ACER is helping to build resilient education systems through a new initiative that connects Australian expertise in remote education with partners in the Indo-Pacific region.
More than two billion students have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with school closures affecting around 80 per cent of the world’s student population (UNESCO, 2020). Disruptions to education systems due to COVID-19 pose a real threat to the learning, skills and human development priorities of Indo-Pacific countries. Through well-planned responses from governments, there is an opportunity to build more inclusive, efficient and resilient education systems.
Australian Strategic Partnerships in Remote Education (ASPIRE) connects Australian experience and expertise in remote education with partners in the Indo-Pacific region to provide learning continuity, access and equity, in particular for disadvantaged students. Managed by ACER on behalf of the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), ASPIRE aims to contribute to immediate and long-term educational and economic benefits for the Indo-Pacific region.
Equitable Education Alliance (EEA) is a community of practice for organizations; ministries, agencies and NGO’s who strives to push for a more inclusive and equitable educational system while enhancing the performance of existing equitable education organizations at all levels
