• Welcome to EdCentral

    Back in 2015 we surveyed hundreds of teachers to ask them what they would like from an online teacher network. Based on that feedback we built a friendly, secure space where teachers can support one another and exchange ideas.

    Because sometimes 280 characters just isn't enough and other social networks are too generic (and way too public).

    Our teacher network, EdConnect, is designed exclusively for teaching professionals and specifically created for sharing and collaboration.

    We're an independent, not-for-profit, social enterprise – informed by a panel of teachers and with a vision of a teacher-driven school system.

    We also curate and signpost education research, CPD-related events, news and policy and present it in a no-frills, easily accessible format. Alongside this, our own content is produced by teachers and education experts and aims to inform, inspire and amuse.

    Feel free to browse around and if you like what you see, please spread the word. The more teachers using EdCentral the more helpful it will be. When you're ready to create your own professional profile and start connecting, you can use the link below.
