Education in Nigeria

Connected Development (CODE) with support from the MacArthur Foundation on Monday, 28 January 2019 trained officials from the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and 23 educational secretaries of local government areas in Kaduna state, Nigeria. The training entitled “Monitoring and Evaluation in Basic Education Governance” aimed to equip these officials with skills on basic education governance. This is part of the #followthemoney model where CODE works with state actors to improve transparency and accountability.

Some of the facilitators were Dotun Babayemi, Abdulrauf Aliyu, and Chambers Umezulike. The sessions covered major themes of accountability such as policy implications of tracking Universal Basic Education Spending, trends on comparative basic education and emerging innovative ways of learning. Other sessions highlighted comparative analysis monitoring and evaluating systems in the education sector and, human capacity for monitoring and evaluation systems. It is expected that participants use these skills to deliver better impact assessment systems.
