Skills and Time

Skills and Time


If there is something we are doing that interests you and you would like to help out with, on a voluntary basis, let us know what it is, how you might be able to help and why you think you’ll be a great volunteer.


Your current organisation may like to support ESSA by sending you or a colleague on secondment, to assist the progress of one of our projects.  If so, simply get in touch with us for an exploratory conversation.


We are building up a small group of high quality advisors to help us in a range of ESSA projects and in building ESSA’s own core capabilities. If you think you may be able to help us let us know. 


One of our first projects is to transform the visibility and accessibility of research conducted by Africans on Education in the region. If you know of some research or are working on some research yourself which you think might be interesting to us and others, let us know.

Let us know your thoughts and what you are doing.

These may relate to one of the existing aspects of our work or be something new. For example you may have done some work on a topic we are working on which you think will be of interest to one of our communities and want to share it.

Alternatively you may have a brand new idea or different way of looking at something you want to share.
