The 2nd Annual Education Innovation Africa focuses on facilitating innovative partnerships that build sustainable and impactful education programmes across Sub Saharan Africa.

Alternative education models such as informal private schools, online learning platforms, skills-based programmes and alternative delivery models are contributing to the reach of education across Africa. However, sustainable finance and investment are required to increase the efficacy, reach and impact of these programmes. Under this year’s theme ’Delivering Impact’, the event will unite key education leaders at Ministries, Educators, Programmes and Edtech companies, together with Capital Providers at PE, VC, Impact, Development Banks and Corporate Programmes to find new partnerships and models that will provide sustainable and impactful education programmes across Sub-Saharan Africa.

We are witnessing a step-change pace of innovation in education across Africa and wider emerging markets.  Through direct delivery, tech, finance and partnerships, new models are emerging that are having tangible impact on the availability, quality and relevance of teaching and learning.  What shape is education innovation taking in Sub-Saharan Africa?  Who are the driving forces behind it and who will be in the future?  And how does Government view outside innovators and what are their respective roles in fostering innovation?  Our session will explore diverse examples of how innovation is helping to shape the future of learning across the region.  We will look at both the challenges and opportunities surrounding innovation in this sector and whether it will always operate at the margins of large public systems, whether it can help formulate new solutions at scale, and at its potential to identify leapfrog solutions.
