Consultancy | Synthesize curriculum analysis for Primary mathematics in Uganda.

Under its’ “What Works in Education” program, Twaweza East Africa has for the last three years been conducting an analysis of the effectiveness of the primary education curriculum in Uganda.

Using the Surveys of Enacted Curriculum (SEC) approach, we descriptively analyzed the content that is embedded in the primary curriculum syllabus documents and recent Primary Leaving Examinations (PLEs). We also piloted a survey of teachers’ instructional content and practices, involving teachers from Wakiso and Iganga districts. Finally, we conducted alignment analyses to establish the extent to which the content reflected in the syllabus documents matches what is delivered in the classroom and examined at the end of the seven-year primary cycle.

We are now at a point where we need to synthesize the insights gained from the above analyses of the intended, taught and assessed curricula. Accordingly, Twaweza seeks to engage a suitable consultant to undertake this work of synthesizing the above evidence for Primary Mathematics in Uganda. We now seek a data management firm to specifically undertake the following;

  1. Review and critique the available SEC and other analysis evidence on primary mathematics curriculum effectiveness1 in Uganda.
  2. Reflecting on content progression, alignment and some cross-cutting aspects, develop evidence-informed narratives for improving curriculum effectiveness and future policy reforms.
  3. Deriving from your experience and expertise in Uganda’s primary mathematics context conduct relevant integration and synthesis of the SEC outputs, reports and narratives.
  4. Write an easy-to-read evidence-informed policy paper on the primary education mathematics curriculum in Uganda.
  5. Prepare and present the policy paper at fora organized by Twaweza.

To apply, submit a brief proposal of not more than five pages (include both the technical and financial aspects) strictly by email to and copy to
