NFE-MIS Handbook: Developing a sub-national non-formal education management information system

Most countries have Educational Management Information Systems to monitor formal education, but only in rare cases such systems exist for the non-formal sector. At the same time, the need for reliable information and data on this sector has been increasingly voiced by countries.
In response, UNESCO has developed an easy-to-use methodology for setting-up a Non-Formal Education Management Information System (NFE-MIS). This system responds to the demand for a practical and internationally applicable approach to NFE mapping, monitoring and evaluation which is adaptable to local contexts and information needs.

The purpose of a NFE-MIS is to generate meaningful and reliable information and statistics for use by policy-makers and planners at both national and sub-national levels to allow for informed decision making, better planning and delivery of NFE as well as for monitoring and evaluation of the development of NFE. It further aims at improving the coordination of NFE-programmes among NFE actors by offering a map of NFE provision in the country. Finally, the information available on NFE opportunities generated by the NFE-MIS can help to raise interest and encourage participation in NFE programmes.
