About us


We’re here to support great teaching. We’re an independent public body. We work in partnership to improve pupil outcomes and close the disadvantage gap by supporting teachers to teach, and enabling pupils to access a high-quality curriculum.

Our leadership team brings together experts from across education, technology, school support and operations to deliver the best support to teachers and value for money for the public. Learn more about them below.
