The South Sudan Education Programme (SSEP) is a three year project that
started in March 2011. It is intended that the programme will provide
access for an additional 38,000 children to schools every year.
Implementation of the programme is divided into two components. One
component is the construction of 37 primary and 4 secondary schools with
associated technical assistance in ‘soft’ elements such as the
formation of Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs). The other is the
rehabilitation of 51 Alternative Education Services (AES) Sites with
associated technical assistance plus the construction of six Youth
Education Pack (YEP) Centres and one teacher training/adult literacy
institute. The number of primary schools was reduced to 30 when the
original 'pavilion' design for the primary schools was replaced by a
more traditional design.
This report makes recommendations for building specification changes
for: primary schools, secondary schools, the ongoing construction
programme and for future phases of construction.
