The impact of UK governance programming in Nigeria: Education Reforms in Kaduna State


Working with the Partnership to Engage, Reform and Learn team, Gareth Williams, TPP Director, has co-authored this case study that analyses improvements to primary education in Kaduna State, focusing on the 2009– 2020 period before the COVID-19 school closures. It considers the broad trajectory of education reforms in Kaduna State, and the specific contribution of the Partnership to Engage, Reform and Learn (PERL) and other UK governance and education programmes. The study finds evidence of important improvements to service delivery, including large increases in primary school enrolment and completion rates, particularly for girls.
