Brighter Futures - Coming soon

Education Development Trust launch a brand new podcast - listen to the trailer for a preview now.


Welcome to ‘Brighter Futures’, the podcast brought to you by the Education Development Trust. I’m Tony McAleavy, Education Director at Education Development Trust and I’ll be your host throughout this series. Since starting my role here I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in extensive education reform within many countries, particularly those in the UK, the Middle East, and Africa.

As a non-for-profit organisation working towards more positive education outcomes around the world, our aim is to improve school systems, and transitions from education into the world of work. Our recent work has provided teachers in England with professional development, supported the teaching of Syrian refugees in Jordan & Lebanon, and improved numeracy & literacy teaching in Rwandan primary schools.

The Brighter Futures podcast presents another opportunity to further our impact, and transform lives through the reform of education systems globally. This podcast is for the policy makers, government officials, charities and trusts who inspire positive changes to education policy worldwide.

In each episode of Brighter Futures we’ll be bringing together a panel of international experts to discuss their passion for global education, and feature their inspiring work and research, all focused around a particular topic every month.

With every guest comes an opportunity to discover new, world-leading ways to support leaders in unlocking pathways for the next generation of students.

A key element behind the success of our work is the application of evidence-based insights to policy challenges; expect lots of practical takeaways in different areas. The podcast will cover high-impact professional development for teachers, girls’ education, transitions into work, and improving the standards of education for children around the world.

We’ll be releasing a new panel episode every month, with a bonus episode rounding up all the latest news and research from Education Development Trust. 

Be sure to follow the podcast on the platform of your choice, and we look forward to seeing you soon for episode 1 of Brighter Futures.
