This in-person meeting, held at UCL in July, aimed to disseminate information about the work of the AGEE project to-date and reflect with representatives from different local groups with knowledge of schools and neighbourhoods about the potential ways AGEE could be developed to meet their needs.
Stage 2 of work on the AGEE project has resulted in four outputs:
- The composite indicator for approximately 40 countries
- The AGEE cross-national dashboard for approximately 40 countries
- A process for building criteria for dashboards and reviewing candidate indicators
- Criteria and candidate indicators for national dashboards
- Discussions on using the AGEE approach linked to MEL work in girls’ education projects
The workshop began with a presentation of an initial version of the dashboard, and the discussion reviewed the potential for using the AGEE Framework at neighbourhood and school level in a number of different settings.
In addition, participants reflected on data gaps revealed through work on AGEE composite indicator, cross-national, national and project dashboards and discussed some steps to address these, and in particular considered indicators for gender transformative education at local levels.
Participants included policy advisors linked to governments and international organisations with an interest in school level data; researchers and activists working on gender equality in education at local level in a wide range of countries.
