Instruction in the north of Namibia The Basic Education Programme Namibia (BEP/AfriLa) is based on the long-standing experiences of German development cooperation in the education sector. The programme is implemented by German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) and funded by the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The programme components contribute to the development of the education sector in Namibia as defined by the broad goals for education set by the Ministry of Education:

The support to the Namibian education sector started in the northern Kavango Education Region in 1995, and was gradually extended to all 13 Education Regions over the years. At present BEP/AfriLa comprises of four main programme components in order to support the Ministry of Education:

Support is vertically connected through all levels of the education system: from the Ministry of Education at national level to the regional and circuit level with 13 Regional Education Offices and 56 Circuit Education Offices down to the school clusters, cluster centres and cluster schools creating benefits for all at all levels of intervention.

The German contribution in the current phase comprises essentially technical assistance at the various levels of the education system through structural, organisational and methodological interventions. These are delivered through two seconded long-term experts and two local experts as well as short-term consultants, through capacity building and in-service training workshops for Namibian education officials, through the development and production of teaching and learning materials, and the provision of infrastructure and transport.
