In the past decades many countries have decentralised governance structures, giving more autonomy to local or school levels. In all systems an increasing number of stakeholders (teachers, parents, students, unions, companies etc.) are involved in deciding how education should be designed, delivered and monitored. These trends have increased the complexity of education systems, leaving decision makers on all governance levels with the question of how to successfully manoeuvre in this highly dynamic policy area.
Part of the OECD’s Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI), the SEG project works through analytical research, peer learning seminars, and thematic conferences to bring together state-of-the-art conceptual thinking with country experiences and concrete tools. In 2017-18 the project addresses issues related to new modes of governance and indicator development. We are looking for individuals with an interest in education governance as well as any or all of these skills:
