The need for viable, alternative, and accelerated pathways to enable learners to re-engage with education is more important than ever. 

The Accelerating Change for Children and Youths’ Education through Systems Strengthening (ACCESS) research project, is a collaborative endeavor between the University of Auckland and the INEE AEWG and is funded through the Evidence for Education in Emergencies (E-Cubed) research envelope supported by Dubai Cares. In the first year of the project, researchers in Colombia, Uganda, Nigeria, Jordan, and Pakistan investigated the political economy of Accelerated Education (AE) education provision for out-of-school children and youth (OOSCY), with particular attention to the funding, provision and regulation of such programs.  

Particular attention was given to  identifying what it would take to achieve the type of systemic change necessary for OOSCY to have educational opportunities that are available, accessible, adaptable and acceptable. The research found that current approaches to funding, provisioning and regulating such programs is often insufficient if the aim is to ensure that all over-aged and out of school learners have access to quality AE programs.    In this webinar, members of the research team, alongside representatives from the AEWG, reflect on the implications of these findings on their efforts to date and moving forward.
