Supplementary education in London: Impact, Challenges and Sustainability. An evaluation of the education services of Afghan Association Paiwand

Research Team: Prof Louise Ryan, Alessio D’Angelo, Magdolna Lőrinc

The research project aims to evaluate and compare the effectiveness of the education services offered by Afghan Association Paiwand: supplementary classes for Afghan children, on one hand; and weekend school for children referred by their mainstream schools – who are not necessarily Afghan – on the other. In addition, sustainability issues and funding potentials will be assessed too.

In order to achieve this, we will conduct a series of interviews and focus groups, as well as an analysis and mapping of demographic data.  The research findings will contribute to a better understanding of the key challenges and opportunities facing supplementary education.

This work has been funded through the Third Sector Research Centre.
