Transforming education in Guinea

Education in Guinea face many challenges. The government and partners are working to improve the financial and institutional capacities of its education system to achieve sustainable goals in terms of school coverage, enrollment, quality and equity.

These challenges include the low primary completion rate, inequalities between girls and boys, poor learning outcomes, lack of trained teachers, and high repetition and dropout rates.

Guinea's 2020-2029 education sector plan defines six priority:

  • Equitable access to general education.
  • Quality and relevance of teaching.
  • Adult literacy and education.
  • Extension and reform of technical education and vocational training.
  • Reform of higher education and scientific research.
  • Governance and management of the education system.

Guinea intends to ensure equitable access to basic education for all children, including children with disabilities and those with special needs.
