Workforce Transformation

An education workforce for the future

Through the Education Workforce Initiative, the Commission is working with partners to rethink the education workforce. A new research program will identify innovative ways teachers, support staff, district leaders, and others can equip students with adaptable skills for the 21st century.

Financing Transformation

Mobilizing more and better education investments

The Commission is collaborating with countries, multilateral development banks, and partners around the world to mobilize more and better investment in education. The International Finance Facility for Education (IFFEd) is an innovative proposal for education financing that could unlock US $10 billion of new funding in its initial phase, making it possible to get every child in school and learning.

Delivery Transformation

More effective education delivery

Governments around the world are leveraging ‘delivery approaches’ to make rapid progress on results-driven education reform plans, but there is a dearth of peer-reviewed research on these approaches. Through a new research program, the Commission is building evidence, improving understanding, and generating policy recommendations on delivery approaches so countries can deliver better and faster education results.

Learning Transformation

Reimagining learning for the future

The Commission is developing a research-into-action global initiative that tests and evaluates how teachers can harness the potential of adaptive learning software to deliver personalized learning at scale. In combination with effective pedagogies, these more personalized, flexible learning solutions will equip students with the 21st century skills needed for the future of work.

Cross-Sectoral Transformation

Reimagining learning for the future

Amidst compounding global crises and limited resources, we need deep and substantive cross-sectoral collaboration within and outside of education to create a more sustainable, prosperous, and equitable world. Together, we must reimagine how our systems – education, health, agriculture, child protection, energy, and others – can deliver on our promises to this and future generations.
