A key priority for Windle Trust International in South Sudan in the future will be to explore different ways of improving teaching and learning outcomes in secondary schools as well as to enable more women to enter, and remain in, the profession.

The former Unity State in South Sudan has been the scene of some of the bitterest fighting and terrible acts of violence since civil war broke out in December 2013. With control of the former state divided between competing factions it was impossible for the government to maintain support for schools in opposition-held areas. Teachers could not be paid and crucial activities – such as arranging end of school examinations - could not take place.

Three students discuss conflict resolution

Every year we organise a week-end event which brings together all the UK Masters students to get to know each other and reflect upon their future roles. This year the focus was on conflict management. This theme has a direct relevance to our students since many of them have been, or still are, refugees and all of them are from communities that have been directly affected by war and violent conflict.
