Accelerate Case study Accelerate Accelerate was created and developed by Education Development Trust in partnership with the Chartered College of Teaching to support early-career teachers, quickly raising quality of practice and increasing confidence.

Case study Building Learning Foundations in Rwanda Education Development Trust has a long history of working in Rwanda. Our teams worked with the ministry of education in a post-genocide Rwanda in 2001 to design the education sector strategic plan, the framework of which is still in use today. Our latest three-and-a-half-year programme, Building Learning Foundations, is about getting the foundations in place to positively effect the rest of Rwanda's education system. Case study National Careers Service We have been delivering the National Careers Service on behalf of the UK government since 2004. We work in the north east, Cumbria, Yorkshire and the Humber and in parts of the south east and the south west of England. The National Careers Service offers informed careers, employment and skills support to bridge the gap between education, training and employment; our success in delivering this contract resulted in our award of Ofsted 'outstanding' status, making us one of only two providers in the country to achieve this. Case study English language teaching in the Middle East Our English language teaching work in the Middle East is largely funded by the ringfenced funds resulting from our merger with the Alexandria Schools Trust (AST) in 2014. We are committed to fulfilling the former charity’s mission, promoting and maintaining teaching of the English language in the Middle East. Case study The Schools Partnership Programme The Schools Partnership Programme is our cluster-based school improvement model based on rigorous and impact-focused peer review. We support school leaders to drive their own improvement, through a continuous cycle of self-review, peer review and school-to-school support and improvement.
