Miho Taguma is Senior Policy Analyst in the Early Childhood and Schools Division of the Directorate for Education at the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

She is currently also leading a new OECD initiative, Education 2030, that aims to help countries explore different dimensions of 21st century competencies which modern education systems need to develop in students towards the world in 2030 (Project Phase 1: 2015-2018); and in a later stage (Project Phase 2: 2019 and beyond), help countries explore the learning environments and education systems that can support the development of these competencies. The project will focus on secondary level education, where relevant, including vocational education and training while recognising a life-long learning continuum. In the past, she conducted various policy reviews such as on migrant educaiton, recognition of non-formal and informal learning. During her post at the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation, she worked on "E-learning in Tertiary Education".
