Education Framework Workshop and Retreat


Education Framework Workshop and Retreat

14 January 2019 to 15 January 2019

In the new ADB Strategy 2030 (S2030), improving education and training is under the operational priority on addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities. To align with S2030, ADB's Education Sector Group (EdSG) brainstormed on an Education Framework that will guide ADB operations in the sector. This sector-specific framework being prepared will consider the following priority areas: learning outcomes, education to enhance employability and job readiness of graduates, lifelong learning and training opportunities, use of ICT solutions to provide quality education and training, foundational skills, including digital literacy and soft skills, and technical and vocational education and training (TVET).

This education framework will replace Education by 2020: A Sector Operations Plan and will communicate ADB’s support for the sector while guiding the design of education projects in the context of S2030.
