Through capacity building and co-operation programmes, the  Education Department aims to increase the capacity of national education systems to provide quality education, develop competences for a democratic culture, fight discrimination, support integrity and transparency in education and combat extremism and violence in schools. 

All programmes are based on the policy work of the Council of Europe, tailored to the specific needs of each country.

Projects and activities are implemented within several frameworks, including the Council of Europe ordinary budget, joint programmes with the European Union and the EEA/Norway grants.

Future programmes are currently being negotiated to continue to support member states implement Council of Europe standards and policies in the education sector.
