Supporting the Next Generation of Evaluation Experts in Jordan

MSI’s Jordan Monitoring Evaluation Support Project (MESP) helps the USAID/Jordan Mission assess and improve its programming, develop data-driven best practices, and effectively communicate the Mission’s commitment to accountability and aid effectiveness.

Part of this effort involves strengthening the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) community of practice in Jordan. Jordan MESP is addressing the persistent shortage of qualified entry-level M&E professionals through the development of a 3-month rapid Apprenticeship Program in Monitoring and Evaluation, managed by USAID/Jordan. The program provides targeted skills training courses for Jordanian young professionals and prepares them to join the M&E community within the development sector.

Throughout the program, participants take part in intensive classroom courses, complimented by practical, on-the-job training with USAID’s implementing partners. This innovative approach has already made an impact. From the first graduating class, 12 out of the 13 apprentices successfully found employment in M&E roles within a few months of completing the program. Watch the video below to hear from participants and learn more.

MSI has been one of USAID’s leading Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) service providers for more than three decades. We have successfully managed 23 USAID Mission-level support projects over the last 15 years, including in Pakistan, Jordan, Colombia, South Sudan and Afghanistan.  Our work contributes to USAID’s commitment to rigorous monitoring and evaluation to improve aid effectiveness and inform decision making about current and future programming.

Under these support projects, we deliver a combination of Mission-level strategy support;  performance monitoring technical and advisory services; and design and implementation of performance and impact evaluations.  MSI also designs and manages assessments and special studies; strengthens knowledge management systems; and implements capacity building activities for monitoring, evaluation and learning.
