Management for Quality Education


“A good quality education is one that provides all learners with capabilities they require to become economically productive, develop sustainable livelihoods, contribute to peaceful and democratic societies and enhance individual well-being. The learning outcomes that are required vary according to context but at the end of the basic education cycle must include threshold levels of literacy and numeracy, basic scientific knowledge and life skills including awareness and prevention of disease. Capacity development to improve the quality of teachers and other education stakeholders is crucial throughout this process.”

Our Vision:

Quality education is the foundation for development. Times Management contributes to an equitable world in which governments are capacitated to respect, protect and fulfil the right to quality education for every learner, without any form of discrimination.

Our Mission:

TIMES Management ensures the improvement of the quality of education:

  • Through capacity building of government education actors and other education actors in India. This is achieved through technical assistance provided by national and international experts.
  • By connecting these actors in India with each other, and connecting actors in the North with actors in the South. This way, TIMES facilitates knowledge exchange between partners with a similar mission.
  • By inspiring education actors in India and Asian Countries on equity-related issues in education, based on worldwide research, experiences and expertise.
  • Values
    • Quality in achievements and learning
    • Integrity in professional relations and in leadership
    • Respect for policies, people and planet
    • Commitment to quality education for all
    • Innovation in facing complex challenges

Six Crucial Dimensions of Quality Education
TIMES Management believes that education leads to empowerment: a process of strengthening individuals, organisations and communities so they get more control over their own situations and environments. Quality education is a crucial factor in combating poverty and inequality in society. In quality education, VVOB distinguishes six dimensions that all interventions of the organisation need to meet.

Equity:
The TIMES Management definition refers to “all learners”. This term refers to non-discrimination and equity. 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. TIMES Management in particular focuses on gender equity.

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, TIMES Management 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.

Sustainability:
Educational change processes often need time to be realised. By enhancing the capacities of local education authorities, TIMES Management 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.
