We work with governments, teachers, school leaders and civil society partners to improve the quality of school education for children and young people. By promoting quality education, sharing international best practice and facilitating dialogue between policy makers, practitioners and education leaders, we influence whole-system reform to help improve learning outcomes.
We enhance school leadership and management through coaching, mentoring and reflective learning and develop school leaders and managers to deliver improved learning outcomes and implement school development plans. We produce training materials and curricula to support high-quality leadership training. Our teacher development programmes entail working with professional development institutions and governments to develop new training curricula and materials and to support the effective delivery of training for teachers. We focus on participatory learning and on sharing the latest pedagogical practices from across the world.
We support national and local governments and development partners to deliver education reform programmes, focusing on the development of governance and accountability systems, the development of national frameworks and standards, quality assurance and inspection services and public financial management. We support governments and organisations with curriculum development and assessment systems by designing and implementing national assessment systems, establishing national assessment centres and implementing Education Management Information Systems.
