DFID Education Policy Get Children Learning
DFID’s new education policy calls for a united effort by global and national leaders to address the learning crisis and ensure poor and marginalised children - who face the greatest challenges - are not left behind. Their response is to tackle the learning crisis at its root; getting children to learn the basics of literacy and numeracy, as well as transferable skills. They will focus on three priorities:
- Invest in good teaching: support decision-makers ready to take a fresh look at teacher training, recruitment and motivation to tackle the huge shortfall in skilled and motivated teachers
- Back system reform which delivers results in the classroom: help teachers to succeed by making education systems more accountable, effective and inclusive, supported by UK expertise.
- Step up targeted support to the most marginalised: ensure they benefit from education, particularly hard-to-reach girls, children with disabilities and those affected by conflict and crisis.
