Download the report, 'Launching a Global Education Platform: Lessons and recommendations from the India pilot', here.
The Global Business Coalition for Education (GBC-Education), catalysed the Global Education Platform (GEP), which aims to address the critical skills gap between education and employment. Through evaluating the pilot project, which focused on practical literacy skills, through the "YourStoryIndia" campaign, Jigsaw identified key strengths and learning points in the first stage of the GEP. The pilot, which was a collaboration between WattPad, Twitter and other partners, resulted in widespread engagement across India, including a dozen language groups, demonstrating the potential of young people to build critical employment skills related to literacy. Jigsaw was able to identify future opportunities for GBC-Education through the report, and identified several potential avenues for ongoing collaboration with partners. The opportunity to work with GBC-Education allowed Jigsaw to lend its expertise in ICT for education to this important initiative, providing learning for its future impact.
