In focus: Shaping quality education for all
Cambridge Partnership for Education works side by side with governments, international development organisations and other partners to improve the quality of education systems. This can be anything across the education spectrum – from reforming national STEM assessments to virtual teacher training. Jane Mann joined the organisation in 2016 after a career consulting in educational publishing and reform. She became the founding Managing Director of Cambridge Partnership for Education in 2019.
What is coming next?
The global community is going to have to make bold moves to transform education if we are to realise a brighter, more sustainable future for everyone.
For example, learning poverty in low- and middle-income countries has surged to an estimated 70 percent. That means that only 30 percent of 10-year-olds in those countries can read and understand a simple sentence. In low-income countries alone, that goes down to 8 percent. That is absolutely catastrophic, and you can’t easily catch up from that. You have to do something radical, especially post-Covid, if the UN Sustainable Development Goals are to be achieved.
We met with education leaders at the Education World Forum in May 2022, and we have been preparing for the UN’s Transforming Education Summit in September 2022. We plan to bring the full strength of Cambridge to support this necessary and ambitious education transformation.
