Overview

The Ghana Education Outcomes Programme aims to improve the enrolment levels of out-of-school children and learning outcomes in public schools across both rural and urban Ghana.

BOP has partnered with two organisations – Rising Academy and School for Life – to deliver this exciting programme. As well as learning and enrolment outcomes, the collaboration is also tackling dated systemic challenges in public schools, such as lack of teacher ownership and capacity of voluntary teachers.

The programme targets the enrolment of out-of-school children through the Accelerated Learning Programme (ALP), and improves learning outcomes in public schools through its Mainstream School Improvement Programme (MSIP) – across both rural and urban areas of the country.

 

Outcomes

Over 31,500 students have begun this programme, which is currently in its early stages of implementation. As it progresses, we will update this page with outcomes achieved. Stay tuned!
