We are proud to announce that EDT has partnered with the UK’s Department for Education (DfE) to deliver new Skills Bootcamps in Early Years across England.
High-quality early years education – in the first five years of life – is a hugely important foundation for lifelong learning and behaviour. An increasing number of governments around the world are recognising its importance and are reorientating their understanding of early years provision to focus on not just childcare, but more on early education. Here, we consider this growing interest and the importance of high-quality training and development for early years educators in optimising their environments and thereby giving children a strong start in life.
The Cambodian government has been successful in raising girls’ enrolment and academic achievement in recent years, with girls’ enrolment reaching 100% in 2021 and girls outperforming boys in reading, writing and mathematics at Grade 5 level. While this is hugely encouraging for girls’ education in the country, these statistics alone do not help us to understand the extent to which gender imbalances are being addressed and improved within the classroom.
We are delighted to announce that EDT’s Schools Partnership Programme has confirmed a continuation of its collaboration with University College London.
Our Skills Bootcamps in Early Years are free, flexible, short courses that will give you the opportunity to build up your skills in childcare. You will be working in a fun and fulfilling environment where you will be making an impact on young lives.

Our Annual Impact Review for 2022/2023 once again reveals substantial growth in the reach and impact of EDT’s work around the world. This year’s report – the fifth of its kind – focuses on the period between September 2022 and August 2023, and shows not only how we have touched the lives of more teachers and learners than ever before, but also highlights some of the real, human stories of the impact of the work that we do on the lives of individuals across the globe.
