EdisonLearning is a leading provider of school improvement services through our research based school partnering programmes. We work with Local Authorities, Diocese, Academy Trusts and schools and are the delivery partner for the NAHT Aspire Programme. If you know schools that we work with, you will know their enthusiasm for our approach, its impact and the strength of their relationships with advisers, which are all evidenced by the University of Derby’s independent evaluation of the NAHT Aspire Pilot group of schools.

People are our biggest asset: we believe we can be the best by employing staff of real quality, who are able to demonstrate that quality through their work, whether they are working with and in schools, or providing consultancy to stakeholders in educational projects. Always informed and driven by our educational vision, our teams provide practical hands-on support, while striving to be flexible and collaborative with partners and clients.

Current Opportunities

– Associate Achievement Advisers

This is an exciting opportunity to join our growing team of Associate Achievement Advisers to work. Associate Achievement Advisers are trained to work with EdisonLearning advisers to deliver network partnerships and offer tailored training to schools that have purchased one of our component products.

Associate Achievement Advisers need to be able need to make a commitment of 40 to 60 days per year to support a school network (e.g. as part of the NAHT Aspire programme). Associate Achievement Advisers receive a free initial training course. Once paired with one of EdisonLearning’s lead Achievement Advisers they will attend Leadership and Key Lead Network Days in which the plans for follow up Development Days in each individual school are agreed.
