Girls Access to Education (GATE) Sierra Leone

Girls Access to Education (GATE) Sierra Leone

GATE (GEC) seeks to support marginalized girls and children with disabilities to reach their learning potential and transition from primary to secondary education and beyond. Recruiting more women into teaching is seen as important for improving and sustaining girls’ participation in primary schooling, particularly in rural areas of Sierra Leone. To address the gap in qualified female teaching staff, The Open University has designed a unique access programme to prepare young women for application to formal primary teacher training. The programme offers distance learning study of core curriculum subjects combined with practical experience in a local primary school.
