About Education Development Trust

Education Development Trust is an international not-for-profit organisation that transforms lives around the world by improving education and delivering careers and employability services.

We have been working with governments, donor agencies, schools, leaders and teachers to effect and embed sustainable change for 50 years. As part of our charitable mission, we invest annually in a major programme of education research, which is available to download from our website. The insights from this research inform the projects we deliver, as well as influencing policymaking and supporting practitioners around the world.

In addition to our work in the early years sector in England, we deliver career and enrichment services in schools and community settings as well as provide CPD and learning support programmes to educators and school leaders across all stages of their career. We are proud that across our programmes in UK during the 2020/21 period, we supported over 17,000 education practitioners.
