School of Education contributions to the 2021/2 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report: Non-state actors in education: Who chooses? Who loses?

We are pleased to report that amongst the contributions to the 2021/2 UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report on Non-state Actors in Education was a background paper from School of Education colleagues, Yulia Nesterova and Queralt Capsada-Munsech, concerning Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). This background paper is available online at this link.   The sites for the background paper were those of the Centre for Sustainable Healthy Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods, and a short summary can be found at this SHLC link. The GEM report as a whole, and Yulia and Queralt’s background paper are also attached for the convenience.

Furthermore, The Education and Development Forum (UKFIET) will hold a UK launch of the report, examine the UK findings and analysis from this report, and discuss what lessons these experiences hold for other countries. The event will held on Wednesday March 2, 2022, from 10:30-12:30 PM GMT in hybrid Format, Online and in Tesla Room, Broadway House, Westminster, SW1H 9NQ. You can register at:  

The aim of the event is to:  

  • Present the report’s main findings and recommendations with key stakeholders.  
  • Explore concrete examples of approaches taken by the UK to engage with non-state actors in education (both domestically and internationally) in laws, policies and regulations, aimed to promote equity and quality and what lessons can be drawn for others. 
  • Invite participants to rally around the report’s recommendations, calling for all actors to adhere to the principles of equity, quality and accountability, to support governments in delivering on SDG 4.  

The interactive discussion will include two high-level panel discussions featuring representatives from teachers unions, UK government, civil society and academia.
