Project Overview and Role

The Governments of Australia and Indonesia are partnering through INOVASI, an education program which aims to find out how to improve literacy and numeracy for Indonesia's students. Funded by the Australian Government in partnership with the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC), INOVASI is a subnational education program with a budget of AUD 49 million, which started in January 2016 and will run until 2019. It focuses on understanding and tackling learning challenges, particularly those related to literacy and numeracy skills, at the heart of the education system' in the classroom and the school (including madrasah). Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) is INOVASI?s first partner province that began implementation in early 2017. Three more partner provinces (NTT ? Sumba Island, East Java and North Kalimantan) have begun implementation in mid-2017.
INOVASI will use a new approach to focus on what works in classrooms and schools.. It will work with teachers, principals and local officials to identify what problems need to be solved to help students learn better and find out the best way to solve these problems by jointly piloting either (i) local solutions or (ii) practices successfully trialled elsewhere which are adapted to the local context. INOVASI will evaluate these pilots to see which are successful in improving student literacy and numeracy. The pilot activities will focus on student learning and classroom teaching. The three areas of focus are:
  1. Strengthening the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom; 
  2. Improving the support provided to teachers so they can teach better; and 
  3. Enabling all children in the classroom, particularly girls and children with disabilities, to reach their potential in learning INOVASI is managed by Palladium on behalf of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
