International Education

Supporting systemic change to improve learning outcomes

We use evidence-based approaches to strengthen education policy, management, and practice at every level—from classrooms to national ministries—to achieve measurable improvement in education quality and, ultimately, learning outcomes. Our team develops teaching and learning materials for early grade reading and mathematics, and designs and implements professional development programs for teachers and instructional coaches. We employ appropriate and cost-effective information and communication technologies and, building on our experience at the primary school level, we develop and pilot approaches for early childhood education.

Working on behalf of our clients, we develop innovative evaluation and assessment tools and protocols—drawing on our expertise in research and surveys—to inform the design and monitor the implementation of system and school level initiatives. Together with our clients and partners, we are helping strengthen the institutional capacity of education systems around the world.
