Promoting a global perspective in education
At USC, we have 20 years’ experience in tertiary education and access to a deep reservoir of knowledge and expertise.
This expertise is supported by USC’s award-winning Centre for Support and Advancement of Learning and Teaching, which provides cutting-edge advice on pedagogy, learning cultures and teaching tools to develop tailor-made processes and solutions.
Our team works collaboratively to implement educational change in developing countries – change that aligns with national policies and supports and develops existing systems.
We aim to improve the quality of education and academic systems toward global standards in order to enhance people’s livelihoods on a long-term basis.
Providing high-quality education in developing countries is the first step to creating a better future, growing the local economy and enabling the community to shape its own development.
To date, we have delivered over 100 projects worldwide – working closely with governments, donors and businesses to leverage local talent to solve local problems.
We have trained more than 2,500 teachers, principals, and education policy makers around the globe.
We have taught early childhood and primary teacher education in some of the poorest regions of the world – striving to advance education where it’s needed.
Having successfully completed our $7 million project ‘Increasing education capacity in Papua, Indonesia’ shows our expansive experience.
This three‑year project focused on improving teacher competencies, delivering stronger curriculum outcomes and improving school leadership structures to help build more effective schools.
Our expertise in capacity building in the education sector falls into four distinct areas:
- Educational leadership
- School governance, system and structure
- Contextual pedagogies and curriculum
