualized knowledge that can be communicated to national practitioners and development partners.

The research will use a combined approach of both primary and secondary information sources. Primary data will be generated from semi-structured interviews, focus group discussions with key stakeholders and direct observations. The multi-actor research design will allow for triangulation of perspectives and interpretations by actor group. Secondary data sources will be generated from a content analysis of documents available at the country level. The combined use of primary and secondary information will again allow for a triangulation of information sources and can thus be expected to increase the overall consistency of the analysis.

  • Collection of both primary and secondary information sources in the selected country.
  • Analysis of data
  • Preparation of interim reports following the completion of stages of research, and of final research reports (country case studies)

Required Qualifications

  • Education: advanced degree in education, international development, or a relevant field
  • Experience: demonstrated experience working with national governments in Africa in the education sector; demonstrated experience with qualitative research methods; demonstrated ability to analyze data and prepare research reports.
  • Language proficiency: one consultant must have working proficiency of English; one consultant must have working proficiency of French.
