Leading and sharing
new thinking
and effective practice


The National Education Trust was created in 2006 as an independent charitable foundation.

We harness our extensive national and international experience to bring about improvements for learners, from early years to university entrance. We assist education leaders and practitioners in sustaining success and tackling underperformance. Our knowledge and expertise enables us to lead and support policy reform, rooted in what works in the classroom.

An on-going priority for the Trust is addressing the needs of vulnerable learners, including challenging ‘the achievement gap’, a stubborn feature of our education system. 

Working with schools, the third sector, local and national government, and other education agencies, we are at the forefront of the drive to improve educational outcomes for all and realise our vision of excellence as standard.

The Trust has the following key areas of work:

  • A national resource for high quality practice, new thinking and innovation in learning
  • An independent provider of high quality and high impact, school improvement and professional development services
  • An authoritative contributor to education policy debate and reform
  • A provider of education through our Academies
