Another important aspect of our work is to contribute to education discourse and support system development. As 21st century skills in education is a new and complex theme for many countries in the region, we organised a conference in Lima, Peru, on 2 February, 2017, to foster learning and inspiration - and provoke useful conversations.
It was a full-day international event with an audience of approximately 200 people: around 160/180 educators and policy makers from Peru + around 30 delegates from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Jamaica and USA.
Main objectives of the event:
- Set the ground for Core Skills in the Americas - bring awareness to the programme and build partnership opportunities;
- Facilitate communication and build consensus recommendations between public, private and civic sectors (as it is a new and also complex topic);
- Support the development of policy in the region by sharing best practices of UK’s educational systems and programmes.
