KPMG and its strategic alliance partners will convene the ‘What Works – accelerated pathways’ by invitation-only side event, with perspectives from CSOs, industry leaders, public and private sector to discuss widening access to education for all. The side events will coincide with the Global Partnership for Education 2021 UK - Africa Education Summit. The What Works – accelerated pathways partners will use the outcomes of the side event to develop a Playbook that showcases the learnings, identified opportunities and proposed solutions that education sector stakeholders and actors can roll out at scale on what works to keep children in schools, particularly girls. From our collective experience, we know that what works, especially in a global crisis is what has always worked. Unified collective action that accelerates change by leaving no-one behind. We know that adaptive and flexible approaches are key drivers in achieving mutual prosperity and social value for all. The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the disparity between access to quality education for children in urban versus rural settings. The disparity between children attending private and generally well-resourced schools often experience continuous learning versus learning in public schools which is less consistent. Education inequality leads to further disparities in accessing job opportunities and other economic activities which affect the quality of life. A lower quality of life potentially feeds into the cycle of poverty, which in turn negates the ideals of a resilient future workforce. We invite stakeholders from the private sector, civil society, development partners and government to participate.
