In Tailor-Made projects, we work alongside education providers and funders to help them implement innovations. Simultaneously, we help innovators to expand, deepen, and sustain their impact across different contexts.
Globally, individuals and institutions are finding new ways to address pressing challenges in education systems by creating novel approaches and solutions. However, in education, the scaling of successful solutions from a few schools widespread use has been challenging.
We seek to equip educational systems with the structure, frameworks, processes, and capacity required to successfully adapt and implement high impact innovations, that deliver better learning outcomes.
It’s all in the name: Each Tailor-Made solves a unique, local challenge. Each project includes these four phases.
We identify the actual gaps, needs and challenges that need to be addressed.
We identify impactful and scaleable innovations that have been proven to address the challenge in other contexts.
We work with the schools to test and adapt the innovation to the context.
The Learning Workbook documents learnings from the process, helping you quickly and effectively scale up the implementation of the innovation.
Learn how we are piloting support for education innovation implementation at the system level in different places.
