Overview: In 2016, the AEWG developed 10 Principles for Effective Practice for Accelerated Education and an accompanying Guide which specifies key definitions, essential information, recommended actions based on good practice, indications of challenges, examples, case studies, and suggested reading. Testing of these tools commenced in mid 2016 and included:
- development of a checklist, based on the 10 AE principles and associated subprinciples which was disseminated to AE programmes through the AEWG;
- solicitation of feedback from global AE experts; and
- field visits to 4 AE programmes in 3 locations: Kenya, Afghanistan and Sierra Leone, (with a desk study conducted in Mali) to test the relevance, utility and application of the AE Principles and Guide within various contexts, with different target populations, and at various stages of the programme cycle.
