What we did:

In support of the ESSPIN programme (www.esspin.org), funded by UK aid, and implemented by a consortium led by Cambridge Education, Charlie Goldsmith Associates have worked on the design and specification for a pilot for an SMS-based reporting system to monitor teacher and pupil attendance in two Nigerian states. The project aims to provide an easy-to-use text messaging system that will allow teachers to report pupil attendance via SMS to a public facing website in real-time for stakeholders to monitor and act upon.

Attendance figures are being regularly updated as part of the pilot – click here to see how many pupils are in school today.
