IPA partnered with Ghana Education Services, Ghana National Association of Teachers, and the National Youth Employment Program, to develop and evaluate the Teacher Community Assistant Initiative (TCAI). The initiative recruited teaching assistants from high school graduates in local communities and placed them into government primary schools across Ghana to support pupils in grades 1-3. The first phase tested four different programs: in-school remedial TCAs, after-school remedial TCAs, normal curriculum TCAs, and targeted lessons training for teachers. The Teacher Community Assistant Initiative significantly improved children’s basic skills in numeracy and literacy on average. Of the four interventions, the in-school and after-school remedial TCAs had the largest impact on pupil achievement.
