There is an urgent need to get all children learning

The What Works Hub for Global Education is an international partnership working out how to implement education reforms at scale, with the ultimate goal of increasing literacy, numeracy and other key skills in low- and middle-income countries.

What we do

Our work will directly affect up to 3 million children, and reach up to 17 million more through its influence.

Who we are

We are a collaborative partnership between the Blavatnik School of Government (University of Oxford), the UK government’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the British Council, Building Evidence in Education (BE2), the Global Education Evidence Advisory Panel (GEEAP), the Learning Generation Initiative, USAID, UNICEF Innocenti, UNESCO-IIEP, and the World Bank.

We are also a global consortium of more than 40 members, including civil society organisations, research institutions, and governments, the majority of which are based in the Global South.

Evidence and resources

We generate new evidence and facilitate evidence uptake by governments and implementers. Our work brings a new focus on implementation science, examining how governments can implement effective education reforms at the scale necessary for transformative outcomes.
