Several thematic areas have been identified for the formation of clusters, including: 

STEM Education, ICT in Education, Teacher Development, Women & Girls Education, Higher Education, School Feeding, Peace and Education, Literacy and Lifelong Learning, Education Planning, TVET, Life Skills, Curriculum, Early Childhood Education, Students' Association and Parents' Association.

It is important to note that some of the cluster activities and partnerships pre-date CESA, as they were initiated under the 2nd Decade of Education for Africa. Hence they are reported to be active, and yet not launched under CESA. Launching under CESA is necessary because the Terms of Reference and Work Plan change in response to the CESA Objectives and Agenda 2063 imperatives.
