Our expertise

ACER India Board of Directors

Amit Kaushik

ACER is working towards realising its commitment to transforming learning systems with the support of strong and invaluable partnerships in the South Asian region. Together with our partners, we work towards the shared goal of improving educational outcomes in a region where millions of learners are still out of school and a significant proportion of students lack basic foundational literacy and numeracy skills.

We are investing in research, professional development of education stakeholders, and high-quality learning assessments. Our initiatives aim to support learners to learn successfully and better prepare them for the future. However, meaningful advancement is only possible with the support of our partners – national and subnational governments, international development agencies, schools, and non-profit organisations.

With over 90 years of experience, ACER is recognised globally for driving progress towards quality and equity in education. Across countries, we encourage research-informed policies and practice that eventually help learners gain the skills they need for work and life. As a reputed technical advisor in South Asia, we look forward to strengthening our collaborations with partners and to supporting their efforts to enhance learning.
