Training on school development has been conducted for development teams at the school level. The training involved 1,634 participants (154 of them were females) from 49 districts. School development teams have been trained on planning, implementing and managing operating budgets and financial records, monitoring, evaluating, clearing, submitting financial reports and school development. The training has been conducted in 82 training centers and lasted for six days. 

This activity is one of the major activities under the school-based development intervention. The allocated budget for implementing this activity was insufficient. After several discussions between Education Sector, GPEU and UNICEF the additional amount required for conducting the training has been covered using the budget allocated for training on the electronic follow-up program and school by-law.

The draft guidance manual for extra-curricular activities has been developed. The manual is yet to be enriched and approved. After that, it will be printed and delivered to the specialists in the developed schools targeted by the program.

On the other hand, a two-day workshop has been conducted to judge the training manual for women life skills. The workshop has been implemented in coordination between the Educational Research and Development Center and the Girls Education Sector at MoE. This manual will be used to train women supervisors in the developed schools who will in turn train the female students on these skills.
