The IB is part of a consortium which implements the qualitative component of the Schools Modernisation Programme in Tunisia funded by the European Investment Bank (EIB). The project supports Tunisia’s programme to modernise the country’s educational infrastructure. It aims to improve the execution of the investments while strengthening existing capacities at both central and regional level. It will strengthen ownership and responsibility over the schools by the community of students, parents and teachers. Finally it addresses discipline at schools, thus reducing vandalism and bringing positive impacts in terms of students’ learning outcomes.
