ASEW: Accelerated Secondary Education for Women
This video showcases the Accelerated Secondary Education for Women (ASEW) project implemented by Africa Educational Trust in Yambio Town, South Sudan. ASEW supports vulnerable young women who have not been able to attend secondary school due to conflict, poverty and early pregnancy and enables them to complete their secondary school in just 2.5 years. ASEW is a unique approach as it’s the only documented accelerated secondary education programme globally and so provides a model for how secondary education can be achieved efficiently in a low resource and conflict affected area. Lessons are learner-centered and the teachers are trained in active learning methodology and how to scope and sequence the national curriculum to make the best use of time. Lessons take place at flexible times and the school has an onsite child-minder to ensure high levels of attendance even for students with babies. ASEW was initially piloted in Rumbek Town, South Sudan, where the students achieved the highest grades in Lakes State and the 9th highest nationally out of over 200 secondary schools.
