This Partners in Learning: Education Transformation Agreement provides a comprehensive joint public-private program for educational excellence. The key strategic aims are to
• Transform Learning

This agreement encompasses mutually agreed-upon projects and solutions and includes tools to support overall educational success.
A key objective of the Partners in Learning, the Education Transformation Agreement is to establish firm commitments from all stakeholders to ensure that common goals are achieved. This forms the basis of an on-going partnership, based on regular review and measurement, which will keep the components of the educational programs functioning well and aligned for the long term.
