READ THE FULL REPORT

State of education one year into the COVID pandemic report cover

In 2020, 1.5 billion students in 188 countries/economies were locked out of their schools.

Students everywhere have been faced with schools that are open one day and closed the next, causing massive disruption to their learning.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still raging, many education systems are still struggling, and the situation is constantly evolving.

The OECD – in collaboration with UNESCO, UNICEF and The World Bank – has been monitoring the situation across countries and collecting data on how each system is responding to the crisis, from school closures and remote learning, to teacher vaccination and gradual returns to in-class instruction.

This report presents the preliminary findings from this survey, providing a snapshot of the situation one year into the COVID crisis.

IMPLICATIONS FOR VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING (VET)

Implications of the COVID-19 Pandemic for Vocational Education and Training report cover

The vocational education and training (VET) sector has faced particular challenges during the crisis, most notably the fact that the digital learning environments that most education institutions had to rely on during closures don’t work as well for practice-oriented learning – a core component of VET instruction – as they do for academic learning.

This report looks at comparative statistics and policy information collected by the OECD across a number of education systems to track the impact of the pandemic on the VET sector.

THE STATE OF HIGHER EDUCATION

Cover of OECD report: The state of higher education one year in to the COVID-19 pandemic‌‌

The higher education experience was markedly different than usual for those enrolling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Higher education institutions of all kinds found their instructional methods profoundly disrupted by the closure of their physical campuses, and the crisis exposed the urgent need for policy makers and institutional leaders to adjust their established educational and policy models.

This report looks at comparative statistics the OECD has collected across a number of education systems to track developments in the higher education sector throughout the pandemic.
