Policy Development

Support to Develop Effective Education or Teacher Policy

A shared strategic vision is essential for education system stakeholders to play their role effectively. Simone’s consultative and participatory approach to policy development ensures adherence and buy-in, drawing on viewpoints from every level as well as international good practice. The resulting policies are context-specific, evidence-based and aligned with other policies and national priorities.

Evidence-based Participatory Policy Development

  • Engages stakeholders at every level, from government and national and regional education management to teachers, teacher unions and professional organisations, school leaders and parents, to create a policy that is owned by those affected rather than imposed from above
  • Uses national and international data to ensure policies meet actual needs, are appropriate, realistic and affordable
  • Draws on extensive knowledge and experience of teacher policy development to ensure policies are aligned with international best practice and draw on lessons learned in comparable contexts
