Counselling and guidance offices set up in 9 pilot schools to prevent school drop-out (UNICEF)

The Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), set up counselling and guidance offices for pupils in 9 pilot schools as part of the Four-Dimensional Model (M4D) programme to prevent school drop-out.

Prefabricated rooms are being used as counselling and guidance offices for pupils exposed to the dangers of dropping out of school in pilot schools in the governorates of Tunis, Manouba, Monastir, Mahdia, KEf and Beja, reads a UNICEF Tunisia press release on Friday.

These offices will help pupils make the most of the necessary services according to the needs of each of them in a bid to counter the drop-put phenomenon.

Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the M4D programme combines structural, pedagogical, educational and organisational prevention and remediation measures to enable a systemic dynamic to reduce dropout.

It includes the setting up of counselling and guidance offices and implementation of pedagogical support mecha
