Impact Report Our outstanding people are our biggest asset Our work delivering the National Careers Service was judged as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2017. As a learning organisation, we commissioned our own review into what we do well and why our approach is effective and our report, Putting people first, shares our findings. Laura Bell is Director of Careers at Education Development Trust and was instrumental in commissioning the report. Impact Report Let all girls learn Our work in Kenya, part of the UK government Department for International Development (DFID) Girls' Education Challenge, has been identified as one of the most effective GEC Step Change projects in the world. In this publication, Tony McAleavy, Director of Research and Consultancy at Education Development Trust, looks at why we were so successful. Impact Report Raising student achievement in literacy and numeracy Our specialised solution resulted in a transformation of performance with more than half of the government school student cohort obtaining grades equvalent to native-speaker level (A*-C); an increase of more than 30 per cent in a 10-year period compared to a 5 per cent increase in the previous 10 years. Impact Report Annual Impact Review 2018/19 We have reviewed and measured the impact of our work over the 2018-19 period and published the results for the first time. Impact Report Our response to the Syrian crisis Our work in response to the Syrian refugee crisis has three core elements: we upskill teachers of refugees on the ground in Lebanon and Jordan; we advise and support governments and agencies on policy; and we contribute to the much-needed evidence base through our research.
