We work in partnership with clients to help them develop effective education reforms to improve teaching and learning across whole education systems. We use our research and evidence to support and scale up improvements to school systems around the world, tailoring our work to local contexts.
We know that effective teaching starts with excellent teachers, and highly effective teachers also help improve their peers’ performance as well as children’s learning. We support professional development journeys with expert content, resources and communities of practice, adapted to different needs, contexts and settings.
Education has the power to transform girls’ lives around the world. We work to strengthen systems to improve learning outcomes and empower girls through quality teaching and learning.
We improve efficiency and expertise in school inspections, designing accredited accountability structures that delivery a positive impact on student outcomes and sustainably build good practice for local inspectors.
Education leadership is second only to the quality of teaching in terms of impact on learning outcomes. Our expertise enables effective school and system leaders to create the best conditions for student learning in a variety of contexts and settings, supporting them to become agents of change within and beyond their schools and districts.
Underpinning everything we do, our research supports decision-making for governments, policymakers and practitioners. We use our data insights to identify and leverage the key factors that impact learning and develop global networks for evidence creation and sharing.
We provide engaging and expert employability and careers guidance to young people and adults, including in communities where gender equity and poverty present particular barriers to work transitions and personal development.
This month, we were proud to sponsor the Education World Forum (EWF), the world’s largest gathering of education and skills ministers. The London-based conference brought over 140 ministers of education together consider this year’s EWF theme: stronger, bolder, better education by design.
How do teachers and school leaders protect and preserve teacher professional development when disruption hits, as in the Covid-19 pandemic? In case studies from Kenya and Rwanda, where ‘communities of practice’ were already in place to support teacher training and learning, we explore how collaborative learning and elements of technology mitigated some of the challenges facing educators during periods of school closure and remote education.
Learning at Work Week (15-21 May 2023) celebrates the value of lifelong learning and creating learning cultures in the workplace. Its theme, ‘Create the Future’, highlights the year-round job of employers to support, encourage and direct their employees to develop the skills needed to meet business goals. Skills are (the most important) part of what makes the business a success. Here we look at some of the work that is taking place in the UK to inform this understanding.
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has given Building Learning Foundations (BLF) a rating of A+ in its 2023 review. It is the second time BLF has achieved this excellent rating since starting in 2017.
