At Education Development Trust, we improve school systems at scale and provide empowering employability and careers services to young people and adults. We own and manage a portfolio of schools and, as a not-for-profit, we invest annually in our programme of education research that informs policymaking around the world as well as our own work. What we do affects how teachers teach, leaders lead and students learn and we help to improve the life chances for all.
We are delighted to announce that Education Development Trust will be delivering the teacher professional development component of the TEACH (Teacher Effectiveness and Equitable Access for All Children) programme, designed to contribute to a positive shift in the trajectory of learning outcomes across Zimbabwe – leaving no child behind.
What have Covid-19 school closures meant for some of the world’s most vulnerable learners, urban slums and arid and semi-arid regions in Kenya? Our recent report for the EdTech Hub highlights how community co-operation – more than technology – can improve educational outcomes for marginalised girls.
We are delighted to announce that the Early Years Professional Development Programme, delivered by Education Development Trust in partnership with Elkan, is to be extended to reach up to 2000 early years practitioners in 50 new local authorities. Targeted, high-quality training and support will help develop practitioners understanding of children’s learning in early language, mathematics and personal, social & emotional development.
While many parts of the world have witnessed significant progress in girls’ education and refugee education in recent years, access to learning remains a critical challenge for refugee girls. In this commentary, we reflect on key learnings from a recent research report published by the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE), which specifically considers the state of girls’ education in crisis and conflict situations.
On this World Youth Skills Day, we celebrate some of the vital work our Employability and Careers team are doing in schools to help bridge the gap between education, training and employability through the organising of mock interviews with top-name employers at schools in London.
Globally, there are 70.8 million forcibly displaced persons. Among these are 25.9 million refugees, over half of whom are children. Effective teacher management is key to ensuring inclusive, equitable, quality education for these young people, and teachers constitute the most important factor affecting student learning. In crisis and displacement situations, the role of teachers is particularly significant: they are sometimes the only resource available to students. This report investigates teacher management in refugee contexts in Jordan, and is the second in a series of country reports. It contributes to a burgeoning body of evidence about teachers in refugee contexts and aims to provide policy guidance to support ministries of education.
We are recruiting for various roles across our teams - these are incredibly rewarding roles that mean being part of an organisation that will prize and nurture your talent.
