EdCentral is a not-for-profit social enterprise. Back in 2015 we surveyed hundreds of teachers and education professionals to ask them what they would like from an online platform. Based on that feedback we built a friendly, secure space where everyone working in education can support one another and exchange ideas. Our professional network, EdConnect and our discussion forum, EdTalk, are specifically designed for sharing and collaboration.
We also curate and signpost education news, research, CPD-related events, and education policy - the latter compiled by education policy guru, Steve Besley, ex head of policy at Pearson. All our content is presented in a no-frills, easily accessible format. Alongside this, our blogs are written by teachers and education experts. Throughout, our aim is to inform, inspire and amuse.
