Impact Report

Annual Impact Review 2021/22

Our fourth Annual Impact Report reveals phenomenal growth in the reach and impact of our programmes to improve education across the world. The report – focusing on the year to September 2022 – shows how we have engaged with more teachers, leaders and education systems internationally than ever before and improved outcomes and experiences for learners. We are continually building innovation and evidence into our programme delivery, research and consultancy to consolidate our position as a thought-leading organisation for education reform.

Our work impacted 9.2 million learners worldwide, a rise of 155% on the previous year. Almost 40% of the learners we reached globally are disadvantaged, which chimes with our purpose of improving lives through education.  

We brought positive change to more than double the number of schools and educational settings than the previous year by reaching 36,700 school leaders – who are key ‘agents of change’ in education settings – a rise of 278%.  

Among our maturing programmes in Sub-Saharan Africa, we have supported girls to stay in education and to feel empowered about their own wellbeing, learning and career plans; developed the professional practice of education leaders; and raised the literacy and maths attainment of teachers and learners alike. Newer schemes are bringing careers awareness to students in the Middle East and renewed contracts have extended our reach to some of the youngest – and most vulnerable – children to support the best start possible in their education and help close the disadvantage gap. 

From our careers engagement and employability portfolio to our UK and global teacher and school development programmes, we continue to collaborate with more organisations and expert practitioners to improve lives through education.
