Who we are

We are a large collection of people and institutions who share a common goal: to help governments use the best evidence on how to get children learning, and to implement these proven ideas at the scale necessary for transformative outcomes.

Our organisations

The strategic partners for the What Works Hub for Global Education are: the Blavatnik School of Government (University of Oxford), the UK government’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), the 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.

The Blavatnik School convenes a consortium of over 40 further partners to generate, synthesise and use evidence about effective implementation of education reforms, by working alongside governments in low- and middle-income countries undertaking such reforms. This consortium is a unique mix of world-leading academics, civil society organisations, and governments themselves, with two-thirds based in low- and middle-income countries.

The What Works Hub for Global Education is funded by the FCDO and the Gates Foundation, with other strategic partners aligning resources and providing in-kind support.
