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.
Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has released a report of their findings from a three-year evaluation of the Schools Partnership Programme. This is one of the largest school improvement evaluations in the UK, looking at the effectiveness and influence of partnership-based peer review.
What impact does climate change have on education, especially in areas which are vulnerable to climate disasters and extreme weather events? In this report, we explore the impact of climate change on schools and learning in Turkana County, Kenya, and consider how to engage learners and schools in building resilience to climate change in the future.
To mark International Women’s Day 2023 and to chime with the theme of #EmbraceEquity, we’re highlighting our evidence-based research into girls’ education and teacher development that helps communities take practical steps towards gender equity in leadership roles and careers.
In this report, the culmination of a joint research project between Education Development Trust and IIEP-UNESCO, we explore the role of a critical but too often neglected set of actors in addressing the teaching and learning crisis worldwide: those working in the ‘middle tier’ of education systems. Together, these actors – from district education officers to teacher mentors – have incredible potential to improve learning outcomes, working across schools and districts to improve teaching quality. Drawing on a diverse range of case studies from Delhi, Shanghai, Jordan, Rwanda and Wales, we not only highlight the potential of middle-tier actors to bring about lasting change, but also assess the critical factors in enabling their success.
This new book explores the complex challenges around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4: to ‘ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’.
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 Kenya, and is the third 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.
