Two Schools in One
Management of high enrollment in refugee secondary schools
The Two Schools in One concept for secondary education is aimed at achieving double enrolment with shared physical infrastructure and teaching-learning materials, including 5 hours of curriculum instruction and 2 hours of co-curricular engagement implemented alternately during every single school day. The introduction of the Two Schools in One concept was first piloted in three schools in 2016 namely Hagadera, Waberi, (Dadaab Refugee Camp) and Vision Secondary school (Kakuma Refugee Camp). The success of the pilot year has led to the adoption of the system by UNHCR and Windle Trust Kenya (WTK) to further scale up the Two Schools in One concept to ensure that the students in the first and second year of secondary school education get to complete the full four- year cycle of secondary education as required by the Ministry of Education in Kenya. In 2016 and 2017 the Two Schools in One concept has enabled the doubling of the intake from 2,560 to 5,118 students.
