Our aims

We are committed to sharing knowledge with, and between, people working in education policy and practice. We are also building support for evidence-based education, and providing expertise and practical tools wherever we can.

We:

  • help teachers and schools reflect on their practice to identify the challenges they face
  • commission and facilitate research where evidence is lacking
  • where research is available, help schools to develop and evaluate new approaches that build on that evidence
  • communicate the results of this and other research and its implications for practice with the education community
  • support schools in developing structures and approaches that enable them to embed the approaches that prove effective and efficient
  • campaign for the adoption of effective and efficient approaches
  • find new ways of connecting research with practice.
