Global Partnership for Education | Media Collaboration (tbc)
Blueprint9 aims to offer multimedia teaching workshops to college students, documentary coverage, marketing + public relation materials for GPE Nigeria. We are currently working towards arrangements and commencement of our efforts with collaboration with an external sponsor.
The GPE grant of US$100 million is supporting the Nigeria Partnership for Education Project (NIPEP). The project primarily focuses on supporting the five states mentioned earlier in the implementation of their education sector plans.
The three main components supported by the GPE grant are:
- Improving the effectiveness of schools and learning outcomes by providing grants to support school improvement plans and teacher professional development.
- Supporting the inclusion of girls in basic education and promoting gender equality through providing cash transfers to encourage girls’ participation, scholarships for women to attend colleges of education, capacity-building and operational support on issues affecting girls’ retention and gender sensitivity.
- Supporting robust monitoring and evaluation, regularizing the annual assessments of student learning, and financing impact evaluations of school improvement grants and girls’ scholarship programs.
The federal ministry of education and the ministries of education of the five selected states lead the program in partnership with the World Bank as the grant agent. USAID is the coordinating agency.
Even though the implementation of the project with GPE is at its early stage, the grant has already contributed to significant results including:
- 1,800,000 direct project beneficiaries, of which 25% are female.
- 100% of all pre-primary and primary schools have received grants in the first year.
- 73% of beneficiary schools have implemented 80% or more of their school improvement plan activities in December 2016 against 41% in mid-June 2016
- 2,803 Nigeria Partnership for Education Project (NIPEP) school grants have been awarded to pre-primary schools.
- 2,000 early grade teachers have successfully completed training with NIPEP funds.
- 32,850 girls have received NIPEP scholarships
- 4,806 school management committees have been trained
