EQAP's Priorities under the PacREF
The Pacific Community's education division, Educational Quality and Assessment Programme (EQAP), has a critical role in the successful implementation of the Pacific Regional Education Framework (PacREF), Moving Towards Education 2030, - the 12-year education roadmap that outlines the region's education and training priorities and strategies.
The framework adopts a human rights approach that seeks to empower all Pacific islanders to fully enjoy the benefits of education and lifelong learning. It advances the Pacific Forum leaders' vision of The Blue Pacific that was endorsed in 2017.
