Policy Brief: Addressing Gendered Consequences of COVID-19 in Education and Training
This policy brief provides evidence about the effects of COVID-19 on girls and women in COL’s priority sectors of Education and Training. Urgent action is required from Commonwealth Ministries of Education and Women’s Affairs to advance their commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment through policies that mitigate the gendered impacts of COVID-19. Based on lessons from a rapid literature review and COL’s own experience, this brief makes recommendations for effective action to find ways to enhance the learning outcomes of girls and women during the pandemic and to ensure that they continue their education by integrating gender equality into education and training policies and programmes in both COVID-19 response and recovery planning.
