TEP LEARNigeria Initiative (TEP LEARN) is the newly formed non-profit arm of The Education Partnership Centre. TEP LEARN is focused on improving the accountability of the education sector through supporting citizen-led assessments and engaging in high level research and advocacy efforts. This final grant to TEP LEARN is focused on continued support to a leading anchor institution for the education sector in Nigeria. During this final phase of MacArthur funded work, TEP LEARN is working towards: (1) demonstrating the efficacy and scaleability of LEARNigeria as a model for strengthening public sector accountability and transparency in the education sector; (2) conducting research and development on various communication/dissemination strategies that generate action amongst differing stakeholders; and (3) growing internal capacity for strategic communication planning in order to build expertise and position the organization to provide ongoing organizational support for other education entities based in Nigeria. Through these linked activities TEP LEARN expects to influence stakeholders, create advocacy momentum, push for accountability measures, and build the capacity of the wider education ecosystem.
