The Global Campaign for Education in the UK works with MPs and Peers to help generate debate and discussion on international education within Parliament.
APPG Global Education for All
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Global Education for All is a group of parliamentarians from both the House of Commons (MPs) and the House of Lords, and all major parties, who have come together to support UK action on achieving universal, quality, basic education.
The APPG aims to:
- raise awareness in Parliament of the factors affecting the provision of education globally and the UK Government’s obligations to help to meet the education related development goals;
- provide a platform for parliamentarians to discuss and debate policy and other issues related to education globally;
- work with politicians from all parties, international development organisations, education sector stakeholders (including unions) both nationally and internationally, to help secure universal, quality, basic education.
