The Gasabo School Development Program (SDP) is piloting a ‘whole District, whole School’ approach.  It aims to improve learning outcomes for boys and girls and increase their participation in lessons through learner centered approaches to teaching in public schools in the Gasabo District of Rwanda. The project simultaneously empowers the different stakeholders (teachers, head teachers, Sector Education Officers (SEOs), local leaders and parents) of the school community
for the delivery of quality basic education.

Teacher training in foundational child centred educational competencies is complemented by ensuring educational leaders and the parent community are equipped to provide a framework of support and accountability. The project includs the innovative re-focusing of the roles of head teachers and SEOs towards supervising teaching and learning. ‘Teacher multipliers’ are introduced as peer mentors in schools. These are teachers trained to deliver workshops and provide ongoing support to colleagues on key principles of participation, positive values and cognitive skill development.

The project also provides school and village based training workshops, empowers Parent Teacher Committees and introduces Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) to the parent communities.

The project applies an integrated school improvement approach to improve education quality by involving all key stakeholders.Ensuring that the training will be translated and implemented in practice.
