A quality education for all - WE will not stand for mediocrity

Children across the world face barriers preventing them from accessing quality education. The Global Learning Crisis is affecting over 250 million children around the world stifling their life chances and reducing the growth of nations and continents.

The world is accepting mediocrity in education. Would you stand for mediocrity in your own classroom?

To help our fight we have created free resources for you to use to educate your learners on the issues facing their peers around the world.

  • Free teaching resources

    These resources include content and implementation for five lessons, which will educate your learners on the global learning crisis.

WHy teachers are at the heart of solving the global learning crisis?

World-renowed education expert, John Hattie, has extensively researched the biggest impacts on the learning achievement of children. His findings have shown that teachers collectively believing they can make a difference and backing this up with evidence is the number one impact on achievements.

Further to this Hattie has gone onto explain that teachers must have the correct mindset and provide students with a clear purpose and understanding of their learning journeys. This will create classrooms built on trust where mistakes are seen as opportunities to learn, and the teachers are constantly assessing their own impact.

Together with your school we can raise education standards around the world

A partnership with us is a partnership based on shared values of providing a quality education for all.

We work with school partners to set a fundraising target and in the following three ways:

  • Whole school

    Connect with a school in an under-resourced setting

  • Teachers

    Gain additional TPD through teacher partnering.

  • Students

    Increase empathy, communication, critical thinking and confidence skills

‘CET’s help in finding partner schools in Africa has been invaluable for us. Regular online conversations between Year 9 pupils have enabled our pupils to learn about the educational challenges facing partner pupils and has deepened the understanding of the UN sustainable development goals this generation faces on both sides. It has also been great fun: the buzz, excitement and positivity has been amazing!’
