As delivery approaches bring together management functions in new ways to shift attention from inputs and processes to outputs and outcomes, they are heavily influenced by their context and the goals and inputs which feed into them. There are many different ways to design delivery approaches and integrate them into the broader education system.

As part of our DeliverEd initiative policy brief series, this second paper discusses the core functions of a delivery approach. As the COVID-19 pandemic provides both a challenge to the education delivery and an opportunity to re-examine current efforts and streamline policy implementation going forward, the need to improve education service delivery is greater than ever.

DeliverEd is funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. The Education Commission and the Blavatnik School of Government, with support from the University of Toronto, are leading this initiative. Other partners include IDEAS, Georgetown University’s gui2de, the World Bank, and IEPA.
