SOAS Talk Education Partnership (TEPSOC) is a student-led initiative working to support pupils and educators in Uganda and generate awareness of challenges faced in the Ugandan education sector.
We work closely with the Talk Education Partnership, a small UK charity working in eastern Uganda. The TEP works to provide free professional development training to Ugandan primary teachers - promoting participatory, enquiry-driven learning. Furthermore, the organisation works to conduct research on education infrastructure and assist schools in the provision of resources - from scholastic materials to classrooms and water systems.
As a student society, our activities range from fundraising and advocacy, to active involvement in TEP ops in eastern Uganda. Last year we hosted a range of film nights and discussions, raised £1000 in donations and were actively involved in TEP research in Uganda. As a TEPSOC member you can get involved in a whole range of activities. We'll be hosting a major advocacy event later in the academic year, and we're definitely going to need students to help run our stalls and events in the JCR! If you at all interested to learn more about the activities of the TEP, you can contact us anytime, we'd love to get to know you!
