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.
At Education Development Trust, the impact of our work is critical to all we do. 2019/20 was an exceptional year in many ways, as we rapidly adapted and pivoted our programmes and research to meet the needs of learners, educators and leaders around the world during the Covid-19 crisis. In this report, the second of our Annual Impact Reviews, we present the ways in which our work has made a positive difference – both in rising to the education challenges of the pandemic and in more broadly furthering our mission to improve lives by transforming education worldwide.
We are delighted to announce that Education Development Trust has been selected as a lead provider for the reformed National Professional Qualifications in England.
For over 20 years, the Careers team at Education Development Trust has been supporting the development of employability skills for young people and adults, as well supporting individuals to move into the workplace. We deliver a range of employability support programmes across England, working in partnership with employers, funders, delivery partners and stakeholders to design and deliver campaigns that help people access the most relevant and bespoke support on their journey to meaningful work.
We are delighted to report that Education Development Trust has been selected by the Department for Education as a lead provider for the national rollout of the Early Career Framework, supporting early career teachers across England.
In Kenya, our Girls’ Education Challenge project is helping girls into vocational training to help them set up their own businesses. Among the more than 3,700 girls who have benefitted from bursaries for secondary schooling or vocational training, several are now employed to make protective face masks to combat the spread of Covid-19.
We are delighted to announce the launch of BlendEd, a programme of free professional development and resources to support teachers delivering a blend of distance learning and face-to-face teaching, managed by Education Development Trust’s Connected Learning Centre (CLC).
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.
