Chuo Kikuu cha Warwick
Chuo Kikuu cha Warwick

Chuo Kikuu cha Warwick kimekuwa mshirika muhimu kwa ESSA, hata kabla haijaanzishwa.  Kichocheo cha kuunda ESSA kilikuwa uzoefu wa mwanzilishi wake aliyekuwa mwanafunzi wa zamani wa Warwick, Patrick Dunne, katika kuanzisha na kukuza msaada mwingine pamoja na Warwick, Warwick barani Afrika (WIA).  Tangu mwaka wa 2006 WIA imewafaidi zaidi ya vijana 465,000 Waafrika katika maeneo yaliyopunguzwa na ya mashinani kwa mafundisho ya Hisabati na Kiingereza.  Warwick pia ilitoa msaada na hamasisho katika ushahidi wa kwanza wa utafiti wa dhana ya ESSA.

Tangu kuanzishwa kwa ESSA, Warwick imehusika moja kwa moja katika miradi mitatu muhimu:

  • Kama sehemu ya mbinu ya ESSA ya kuweka Waafrika kwenye kitovu cha yote ifanyayo, wanafunzi na walimu katika Warwick barani Afrika (link) wameshiriki katika msururu wa warsha kwa kipindi cha zaidi ya miaka miwili nchini Tanzania na Afrika Kusini. Warsha hizi hazijaimarisha mkakati na vipaumbele vya ESSA tu bali pia zimeongeza sauti imara ya Afrika.   

  • Mradi wa Hali ya Takwimu wa ESSA unafaidika sana kutokana na jukumu la ushauri ambao Profesa Jane Hutton ni kucheza na hatimaye;

  • Tovuti ya kazi za kitaaluma ya Warwick Jobs.ac inashirikiana na Chama cha Vyuo Vikuu Afrika na ESSA ili kuunda bodi ya kazi ya kitaaluma za mtandaoni za Pan-Afrika.
