Education Development Trust
At Education Development Trust, they have been supporting education system leaders as they adapt to ongoing change in the ways they work and how they deliver teaching and learning. They have conducted extensive research with their partners to understand the challenge, and build an evidence-base of what works. They are also helping their clients and partners to prepare for profound longer-term changes in how they work, and how they can make schools and school systems more resilient in the months and years to come. Their concept of Learning Renewed captures this thinking.
To support implementing their Learning Renewed ideas, Education Development Trust can offer a wealth of expertise, from their in-depth technical consultancy and research services for education ministries, to their decades’ experience designing and delivering education programmes nationally. Together, they provide an end-to-end support offer for education system leaders to navigate the challenges presented by Covid-19, and mitigate its impacts on education for teachers and learners around the world.
They invite you to contact them to discuss our thinking on Learning Renewed, or particular implementation issues or challenges you may be facing and how they can best support you.
