The OECD's Above and Beyond project investigates how learners from different countries transition into, through and out of upper secondary education.
With this understanding governments will be able to develop policies to support all learners in leading fulfilling and productive lives.
|Gathering Information||Sharing Information|
Above and Beyond collects information about countries' contexts and education systems
Above and Beyond shares its information with participating countries
The project will produce original, comparative analysis on how countries can design and develop their upper secondary education systems to best meet student needs.
Specific outputs from the project will include:
Countries can participate in Above and Beyond by contacting us and sharing information about their challenges and policy initiatives. More formally, countries can undertake country reviews, join in peer-learning discussions and attend meetings of country representatives.
Peer learning is an essential component of this project, and the secretariat aims to facilitate knowledge sharing between countries. The OECD will invite countries to participate in each other's country reviews and provide opportunities for countries to present their practices to the larger community as part of meetings and other events.
