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.
Our National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) empower leaders and aspiring leaders to create conditions for change, embedding evidence-informed teaching and learning in the classroom, department, school, early years setting or trust. All our NPQs are fully funded for staff at state-funded schools and colleges.
