Study of ESSPINs Support to Capacity Development in Basic Education in Nigeria


This report outlines the findings of a study of the support provided by the Education Sector Support Programme in Nigeria (ESSPIN) to capacity development in basic education. The study draws on evidence from ESSPIN’s self-assessment reports, the Composite Surveys, which have collected information on ESSPIN’s impact at school level, and other reporting information. This has been supplemented by primary data collection at the federal and state levels; and in four Local Government Education Authorities (LGEAs) and sixteen schools in Kano and Kwara. The study has examined evidence to try to explain the performance and results of ESSPIN’s capacity development activities, and how capacity development at each level has contributed to school- level impact.
