The AEWG is a working group made up of education partners working in Accelerated Education (AE). The AEWG is currently led by UNHCR with representation from UNICEF, UNESCO, USAID, NRC, Plan, IRC, Save the Children, ECCN and War Child Holland.
Based on the aim for a more standardised approach to accelerated education provision globally, the AEWG has begun to develop guidance materials based on international standards and sound practice for AE. In 2016, the AEWG developed a set of 10 principles for effective practice (i.e. “the principles” or “AE principles”), and also accompanying guidance to these principles (known as the Guide to the AE Principles).
The purpose of this case study was to more fully understand the relevance, usefulness and application of the AE principles and guidance within the context of the Norwegian Refugee Council’s (NRC) AEP in Dadaab, Kenya. This case study sits along three others – from Kenya, Afghanistan, and Sierra Leone – all implemented by different actors and working with different populations of learners.
