Sambodhi > Practice Area > Education and skills

Discussions on learning outcomes and expansion of education have grown dramatically in the last several years. There is also a focus on understanding the extent of learning and other dimensions of quality such as context, teaching and learning environment, and learner characteristics.

Sambodhi works with a range of stakeholders to help decision-makers create an enabling policy and practice environment and improve learning. By leveraging cutting-edge methodologies and data capturing systems, we bring together policymakers, researchers, and practitioners to bridge gaps in systemic data and answer critical questions on who is learning and who is not.
