EPO BANNER CONFERENCE 2015

The International Conference on Education Making Reforms Happen organised by the OECD in partnersh‌ip with the Department for Education (England) was held in London, United kingdom on 22-23 January 2015.

The conference attracted high level participants with a mixture of politicians and policy makers, opinion leaders, statisticians, academics, journalists and researchers from many countries. This OECD Conference focused on:

  • How can policy makers be more effective with their reform agendas? By discussing and reviewing different policy options to improve school outcomes based on country practice.
  • Promote peer learning opportunities for policy makers from different education systems.

The working sessions confirmed the relevance and potential policy impact of the many on-going reform initiatives gathered in the OECD’s Education Policy Outlook 2015: Making Reforms Happen aimed at enhancing frameworks, processes, methods and tools for better education systems.

The conclusions of the Conference marked the beginning of a new challenging and intense working phase.
