UNESCO supports Iran and Turkmenistan in their efforts to ensure inclusive and quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all in the areas of education policy, planning and strategy; education data collection, analysis and reporting; literacy and lifelong learning; technical and vocational education and training, and ICT in education.

UNESCO contributes to these objectives through a combination of knowledge-sharing, providing upstream policy advice and capacity building, facilitating policy dialogues and developing partnerships. In implementing its programmes in education, UNESCO engages closely with a range of partners including the Iranian and Turkmen National Commissions for UNESCO, the Ministries of Education, the Literacy Movement Organization (LMO) of Iran and the Technical and Vocational Training Organization (TVTO) under the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labour and Social Welfare in Iran and UNICEF.
