Commonwealth Consortium for Education
Consortium for Education has been established by a group of education-related
Commonwealth NGOs, to coordinate their efforts on behalf of Commonwealth
education, to stimulate more coherence in their work and to provide a
collective mechanism for interaction with ministries and official Commonwealth
The Council for Education in the Commonwealth's Annual Conference on Tuesday 1st July will be held at the British Council Headquarters in central London just off Trafalgar Square. The Conference runs from 10.45 a.m. (registration/coffee from 10.00) to 4p.m and includes lunch. It is open to all, including non-Members of CEC. As shown on the attached there is a small charge to register - £25 for CEC members, £30 for non-members and £15 for students.
We believe the theme of the Conference, Team Commonwealth and Goals in Education, will be of wide interest. With the help of many distinguished speakers (see the provisional programme), we shall be exploring how, especially in education, the Commonwealth can work more effectively with external partners, how the plethora of Commonwealth bodies with an interest in education can co-ordinate their efforts, and how to link up the different sectoral concerns (health, employment, youth, education etc) to produce a more holistic approach to development. And we will be looking forward to the prospects for next year's (2015) CHOGM in Malta and the 19th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers in the Bahamas, and how civil society and others can engage productively with those gatherings of senior decision-takers.
