Promoting Equality in African Schools (PEAS) is a rapidly growing charity that aims to widen access to education in Africa by founding and developing sustainable, low-fee secondary schools. PEAS has now established several schools across Uganda.
To ensure PEAS schools provide the best possible learning outcomes PEAS recruited and employed an expert Director of Educational Excellence, half-funded by Avonbrook for four years.
This role has been introduced to drive improvement in teaching and learning across the PEAS network.
This position was able to have an impact on the education of up to 6000 students within the three years. The role included direct teacher training and observation, the facilitation of teacher training workshops, formative educational inspection and assessment and consultancy for senior education side staff within the PEAS network.
Since Avonbrook made the grant, the excess revenues generated by existing PEAS schools has been able to fund the salary in its entirety.
