In many places, achieving quality education for everyone can be a significant challenge. Girls and marginalised groups are not always encouraged to stay in school, while the quality of the education system may be constrained by limited resources. Improving the education system has the potential to empower communities and create lasting social and economic change.

Our education experts work closely with clients and in-country partners to deliver effective projects. We strive to strengthen and build capacity within education systems to help build future generations of well-educated citizens.

Our research teams provide evidence on the best ways to improve access to, and the quality of, education, especially for girls. This can be used to inform both education programming and policy decisions.

Specific expertise is required to scale up successful education pilot projects. By working with ministries and donors to support the expansion of proven projects, we help deliver greater benefits to communities.

We also facilitate scholarship programs across Asia on behalf of the Australian Government. Professional development scholarships offer the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to study and research in Australia, giving graduates the skills they need to create positive change in their home country. For Australia, they build an engaged and influential global network of leaders and change-makers, and establish a network of positive contacts around the world.
