ESSPIN worked with a range of partners both in Nigeria and internationally. Partnership working operated at every level of ESSPIN: Federal, State and Community.
At the federal level, ESSPIN worked with the Federal Ministry of Education and the Universal Basic Education Commission. In the states, ESSPIN worked with the State Ministries of Education, State Universal Basic Education Boards and Local Government Education Authorities. The programme directly contracted and built the capacity of 60 civil society organisations who provided support to school-based management committees.
ESSPIN was managed by a consortium led by Cambridge Education. The international partners were the British Council, Save the Children, Oxford Policy Management and Social Development Direct.
ESSPIN also worked with other partners such as UNICEF, OANDO Foundation, Mercy Corps and Discovery Learning.
