Working with UNESCO and district education officials in Pakistan, InterWorks conducted an educational planning and management needs assessment workshop for senior managers in the earthquake-affected areas of North West Frontier Province and Azad Jammu and Kashmir. The workshops focused on emerging planning and management needs faced by district officials as a result of the October 2005 earthquake that destroyed thousands of schools in these areas.
InterWorks developed materials and facilitated the ” Introduction to Education Project Planning and Management ” in Muzaffarabad, AJK from 23-26 May 2006. This workshop was the first in a series of planning and management workshops for senior educational managers in the earthquake-affected districts of AJK and NWFP. The goal of the workshop was to contribute to the overall goal of “build back better” and to provide an opportunity for education officials to discuss their roles and responsibilities with regard to educational planning and management at the district level.
Situation analysis, determination of a challenging vision, setting of priorities to achieve this vision, SMART objectives, objective trees, preparation of PC I, disaster preparedness planning (was most useful).– Workshop participant
