We support learning across a lifetime. From early care for infants and toddlers through college and workforce training, our innovative approaches and methodologies address critical questions and improve the quality of educational programs. Our 30+ years of program and policy work has built a portfolio of evidence-based solutions that can be applied to new challenges as the education landscape continues to evolve.
We understand the educational priorities government and the full range of stakeholders active within the education sector. Our highly nuanced and specialized support is strengthened by close working relationships with key people in the field. Our agile approach allows for timely, often immediate, assistance to our clients.
Designed to improve quality, drive outcomes, and increase accountability, ICF’s education services make real improvements and demonstrate quantifiable results. Our roster of successful projects spans community-based organizations to national initiatives—from the training and technical assistance that is enhancing outcomes and building organizational capacity in 40% of all Head Start and Early Head Start programs to the nearly 49,000 military families who have found high-quality child care through our work on militarychildcare.com. Our program evaluations—like the ongoing seven-year assessment of the Texas GEAR UP program’s impact on post secondary education readiness—provide real-time input on implementation and key insights around outcomes.
We combine state-of-the-art methodologies with a deep understanding of the education challenges faced by countries globally to give clients the insights they need to turn research into practice, driving improved efficacy and sustainability of educational programs nationwide.
ICF provides services aimed at improving the quality and sustainability of education programs and education reform.
