Who are we?

The Education Partnership Centre (TEP Centre) is a pioneer in the emerging field of education partnership, specialising in research, design, implementation, support and evaluation of education programmes, projects and initiatives across the public, private and non-profit sectors.

What do we do?

TEP Centre specializes in research, design, implementation, and evaluation of education programmes, projects and initiatives across the public, private and non-profit sectors in Sub-Saharan Africa. We strengthen the capacity of key education sector stakeholders to deliver effective sector-wide reforms.

TEP Centre offers the following technical services:

  • Quantitative and qualitative research, including large-scale surveys
  • Strategic planning and advisory including scaling up support
  • Policy planning and road-mapping
  • Programme design and adaptation
  • Monitoring, evaluation and learning
  • Project management
  • Training and capacity development
  • Education event management

TEP Centre hosts the annual Nigerian Education Innovation Summit (NEDIS) which convenes implementers of education innovations, funders, researchers and development partners, in order that effective education innovations can achieve greater and more sustainable impact.

As a means to address gaps in education sector accountability, TEP Centre initiated LEARNigeria; a citizen-led household assessment and advocacy programme. The programme aims to determine foundational numeracy and literacy competencies of children in Nigeria and strengthen the agency of government and community stakeholders to take action which will strengthen teaching and learning in Nigeria. The programme is now designed and implemented by TEPLEARN in collaboration with several federal, state and local government institutions, as well as private sector organisations, and civil society organisations.
