As an education charity, we transform lives by improving education around the world. We help to shape education systems and design education solutions to give young people everywhere a brighter future. Our work is evidence informed and we invest annually in our programme of educational research.


We work collaboratively with national and local governments, schools and other partners to design and deliver sustainable solutions to improve education. Whether our work impacts four schools or 400, our ethos is the same: to put in place an effective, cost-effective, sustainable solution that will transform lives.


Our values of excellence, integrity, accountability and collaboration underpin everything that we do. As a registered charity, we reinvest a percentage of our surplus into a publicly available programme of educational research. Our research helps policymakers to make informed decisions and it helps practitioners choose the most effective teaching methods.

Passionate educationalists

Our solutions are delivered by passionate educationalists, skilled project managers and highly experienced support staff. As an international organisation, we achieve local success with worldwide expertise; we combine on-the-ground insight with international best practice.

Transformative power of education

Wherever you see our work – delivering on behalf of the UK government, providing essential educational expertise in Syria, inspecting an international school in Thailand – you can always expect the same exceptional high standards and heartfelt belief in the transformative power of education.

It's our mission to transform education and in order to do that we must emphasise evidence... We do a huge range of research to reflect the huge range of context where we work.
