Education has the power to transform lives

Yet, millions of children around the world are not achieving minimum proficiency levels in reading and mathematics. Disadvantaged and vulnerable children are most at risk.

Evidence is critical to improving learning

That’s why the GEM Centre collaborates with education stakeholders worldwide, supporting them to build monitoring systems that ensure every child develops the knowledge, skills and attributes to succeed in life.

Our priorities

Build robust tools and methods to gain evidence on learning.

Increase global understanding that high-quality evidence improves learning.

Develop capacity to use evidence for effective policies and practices.

Focus areas


We develop tools and resources to enable education stakeholders and policymakers around the world to improve learning.
