Inclusion of South Sudanese refugees into the national education system (Sudan)

South Sudanese refugees


Sudan’s education policy states that South Sudanese refugee students can enrol in government schools; however, they must first have their learning levels assessed to determine appropriate class placement. As such, Sudan's Ministry of Education, in partnership with UNHCR and UNICEF, has trained qualified teachers to deliver the national curriculum in refugee-hosting schools. This solution is part of the PROSPECTS programme being implemented in East Darfur and West Kordofan, areas that jointly host around 140,000 South Sudanese refugees.
