10th meeting of the TCG

The 10th meeting of the TCG was held virtually on 11 December 2023. It focused on the first session of the Conference on Education Data and Statistics (Paris, 7 - 9 February 2024).

The objectives of TCG 10 were to:

  • update participants on the preparations for the Conference, including nominations of delegates by Member States and side events
  • discuss the position papers and finalize them prior to the Conference
  • present the findings and conclusions of the preparatory regional meetings that helped identify regional priorities and concerns
  • discuss TCG organization, including rotation of members and define agenda forward.

The TCG 10 meeting was preceded by the Global Alliance to Monitor Learning (GAML) meeting held in-person on 6 and 7 December 2023 (see concept note). The focus of the 2023 GAML meeting was on SDG indicator 4.1.1, the global indicator measuring learning outcomes. The meeting presented the main challenges associated with producing reliable and internationally comparable learning outcomes data, while highlighting the significant developments made and lessons learned, and setting an agenda for the way forward. Apart from GAML, no other working group met ahead of TCG10 this year.
