ImpactEd is an award-winning social enterprise that exists to help evaluate, understand and improve impact in education.
In our education system, we invest huge amounts of time, money and energy in different programmes and interventions to improve outcomes for pupils. Yet far too often, we don’t know what is working – and what isn’t. We exist to address this evaluation deficit, helping schools and those working with them to better understand what is working to make a difference to the lives of young people. We do this through a combination of hands-on partnership, training and consultancy, and our digital platform which makes monitoring and evaluation quicker, easier and more effective.
Since being founded in 2017, we have grown rapidly. In 2018, we won the Teach First Innovation Award; in 2019, our work was profiled by the Department for Education and we were finalists in the Education Resources Awards; and in 2020 we launched a partnership with Big Change. We now reach over 100,000 young people in over 400 schools through the ImpactEd platform, and partner with 50 education organisations. We are a small, dedicated, and growing team committed to maximising social impact: a mix of former teachers, academic researchers and software developers, our work is overseen by a Board with significant experience of social entrepreneurship and third sector leadership.
