The Education Sector Support Programme in Nigeria (ESSPIN) aims to improve learning outcomes for children of basic education age in six states of Nigeria – Enugu, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Kwara and Lagos. Funded by the UK and Nigerian governments, ESSPIN works through a range of activities at the national, state, local and school levels. At the school level, it provides and supports the use of structured training materials for teachers, works with head teachers to improve academic leadership and school improvement planning, and involves communities through the establishment of well-functioning school-based management committees (SBMCs).
