Depuis 2001, Éducation internationale a réalisé plus de vingt-cinq projets et mandats de développement international, pour une valeur globale d’environ 13 millions de dollars canadiens. Ces projets ont été réalisés principalement en Afrique, en Amérique latine et dans les Caraïbes. Ceux-ci ont permis à une centaine d’experts(es) québécois(es) de partager leur savoir-faire avec des milliers de collègues des pays en voie de développement.

Éducation internationale intervient en éducation de base (enseignement préscolaire, primaire, secondaire et éducation des adultes), en gestion de l'éducation et en formation professionnelle et technique. Nos interventions visent à appuyer tant des institutions d’enseignement à l’étranger que des systèmes éducatifs dans leur ensemble (interventions à l’échelle nationale et appuis au niveau ministériel).

Les deux vidéos suivantes illustrent le type de projets réalisés par la coopérative et ses membres en développement international.
