The Pacific Board for Educational Quality, the CRGA sub-committee that governs the Educational Quality and Assessment Programme, will convene online on September 2. The board comprises of the Pacific heads of education systems and representatives of development partners working in the region's education sector. It is a sub-committee of SPC's governing council, the Committee of Representatives of Governments and Administrations (CRGA).
Among some of the pertinent issues to be discussed are the impact of the global pandemic on Pacific education and the Pacific Regional Education Framework (PacREF). The PacREF outlines a regional programme of strategies and activities in four education policy areas. The four policy areas are Quality and Relevance, Learning Pathways, Student Outcome and Wellbeing, and Teaching Professionalism.
The PBEQ meeting follows the online country consultations and the PILNA Steering Committee meeting held earlier in the year.
