Are you a passionate advocate for education? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of children in the world’s poorest countries? The Global Partnership for Education Secretariat (GPE) would like to hear from you.

Who we are

GPE is a shared commitment to ending the world’s learning crisis. It is the only global partnership and fund dedicated entirely to helping children in lower-income countries get a quality education, so they can unlock their potential and contribute to building a better world. With nearly 20 years’ experience helping partner countries to get more girls and boys in school and learning, we convene teachers, civil society, donors, United Nations agencies, development banks, businesses and philanthropists behind partner country leadership to finance and support solutions so that no child is left behind.

What we do

GPE convenes partners and mobilizes funds to help governments in 76 lower-income countries build and finance strong and sustainable education systems that deliver quality learning to more girls and boys, especially those who are marginalized by poverty, gender, disability or displacement. GPE focuses on driving transformation at scale to get the most vulnerable girls and boys in school, improve teaching and learning, and build resilient education systems capable of withstanding shocks and adapting to new challenges. GPE’s approach achieves lasting impact by convening partners behind country leadership. We support government efforts to advance teaching and learning for the 21st century, mobilize more and better financing, and scale up proven solutions for the world’s poorest and hardest-to-reach girls and boys.

Raise Your Hand

GPE is currently calling on world leaders to “Raise Your Hand” and pledge at least US$5 billion to help GPE transform education in up to 87 countries, which are home to more than 1 billion children. Over the next five years, this funding will help ensure that 175 million children can learn and enroll 88 million more children in school. In the longer term, this investment could add $164 billion to economies in the developing world, lift 18 million people out of poverty, and protect two million girls from early marriage.


With over 100 staff, the GPE secretariat is hosted by the World Bank and has headquarters in Washington D.C and offices in Paris and Brussels. The selected candidate may be based in the Washington, DC or the Paris, France office. This is an international recruitment subject to compensation on the local pay scale for the defined duty station, and global mobility benefits may be applicable as per World Bank Group policy.

Country Engagement and Policy Team

The Country Engagement and Policy Team (CEP) is a new team within the Secretariat which acts as our primary relationship coordinator with country partners. We support national evidence-informed policy dialogue at country level, including on the development and implementation of national compacts between governments, development partners, civil society and other education actors to drive progress in education system transformation priorities. The CEP Team is comprised of three regional country support teams, the Education, Policy and Learning team and the Strategy and Coordination team.
