ESSPIN is one of a set of DFID-funded State Level Programmes (SLPs), working in governance, accountability and the delivery of health and education services. DFID-ESSPIN supports federal and state authorities as they work both to reform the governance of education and to improve the quality of education that children receive.
ESSPIN is a partnership between the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) and the Nigerian Government. The eight and a half-year programme (2008 – 2017) supports federal and state governments – Enugu, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Kwara and Lagos – to develop effective planning, financing and delivery systems that will improve the quality of schools, teaching and learning.
By 2017, ESSPIN will have had a significant impact on 11,308 public and non-government schools and approximately 4.7m learners.
