In 2005 the Consortium completed a major project for the Commonwealth Secretariat on ways to make operational the Edinburgh Action Plan for Education with its six priority action areas. The report Implementing the Edinburgh Action Plan for Education: the way forward charted the extensive capacity of the Commonwealth in education, explored its comparative advantage and identified themes and issues for future collaboration.
In 2010 CCfE, in co-operation with Link Community Development and partners in Zimbabwe (Ministry of Education, civil society bodies and international agencies) delivered a programme designed to assist the process of education reconstruction in that country. Workshops were held in Harare and London.
In June 2012 CCfE partnered Link Community Development in a Workshop in Kampala Uganda on ‘Achievable Education for All’ comprising exchange of experience on effecting improvements in education through data collection and analysis at local level.
