unstar this property answer text <p>Significant progress has been made on developing DFID’s new education policy. Since July, we have reviewed the latest evidence on how to deliver quality education, much of which is funded by DFID. We have also consulted extensively, including engaging with education experts in academia, the public and private sectors, and international organisations. This has enabled evaluation of where DFID can add the most value. We are developing a policy in line with our strengths and expertise. We anticipate the policy will be launched in early 2018.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>DFID has a dedicated Education Research Team with a £12m per annum portfolio of innovative research on education systems, raising learning outcomes, and learning and skills beyond primary education. This research portfolio has a particular focus on disadvantaged groups and the pursuit of an equitable start to learning for all. Research commissioned through this team, along with the UK Research Community, has ensured that teachers, equity and systems reform are at the centre of DFID’s new education policy.</p><p>DFID has commissioned rigorous reviews of existing evidence and, as a result of the findings, concluded a focus on children with disabilities. For example, one research project, which is funded by DFID through the UK Economic and Social Research Council, investigates different modalities for teaching literacy in deaf communities in India, Ghana and Uganda. Wider inclusion and equity issues are fundamental to all DFID’s education research programmes, and we seek to mainstream them.</p>

The UK has been working with GPE through its Executive Board so that it has a compelling case for investment. The UK fully supports a successful replenishment.
