DFID's work on education: Leaving no one behind?


Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 sets a bold and ambitious new challenge to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” by 2030.

The International Development Committee inquired into all aspects of DFID’s work on education. In particular, focusing on DFID's work in three key areas:

  • Access: getting the most marginalised children into school
  • Quality: ensuring children receive a high standard of education at primary and secondary with good learning outcomes
  • Lifelong learning: ensuring provision of tertiary education (including technical and practical education)
