International Education Partners-Vincent Bontoux — People

Vincent Bontoux

Vincent Bontoux developed his extensive knowledge of learning and teaching materials provision and the world publishing industry through his previous employment with France Edition, the main representative and promotional organisation for the French publishing industry, where he was in charge of the creation of publishing development strategies for developing and transitional economies.

In 1999 he joined International Book Development in London where he provided specialist inputs on developing learning materials strategies and national policies for aid-funded projects in Africa (Djibouti, Lesotho, Malawi, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda), the Former Soviet Union (Uzbekistan and Georgia) and Asia (Nepal, Afghanistan).

In 2004, Vincent joined International Education Partners. During his time as director he worked on a wide range of learning materials projects in Djibouti, Burundi, Zambia, Mozambique, Madagascar, Rwanda, Haiti and Moldova.

In 2007 Vincent was course designer and team leader for a two month curriculum, publishing, production and management course for both state and private sector participants in Tajikistan.

Vincent is a respected and experienced policy and strategy analyst on all aspects of learning and teaching materials provision, procurement, evaluation and financing systems. He is also a skilled and experienced education researcher and trainer. Apart from native French, he speaks fluent English, German, Spanish and Portuguese.

Vincent Bontoux organised the research and editing of the francophone contributions to the ADEA book Upgrading Book Distribution in Africa (2001) and for the francophone and lusophone components of the 2007 World Bank-funded research study on secondary textbook and library provision in sub-Saharan Africa. He was also responsible for the translation of the ADEA book for the French language edition.

Although an freelance consultant, Vincent and IE Partners still work in close collaboration.
