Our work in education
We connect the UK and Egyptian school sectors to enrich education, promote global citizenship and build international trust and understanding. We foster dialogue and international partnerships between higher education institutions and organisations and help students who want to study abroad. We work in vocational education to make education and training systems better able to respond to labour market demands and learner needs.
