Partnership for Learning for all in Nigeria

Funded by:FCDO | Duration: November 2021 – October 2026

PLANE is a 7-year, £95m programme funded by the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and represents one window of intervention in a broader package of investment intended to enable a more inclusive and effective basic education system in Nigeria. It seeks to do this through improvements in teaching and learning with a focus on foundational skills through: 

  • Unlocking governance bottlenecks for better education service delivery. 
  • Improvements in the regulation of the non-state sector and through embedding the use of data and evidence within the education system. 

PLANE has four primary outputs:  

  1. Teaching & learning: evidence-based teaching and learning approaches & materials in use, in better managed performance focused schools and teaching colleges. 
  2. Governance of state systems: improved planning, personnel management and public financial management practices.  
  3. Governance of non-state systems: improved management and performance of the non-state sector; and 
  4. Use of evidence and communication: effective generation, communication, and use of evidence to inform citizen engagement and improve service delivery. 

PLANE will work in Kano, Kaduna and Jigawa, the Southwest (subject to FCDO confirmation), Southeast (subject to FCDO confirmation) and the federal capital territory.
