Flexible Learning Strategies for out-of -school children and youth


“61 million children of primary school age remain excluded from formal education globally. These “out-of-school children” include those who are the most marginalized and vulnerable.

This 12-page brochure introduces how Flexible Learning Strategies (“FLS”) as adopted by governments and NGOs can effectively and innovatively provide learners with an alternative means to gaining basic literacy and numeracy competencies as well as the life skills needed to thrive. A number of FLS initiatives exist in Asia and the Pacific, and common characteristics of these programmes include 1. Intensive quality teaching, 2. Ability to reach the unreached, 3. Flexibility, 4. Equivalency to formal education and 5. Lifelong learning.”
