The facility is an integral part of the Education Sector Support Program (ESSP). EU’s support to the ESSP also includes a sector budget support along with a Minimum Service Standards capacity development program. Australia’s support is through Australia’s Education Partnership with Indonesia. This report has been prepared with grant support provided by Australian Aid and the EU through ACDP. The institutions responsible for implementation of the study were the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER), the University of Sunshine Coast and Willi Toisuta and Associates (WTA), on behalf of Cambridge Education.
