NEDIS 2017 - From Evidence to Policy & Action: What Works?

As part of its mandate to strengthen partnerships in the education sector, TEP Centre supports education innovators to achieve greater and more sustainable impact. The Nigerian Education Innovation Summit (NEDIS) serves as a platform to strengthen the design, implementation and scaling up of education innovations in Nigeria. On July 10 and 11, 2017, over 150 stakeholders from government, research and academia, development organisations and programmes, donor and other funding organisations, civil society organisations and a broad range of education innovators, gathered for two days of discourse focused on establishing pathways for strengthening the utilisation of evidence in policymaking, practice and citizen action.

The 3rd Nigerian Education Innovation Summit (NEDIS 2017) featured enlightening plenary discussions, engaging breakout discussion sessions, participatory workshops and a hilarious but thought-provoking drama skit. It also featured an exhibition of innovative products and services and enabled excellent networking among delegates. Virtual delegates actively engaged on social media via a web broadcast of the event, and on Twitter with the summit hashtag #NEDIS2017 trending on Twitter for the days of the summit.

NES 2016 - Promoting Citizen Agency in the Nigerian Education Sector 

Following the LEARNigeria initiative pilot launch in March 2015 during the Nigerian Education Summit (NES 2015), the pilot was implemented by The Education Partnership (TEP) Centre and successfully delivered as a public private partnership with over 25 public, private and civil society organisations involved in test development, survey design and methodology, field testing and administration of data collection instruments. The pilot was administered in two Local Government Areas (LGA) in two States: Ikorodu LGA in Lagos state and Ungogo in Kano State. 30 Enumeration Areas were randomly sampled in each LGA in Lagos and Kano states.

Nigeria Education Summit 2015

NES 2015 - Improving Education Quality: The Role of Accountability

The Education Partnership (TEP) Centre, in partnership with the Every Nigerian Child Project (ENCP) hosted the inaugural edition of the Nigerian Education Summit. The summit was held at the Protea Hotel, Ikoyi Westwood, Lagos, Nigeria on Monday March 16th, 2015.

The Summit brought together cross-sectoral stakeholders in the education sector to discourse and deliberate on how to improve the quality of the education system in Nigeria by holding everyone accountable at all levels, and how public and private sector organisations can individually and collaboratively work to improve planning, monitoring and evaluation in the education sector, and how the production of high-quality data in the education sector can be encouraged.

Consequently, LEARNigeria, a new Citizen-led Household Assessment of Learning was launched at the summit. This household assessment of learning is designed to generate data on the foundational literacy and numeracy skills that Nigerian children possess. It is envisaged that the data will not only strengthen education policymaking but also equip a wide array of education sector stakeholders with information and techniques for improving learning outcomes in Nigeria.
