Two years on, the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to impact national education systems due to partial or complete closures of schools, or the uncertainty of school closures. To support education policymakers and stakeholders to build resilient education systems, the Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Centre developed two practical policy resources – a Policy Monitoring Framework (PMF) and a Policy Monitoring Tool (PMT). This brief describes how the Policy Monitoring Tool can be used to review existing policies and strategies, identify areas for improvement, monitor changes, and prioritise activities to build education system resilience.

For a complete description of the Policy Monitoring Tool (PMT) referred to in this document, please see Building resilient education systems: A rapid review of the education in emergencies literature.
