Overview of the functions of the post
Established in 1999, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) serves as UNESCO’s statistical agency for its 193 member states (MS) and 12 associated members. The UIS agenda is focused on delivering cross-national comparable data for global, regional, and development agendas across fields such as education, science, culture, and communication. The UIS provides technical support to MS, enabling them to produce transformative data based on three pillars: Standards and methodologies, Data production, and Brokering and outreach. The UIS envisions informed policies and decision-making, benchmarking progress toward national and international goals, and learning from collective experiences. As part of our growth, we seek to build a management team that will lead the successful implementation of this vision.

The UIS plays a pivotal role in shaping global education by providing essential data, technical expertise, and leadership in learning outcomes. We actively address challenges related to AI and machine learning, laying a strong foundation for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Collaborating with UNICEF, the World Bank, OECD, and the GEMR, we fulfill emerging data requirements. Our joint efforts, including the Joint Survey on national education responses to COVID-19, demonstrate our commitment to immediate priorities. The data generated through these initiatives informs global, regional, and funding mechanisms for education. We are at the forefront of supporting countries in achieving improved education outcomes, leveraging AI’s potential and addressing associated challenges.
