About the IBE
Who we are
The International Bureau of Education (IBE) is the UNESCO institute specializing in educational contents, methods and structures. Its overall mission is to contribute to the attainment of quality Education for All (EFA). To this end, the IBE builds networks to share expertise on curriculum development in all regions of the world, and aims to introduce innovative approaches in curriculum design and implementation, improve practical skills, and facilitate international dialogue on educational policies and practices.
How we work

It offers technical assistance, training, policy support and a wide range of resources, tools and materials necessary for curriculum specialists to gain new perspectives on complex issues and making informed decisions according to their own contexts and needs.
Where we are
Since its foundation in 1925, IBE headquarters are located in Geneva, Switzerland. For more information, see IBE premises or IBE contact information.
