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.
