Supporting teachers’ and guidance counselors’ capacity building for improved student psychological care in Algeria

C2D Services is supporting Algeria’s Ministry of National Education through their wise decision to examine the implementation of support measure for vulnerable and at-risk students. This decision is in line with the National Plan for Prevention and Response to School Dropout, a plan that C2D Services equally supports. The decision is even more justified and important in the current context of a health crisis and the amplified collateral effects on these students.

With the funding provided by UNICEF-Algeria, this assistance strengthens the equity, access, and quality of education offered to children and adolescents. The Ministry’s aims to:

• Improve school guidance and the guidance counsellors’ intervention
• Provide intervention models (ethical protocols, student referencing, confidential treatment of aid files, adapted intervention, caring supervision in schools, ...)
• Encourage organizational learning

The technical assistance provide by C2D Services includes the implementation of a learning management system, open to researchers and decision-makers in the field, and recommendations to optimize the reach, benefits, and tools to the 27,000 schools in the country.

Support to the Development of the National Plan for preventing—and responding to—the problem of school dropouts in Algeria

C2D Services was awarded a technical advisory services assignment by UNICEF-Algeria to support the Ministry of National Education, which intends to adopt a National Plan for preventing—and responding to—the problem of school dropouts, with an emphasis on the early detection of children with learning difficulties, as well as on the orientation of dropouts. C2D Services intends to:

 • Contribute to the analysis of qualitative data collected in 8 wilayas particularly affected by this problem;
 • Develop, in a participatory manner, the National Plan for Prevention and Response to School Dropouts (PN / P & R / DS);
 • Conduct pre-experimentation and identify the conditions for implementing the national plan.

With these ends in mind, C2D Services contributes, as a catalyst for development, to mobilize local stakeholders: the National Observatory of Education and Training (ONEF), the National Office of Education and Distance Learning. (ONEFD), the National Institute for Research in Education (INRE), the National Office for Literacy (ONAEA), as well as local authorities (health, social action, vocational training, youth and sports, town hall), the associative movement and the private sector; in addition to two central departments at MEN: that of Cooperation and that of Evaluation and Foresight.
