IPA Côte d’Ivoire is seeking to recruit a qualified Temporary Research Associate for 5 months base in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, to work on diagnosis study in the pre-primary education area.

Conversations between Ark EPG and the Ministry of Education (MoE) in Côte d’Ivoire have highlighted a strong Ministry interest in (i) understanding the quality of current pre-primary providers and, based on this information, (ii) developing a pilot with the non-state sector to improve pre-primary education access and quality. The goal of the study is to generate new evidence on pre-primary education in Côte d’Ivoire to inform policy debates, and to develop a pilot with the MoE. In a first phase, IPA in collaboration with Ark EPG will undertake a mapping exercise and conduct surveys of pre-primary schools in selected urban areas.

The role of the Research Associate will be to finalize the research tools, coordinate field work including both the listing and survey of pre-primary schools, clean the data, write a field report and contribute to delivering descriptive statistics.
