Read about TaRL Africa’s Learning Agenda: “The goals of TaRL Africa’s Learning Agenda are to focus our own process of improvement and to catalyse useful learning (and open sharing of these lessons) for all stakeholders involved in TaRL programmes across the continent. This document shares the TaRL Africa team’s current priorities for learning how to adapt and improve the approach at scale across the continent. The document also shares these ideas and remaining questions with other partners interested in the TaRL model. We hope that our partners will engage with the document to communicate their priorities, suggestions, and further questions. We envision this to be a continually evolving agenda for learning across many TaRL teams and partners.”
