Core values

Educator driven

We connect educators with the opportunities, people, support and resources to use their knowledge and expertise to co-design and drive change and improvement in education

Child-Centred

We place improving the lives and broadening the opportunities for children at the heart of our work

Active and collaborative partnership

We bring together stakeholders in active and mutually reinforcing partnerships to collaboratively build knowledge and expertise

Diverse approaches and outcomes

We encourage a pluralistic approach that embraces diverse perspectives and avoids seeking a single ‘right’ answer

Our Activities

Research and Thought Leadership

We conduct and disseminate rigorous scholarship on questions and issues that matter, to inform fresh thinking and to impact policy and practice.

We are committed to learning from our bright spots – the schools, teachers, programmes and initiatives that are providing innovative and enriching opportunities and achieving outstanding outcomes for learners. Our focus on bright spots enables us to move away from diagnosing what is wrong, to learning from and celebrating our successes.

 

Evidence for Action

Building a culture of evidence-informed conversations and decision making in education by developing online and offline tools and engagement opportunities to capture and share educators’ practical knowledge and innovative practice, and to disseminate rigorous evidence and research in useful ways among diverse stakeholders.

 

Innovation Partnerships

Supporting school based research practice partnerships to enable researchers and practitioners to work together to develop, test and scale promising new practices and to encourage evidence use in schools.

 

Community Building

Creatively and critically engaging people in powerful learning opportunities, which facilitate impactful contributions to teaching and learning in schools and across networks of schools.
