Institute for Educational Development

Institutes for Educational Development

The Aga Khan University Institutes for Educational Development see a correlation between improving the quality of teacher education and encouraging socio-economic growth in the developing world.

With institutes in Pakistan and East Africa we give teachers the skills and opportunities they need to educate future leaders through human resource development, institutional capacity building, policy analysis and research.

To support this work, the Institutes conduct a broad array of training and academic programmes for in-service teachers, teacher educators and education managers from both the public and private sectors.


We conduct research with a conscience' that yields contextually appropriate solutions and contributes to the improvement of educational practice and policy in the developing world as well as in the wider global context. Learn more about educational development research in East Africa and Pakistan.
