Welcome to TEP Centre

TEP Centre is Nigeria’s pioneer education partnership consultancy, specialising in research, design, implementation, support and evaluation of education programmes, projects and initiatives  across the public, private and non-profit sectors. The rationale for TEP is hinged on the need for more effective partnership mechanisms between and across the public and private sectors in sub-Saharan Africa.

At TEP Centre, we believe that education is both a public and private concern and there are roles for each sector in education planning, operation and funding.  Well-designed partnerships not only have the ability to leverage the strengths of each sector, but also to provide equitable access to functional and stimulating education to teeming masses of Africans.

Our vision at TEP Centre is to establish radically enhanced education systems by leveraging the strengths of stakeholders for effective and sustainable partnerships. Our mission is to improve overall the overall design, implementation and evaluation of education initiatives through effective, enduring and scalable partnerships.

The Summit, themed Improving Education Quality: The Role of Accountability, brought together cross-sectoral stakeholders in the education sector to discuss and deliberate on how to improve the quality of the education system in Nigeria through strengthened accountability at all levels. It also stimulated constructive discourse on how public and private sector organisations can individually and collaboratively work to improve planning, monitoring and evaluation in the education sector, and how the country can stimulate the production of high-quality data in the education sector.
