Welcome to

We provide school improvement and training services based on our internationally-recognised research and guidance.

Our team draws together professionals with a range of experiences in research, school leadership, classroom practice, school improvement, CPD and project management. We're based at the Centre for Inclusive Education, UCL Institute of Education.

We provide consultancy, and run courses for school leaders, teachers and TAs to help ensure TAs thrive in their role and contribute to improved outcomes for pupils. We've been involved with producing leading national guidance on making the best use teaching assistants and the professional standards for TAs.  

We're running the UK's largest trial on improving TA deployment and practice, in a project funded by the Education Endowment Foundation. We also won the 2019 British Educational Research Association's Public Engagement and Impact team award.
