The GLACP will take the lead coordination role for ensuring key linkages between the global, national and local technical partners responsible for the development, testing, and roll-out of the Schools2030 Learning Assessment Tools.

The GLACP will be responsible for producing reports, publications and conference presentations on the Schools2030 Learning Assessment Tools development processes and final learning and evaluation assessment products. The GLACP will also work with our data management and app development partners, Vera Solutions, to ensure teachers can input data from the Schools2030 Learning Assessment Tools onto the PROMISE3 Application (Programme Management System for Education by Everyone, Everywhere); ensuring clean and labelled data sets are produced annually across the ten countries to be used for evaluative work.
