Six Crucial Dimensions of Quality Education


Equity in education means that personal and social circumstances such as gender, ethnic origin or family background are not obstacles to achieving educational potential and that all individuals reach at least a basic minimum level of skills.

Contextualisation and Relevance

Quality education cannot be based on a blueprint that is applicable in all situations. Solutions and adaptations of education systems must be based on the real needs of a country and/or community. To guarantee this, MVM evaluates its interventions.

Child-friendly Teaching and Learning

Quality education puts the child in the centre and helps it to reach his or her full potential. Quality Education requires children’s active participation.


Educational change processes often need time to be realised. By enhancing the capacities of local education authorities, MVM aims to institutionalise these processes.

Balanced Approach

Quality education aims at developing a balanced set of capabilities of children they require to become economically productive, develop sustainable livelihoods, contribute to peaceful and democratic societies and enhance individual well-being.

Learning Outcomes

After completing a certain level of education, children must have developed a minimum standard of skills. Quality education requires a results-oriented approach.
