Transforming education in Albania

  • Albania joined the Global Partnership for Education in 2006.
  • At that time, the country’s National Education Strategy (NES) covered the period 2004-2015.
  • Albania has not received any GPE grants. However, GPE (then EFA Fast Track Initiative) worked with the Albanian government to review the quality and assess the feasibility of the Ministry of education of Albania's 2004-2015 National Education Strategy.
  • GPE has also encouraged collaboration in the education sector in Albania, providing expertise and guidance to achieve the country’s education goals.
  • In 2013, Albania participated in GPE’s Sector Monitoring Initiative workshop in Bangkok and shared its experience with other partners about monitoring their sector strategy.

Civil society engagement

As part of its investment in civil society advocacy and social accountability efforts, in the early 2010s, GPE provided the Albanian Coalition for Children's Education (ACCE) a grant from the Civil Society Education Fund.
