This training manual is designed by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs Capstone Team in conjunction with STIR Education Uganda to assist their efforts in enhancing data management and action planning capacities for Education Leaders (EL) participating in the Learning Improvement Cycle program. This training manual is motivated by the participants’ eagerness to build their data management skills to make more informed decisions that improve academic performance in their respective districts. Additionally, data management skills are transferable to other government functions. The envisioned outcome of these training sessions are more empowered and motivated participants who can use data to drive academic improvement.
Drawing from training examples in various sectors, this training manual was designed to offer flexibility for trainers to custom design sessions according to the context of Ugandan school districts. Based on our meetings with STIR Uganda, and findings from a review of data management literature, our analysis of the STIR Uganda data management structure and current practice revealed 5 Key Considerations (Figure 1) which is the foundation supporting the design of this manual and the activities therein. This tool is useful for training design teams, and can be used as an exercise to thoroughly design activities that consider participants’ challenges and motives, and resource and time constraints facing STIR Education Uganda.
