About Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) Africa
TaRL Africa is a newly formalised partnership between Education NGO, Pratham, and research centre J-PAL, who have been working together developing cost-effective, scalable literacy and numeracy interventions for more than 15 years. The fruits of these efforts have been the development of what we now refer to as the TaRL methodology.
The TaRL approach, pioneered by Pratham, helps children develop basic reading and numeracy skills. In the TaRL classroom: children are assessed on basic reading and numeracy using a simple tool; grouped by learning level, rather than by grade, for a dedicated time when they focus on building foundational skills through activities and materials appropriate for each group. As children progress, they move to the next learning group and continue to grow.
TaRL Africa aims to reach 3 million children in the next five years. Key countries of operation include Kenya, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria and Zambia.
About the TaRL Programmes in Nigeria
The implementation of TaRL programmes in Nigeria began in 2018 in one state but has now spread to five states across Northern Nigeria. TaRL programmes aim to build foundational literacy and numeracy skills of children in upper primary grades, largely targeting Primary 3 to Primary 6 pupils. The programmes are primarily implemented by state governments in partnership with TaRL Africa and other partners.
